We had a great Christmas and a lot of fun having Jonathan home for 13 days. Both boys did a lot of fun things at school to celebrate as well. The boys each brought home some adorable ornaments that they made at school.
Similar to Elf on a Shelf, we found a gnome at our local garden store that we named Norman the Naughty Gnome. We only did it for about 7 days, but it was a fun activity to do with the boys. Here are pictures two of the things Norman did. He TP'd our Christmas tree, read stories to the stuffed animals, dumped popcorn kernels on Jack's bedroom floor, shaved with Jonathan's shaving cream and put some on the mirror, took a bite out of our Christmas cookies, and a few other things.
We also did our second annual gingerbread house decorating on FaceTime with my mom. I bought a little gingerbread village so both boys would have their own houses to do. Last year Owen didn't get into it very much, but he had a great time decorating this year.
Jonathan set up a tripod for our camera and got a family picture on Christmas Eve night.
Here are the kids playing with some of their gifts on Christmas morning.
