Advent activities 16-20

Day 16 – family sleep over!  We brought down the boys’ mattresses and set up a bed for ourselves on the couch. We watched a Christmas movie together and noticed that the snow was staring to fall when it was done! So fun!  We watched it snow for a bit and then all fell asleep together.  

Day 17 – we were supposed to go feed the homeless downtown this morning, but the weather was literally below zero. We will have to try to do this another day when it’s safer to be outside. We settled for about 30 minutes of playing outside when the temps reached 10 degrees. 

Day 18 – Christmas program at church and ice cream sundaes! 

Micah didn’t end up participating in the singing at church, unfortunately, but Ethan did a wonderful job!  He sang three songs at the beginning of the service. I made videos during the practice before the service as I am not a fan of taking pics/videos in church. šŸ™‚ I’ll have to post those another time. 

Day 19 – sing at a nursing home with some friends from classical conversations. 

Day 20 – make a birthday cake for Jesus! We got to open some gifts (Christmas and belated birthday gifts for Micah and Ashley) with Aunt Ashley that day.  Because we had all been sick recently, we kept the party brief and outside. šŸ™‚ 

The remaining advent activities mostly just involve traveling, so this concludes our 2016 advent activities posts. šŸ™‚ It’s been a crazy month, but I guess that’s fitting since our whole year has been a bit of a whirlwind!
