You may recall that this season of preparation and waiting is my favorite. I love it. And I love making each day filled with little activities keeping our hearts and minds focused on the real meaning of Christmas. I’m feeling a little stretched thin this year, so the planning isn’t what I would like it to be…but I’m just trying to move forward without the pressure of doing everything memorably. =) If the boys have a general joy-filled sense that the Christmas season is about celebrating Jesus’ first coming and anticipating His second one, I’ll be pleased.
We are using Advent Calendar workbooks given by Grandma Cleve this year as our study (thank you, Grandma Cleve!!!). And Micah is coloring a picture for each day from his CBS teacher (Side note – CBS is his favorite day of the week now! How far we’ve come by the grace of God!!).
Day 1 – make snowflakes and hang them from the ceiling in the boys’ room:
Day 2 – watch a Christmas movie:
Day 3 – breakfast for dinner (Micah’s birthday): WAFFLES (thanks, Amy, for the waffle-maker!)
Day 4 – Red and green dinner (one of my personal favorites!):
