Day 22 - Wise Men Craft
We read the story of the three wise men from Matthew chapter 2 and made a star mobile to hang from the ceiling and lead the way to the infant king. We also learned the chorus of "We Three Kings" to sing together as I sang the verses.
|Oh! Star of Wonder, Star of Night!|
We headed across the river to have Christmas with Grandpa and Gigi, who were able to join us for the zoo lights. The only thing that would have made the day more fun was if Daddy hadn't been on call.
|W climbing on a giant beetle instead of enjoying the lights|
|N liked the trees with lots of colors|
|goofing with Grandpa|
|N and Gigi on the carousel: on the tiger and cheetah (he LOVES big cats)|
|W and Grandpa on the carousel: on a penguin (one of W's faves) and a donkey|
Each of us had a box under the tree marked as "Christmas Eve." The boys got the job of finding them, then we took turns opening.
|W first: Angry Birds (red for him, of course) with Santa hats!|
|Next N: green (of course) with Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater with reindeer antlers|
|L's turn: Toy Story aliens with candy canes (maybe just striped jet packs, but close enough) and plenty of green and blue|
|Daddy got Santa Snoopy and buffalo plaid flannel pants. Mommy (not pictured) got Mickey and Minnie Mouse on ice skates|
|despite the fact that it was 11a.m., the littles had to try on their Christmas pjs|
|We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!|
