I just wanted to finish up with a post about our last week of our Christmas Advent. Again, keeping it real!
Day 19 (Monday) - Monday was a crazy, busy day here in our house after a busy weekend so I did not have time to really gather supplies. Besides, the boys had lots of new stuff to play with and were content with doing just that. I had planned to read "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" but instead, after paths, we watched it since I had recorded it earlier in the month.
Day 20 (Tuesday) - I planned NOTHING! Josh and I were gone part of the day; then he went home with my husband and I finished up shopping.
Day 21(Wednesday) Nothing again - it was a "Mom is working"day meaning I had so much stuff to get done that I told the boys I was "working" and they had to play on their own.
Day 22 (Thursday) - We watched Charlie Brown Christmas - yes, that's all.
Day 23 (Friday) We celebrated Nate's birthday as a family since my husband was out of town yesterday and then we had a family party so it was already a busy day.
So. . .in reality, we didn't do our advent this week. I need to plan better and less next year; and not drop the ball. The boys still enjoyed it all though and we did try to do something special each day even if it wasn't what I planned!
Merry Christmas :-)
