Advent Week 2

It's been another busy week around our house. On top of all the Christmassy fun you are about to see, we have been fighting off some nasty germs.

Day 8: Egg Nog, Popocorn, & The Muppets Christmas Carol

Shorty was sick that night and wisely chose to sleep it off. The rest of us thoroughly enjoyed Kermit & the Gang
 The Dynamic Duo have been singing this little number all week.

Their little brother might agree with the line "we specialized in causing pain..."

Day 9: Make Ornament Gifts
This one was earmarked especially for Daddy
Look out, family members! Some of these beauties might be headed your way!
 Day 10: Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow! & Snowy Craft

My picture for this day will not load up. Boo.
We learned a favorite Christmas Carol & sang it over and over again while making blizzard pictures with crayon, paint, and "snow"
Since I can't show you what we did, I'll leave you with this instead.

Day 11: Hot Chocolate (with homemade whipped cream) & A Charlie Brown Christmas
I tried to capture a cute image on the TV, but didn't...and was too lazy to actually adjust things to make it show. Forgive me.
Just one of the many reasons we love the Peanuts Gang:

Day 12: Make & Send Christmas Cards

The boys picked out a few friends & family members they would like to send personal greetings to, and we got busy with cardstock, markers, and stickers!
There is something special about receiving a card in the mailbox.

Day 13: Read Luke 2:1-20 & Crafts

I thought if I made them keep paper plates underneath their crafts it would contain the glitter. If it worked, I would hate to see what the kitchen would have looked like without those plates.
Our glittery votive candle holders represent how the glory of God shone around the shepherds.
The glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.
Our pinecone angels were among the host to appear an announce Jesus' birth to the shepherds
 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
    and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
Day 14: Build a Snowman & Caroling

It snowed! We were so excited that we needed to include this in our day!
Meet PigPen, our dirty snowman
an awful lot of this happened during the building process
Then we went Christmas Caroling on Mainstreet with our favorite music teacher!
Here's a little business plug for her.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas!

Jingle Bells!
