I decided that I wanted to do the Tinsel advent study in the morning. It's a nice break before lunch and the ornaments are supposed to be fairly quick. Day 1- the Study was on the fact that Jesus is the light of the world. While we talked about how we don't like being in the dark but it's ok when we have a nightlight, the boys made some Stained Glass Candles.
Tinsel - We did not get to our ornament craft today. I put it off and shouldn't have because then we didn't get to it. It's ok though, because I can make it up later this week.
Grinch: Ok, we are doing our countdown every day but I've discovered that the boys just want a "treat" so I've decided to make it easy for me and instead of trying to do a crafty thing or anything else on some days, I just make sure there is a treat in the pocket - M and M's, Peanut Butter Cups, Kit Kats. That is what makes them happy :-)
We did nothing today - well, actually we did lots but it was because we had a couple of guests with us all day so we did not do either our Tinsel or Grinch activities today :-)
