December is pretty much synonymous with Santa. This year Tom and Abby were obsessed! We went to a Santa parade, we visited Santa, we tracked Santa's movements on Christmas Eve with NORAD Santa tracker online. Subsequently we had to look each position up on our globe to see how close he was getting to California as the night progressed. The whole month really was magic.
I think one of the twins' favorite activities during the month of December is the Advent calendar. What 4 year old wouldn't want candy, EVERY... SINGLE... DAY? We have this huge beautiful sturdy wooden Advent calendar shaped like a house with 25 little doors on it. Tom opened all the odd numbered doors and Abby even numbered doors. They got such a kick out of discovering what kind of candy was inside each night, even though I only chose three types of candy for the whole month!
A couple of my most favorite twin adventures this month are already detailed in my blog. If you haven't already read them and you have a couple extra minutes, give it a whirl. I don't think I could do them justice by retelling them here.
