Ten on Ten in December... (Instagram style)

Just for fun, I am linking up and joining Rebekah's Ten on Ten (a day in the life) Photo Challenge for December.

And, here we go....

Woke up early this morning while my boys were still sleeping to put the final touches on our Christmas tree...

The rain began to fall around forecast is calling for cold temps and rain all day...

Morning scripture study in our front living room with the lights dim while I enjoy all the Christmas decorations ...

I indulged---an afternoon snack (of sorts)...Starbucks Peppermint Hot Chocolate and a vanilla bean scone...

Played some of my favorite Christmas hymns on the piano...

 Wrapped a few Christmas presents...Lola slowed me down a bit--she kept rolling and nestling on the wrapping paper.  She likes the crackling noise of the paper and being close to her mommy...

Watched the first quarter of the Army/Navy game...listened to President Obama (who is at the game) give his two cents and then I got bored and channeled to something else...I'm a little sad that college football season is almost over. :-(

Noah's school Christmas craft plate he brought home is now displayed in the kitchen.  He's proud of it (and so am I)...

Our little one-eyed monster was bored being stuck in the house due to the rain, so we drove over to Redbox and picked up this movie.  He enjoyed eating a snack and watching the movie in Daddy's recliner.

Made some homemade chili with sweet cornbread....perfect for a cold, rainy day.

Happy 10th of December...

P.S.  You still have time to enter the Erin Condren $50 gift certificate giveaway I am doing here.  I am LOVING my new life planner.  :-)
