We took ALL of December off from school. But we were still busy learning.
We are doing Truth in the Tinsel where each day we learn a verse and make an ornament to go with it. It’s very cute and the kids totally get it this year.
We decorated some cookies with Great Grandma.
At church playgroup we read the story of the first Christmas and did some Jesus crafts. Then we went on a candy cane hunt!
The next week church playgroup went to visit a nursing home to spread some Christmas spirit. The kids made handprint reindeer and handed them out to the patients. It was a beautiful day.
Timmy was there but was hiding from the paparazzi.
Our church had a breakfast with Santa on Sunday with pancakes, eggs and sausage. All free. And then Santa took pictures with the kids. He gave each kid a candy cane that instantly turned that place into a mad house.
On Tuesday we had Light up for Christ. All the Catholic Churches at the same time around the country sing Christmas carols and tell the story of the first Christmas. Then at 7:00 they turn on the Christnas light display. After they serve hot chocolate and cookies. I just love my church so much it’s so cute.
This is all the kids listening to Father Ulto tell the Christmas show.
We had a Christmas play date at Brynn & Jo’s house. We all wore our Christmas Jammie’s.
The kids built gingerbread houses and it was not as easy as it looks.
Poor Max had a sub par construction crew.
Timmys came out cute.
Then we watched the Grinch and had some Grimch popcorn. Timmy could not handle that the marshmellows were green. He kept holding his nose saying he didn’t want any stinky marshmellows.
Homemade hot chocolate tastes like liquid chocolate ice cream. Was amazing!
Nothing says Christmas spirit like a dip in the pool. It is so frustrating and really a little depressing that it is this hot.
Our elves have been busy too.
It is exactly ONE week until Christmas Day. So we will be taking it easy baking and getting this house ready for everyone to come over on Christmas morning. 🎄
