Sunday ~ We attended an outdoor performance of A Christmas Carol. We had a couple friends performing in it so it was worth the cold temps. It was fun seeing a performance at night under the stars and our friends did a great job.
Monday ~ We accomplished several charities this week. We started handing out the homeless kits we made last week, turned in a few picture books to our library's Santa Tree, and sent out the box we prepared for the young boy in St. Croix we were assigned through the Adopt a Family program. Did you know there are people all through the Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico who are still without electricity from the hurricanes? My kids really enjoy these hands-on projects. They especially like it when we carry a box of our homemade kits in the car, ready to hand out to the homeless. Dean, especially, has a heart for the homeless.

|Our St. Croix box also includes a mosquito spray and mosquito repellent candle.|
Thursday ~ We did tons of baking and I must admit I didn't get a single photograph. Maybe I will succeed when we bake more next week. We are having one baking day a week until Christmas.
Friday ~ We woke up to a surprise snowstorm and a very important doctor appointment that we had waited for nine months to attend. Luckily, we were able to make it there and back. Dean took a picture of our morning commute. The rest of the day was filled with outdoor play and board games by candlelight as we didn't have electricity for most of the day and evening.
