Christmas at the lake

Homer Lake, the local forest preserve had some Christmas activities for kids yesterday. They had several stations set up to make little gifts or ornaments. You could also wrap them if you wanted!

My kids favorite was making a bird feeder! They let the kids hang them behind the nature center- that seemed much less messy than taking it home so we did that ;)

Eli noticed something...
Rowan ran into a few friends from school so he was excited! They also had hot cocoa! It was really nice, I wish we were a little closer to them so we could go there more often. We went on a short hike after they were done.

We came home and watched Home Alone! I haven't seen it in years and the boys never had. They loved it!! Rowan asked if we could watch it every year :)
We ate homemade chocolate ice cream in the homemade waffle cones Mike made

I love this time of year :)
