Wow! What a whirlwind of a day!
We decided to do a little Christmas shopping (boy is that interesting with a 3 year old and a 1 year old!.....I think next week we'll find a babysitter!). We went to Hobby Lobby and look what I stumbled across:
A magnetic nativity set! This provided Channing with some entertainment this afternoon :-)
When we got home from shopping, we read "Mother Hubbard's Christmas" By John O'Brien. I picked up my copy from the huge used book sale at our local library this summer - what a great find! It's a funny rhyming story about all the tricks the dog gets up to while Mother Hubbard is doing "Christmassy" things for him. In the end, the dog is the one who makes the Christmas feast.
We also made a bagel wreath today for a snack. We used cream cheese colored with a little green food coloring.....I had planned on using red M&M's but didn't have any, so we used mini marshmallows and a little red glitter sprinkles.
Channing also loved this counting activity.
We also had the HUGE task this afternoon of decorating our Student Home with all the boys......our first little sprinkle of snow came down as we decorated :-)There won't be any posts from me this weekend.......We are "off duty" (we only get 2 weekend off a month - and pretty much work 24/7 the rest of the time).......since we've all been sick, we're practically CRAWLING into this weekend! While there will (hopefully) be lots of sleeping taking place, we'll still be doing our advent activities - I'll post about them on Monday :-) Have a great weekend everyone, I can't wait to see what you get up to.
