Part of me is sad this time of the year is ending, each day is so special and fun and a great way to celebrate Jesus. The other part of me is glad, that I don't have to worry about forgetting to filling the advent calendar with treats late every night and move the elf to a new place, when there simply aren't 24 places in our home. But mostly I am sad it is coming to an end... I don't like January.
Maya & Norah had a mini Christmas performance at Ballet class. And Norah.... she made us laugh the entire time and I am not sure any of that time she actually spent dancing. She mostly was just holding up her skirt, looking at the ceiling and humming. Kind of like what you picture in the movies, the kid who is totally distracted and not paying attention
Watch this short video and see for yourself (maya is right next to her)
Day 18: Open a special gift
Brett had the idea to get these special tumblers for the girls so they could have special drinks in their own coffee cup. They were so cute, from Starbucks, and they got to decorate them! They are kid size..... can you guys what one of our follow up advent activities is going to be?
Our City has a tour you can do to see all of the Christmas light, we did the half of the tour closer to our house and it was so much better than aimlesly driving around. We like the houses with the "dancing" Christmas lights, that is the one that are synchronized with music, basic extravagant lights on a house just don't cut it anymore
|He's the perfect dad for 3 daughters|
We didn't get to do this last year because it was snowing, but I was so glad we got to this year. It is always so fun to have an excuse to see daddy! The girls wore their Christmas dresses and brought treats for all. They even handed treats to people we didn't know at all. They brought a lot of joy to the office
If any of you are doing something like this, let me know!
I would love to know some of the activities you are doing!
