Let It Snow! - Week of Dec. 12th

"The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found? "~ J. B. Priestley

The white stuff quickly accumulated and the only unfortunate outcome was the freezing cold temperatures precluding any playtime in the snow.

Thankfully, we found indoor activities to keep us busy.  Early Christmas presents arrived for Cam and not a moment too soon with the frigid weather.  A new spelling activity from Auntie Leslie kept us busy creating a game out of letters and puzzles.
videoAuntie Karen sent a gift that keeps on giving every month- Little Passports. There are multiple options to choose from and Cam will be discovering the USA with monthly activities, games, science experiments & more!
He was beyond excited to see the contents of his first passport package and has asked to work on it every day.

Cam opted not to visit Santa in the mall this year but did want to send a letter.  Luckily, our local D&W store has a special mailbox just for delivery to the North Pole.
His request was short and to the point..."Dear Santa, I would like a squish ball for the water like the one from swimming class.  Thank you.  Merry Christmas.  From, Cam."  His questions, however, were endless regarding the delivery method and route taken from the Santa mailbox.

Amanda and Cam entertained each other in the evening when Chris and Jane finished up some holiday shopping.  Baking delicious treats is a favorite for these two as noted by the plate of warm cookies.  Can't you just smell the goodness?

Camology Quotes:

This year Cam discovered that one radio station in town plays Christmas music 24/7 through the holidays.  While in the van or in his bathroom, he requests us to tune in and "turn it up, please."

Mom asked, What is your favorite kind of music? 
Christmas music!
Why is it your favorite? 
Because there are pretty voices and I like all of the songs.
