Just wanted to give you a brief update of our Advent Envelopes.
Day 1- Welcome to the Christmas Season! Enjoy some cinnamon rolls for breakfast (on a school day). Tonight we will have a Christmas decoration scavenger hunt. (Scavenger hunt in action above. 10-Santas, 8-reindeer, and the word "NOEL" were some of the things on the list.)
Day 2- Candy Cane Hunt.
Day 3- Make a gingerbread house.
Day 4-Work on Christmas puzzles with Dad. (This continues because I bought a pack of 10 puzzles. They have finished 3 and are working right now as I type.
Day 5-Watch ELF. My favorite.
Day 6-Make Christmas cards to take to Nana and her friends (Nana is my 89 year old grandmother who lives at an assisted living home) and our neighborhood firemen.
Day 7-Read the real Christmas story. Luke 2:1-20.
Day 8-Shop at Wal-mart to fill our Salvation Army stocking. We picked a baby. This way we did not have to go to the toy department at all and they could focus on the giving part of the exercise.
Day 9-Go to the drive-thru Bethlehem at the church up the street.
Day 10-Family game Night.
So that's where we are. We have also read our book every night. The kids are really enjoying opening a book "present" each night. I'll leave you with this...
