Advent Day Twenty Two

Today's ornament - a star.
This was an Etsy find.  It is hand carved and then antiqued. 

Today was a down day for us.  No where to run to.  We just stayed at home.  Arlington and I finished the puzzle we have been working on for a few weeks.  She is getting really good at these puzzles.  This one was a hard one - it had a ton of pieces and also a lot of detail.  But she stuck with it and today she put the final piece in.  She doesn't want to take it apart yet - she wants Santa to see her accomplishment.  She has asked for two Harry Potter puzzles for Christmas, so that is probably part of the reason!
 We made gingerbread cookies, watched Polar Express, and just had a fun day.  The kids were tired tonight.  They have so much excitement about the upcoming holidays that they run around all day and crash at night.  They have a full week of school this week, and then they are off until January 2nd.  We are looking forward to the holiday and having a chance to spend it with family.
