Here's what we've been up to in the Christmas department this past week!
Boat parade at the downtown waterfront area! Sorry for the picture quality - I mostly just want to preserve the memory for the little ladies!
Hot chocolate bar, peppermint brownies and a viewing of The Polar Express with two ladies who stayed with us traveling with a Christian University praise and worship team.
Note: I know there will be varying opinions on viewing of movies with Santa as the theme. Truthfully, I struggled with this more than I thought I would. In the end, I could not think of a different movie to watch instead, but I don't think I will make plans to watch this again anytime soon. It just felt like a complete contradiction in what I'm trying to teach them about Christmas.
Play in the leaves! Not at all Christmasy, but something we did this week!
Had Emily's Sunday School teacher and her three children over for a fun morning! We made snow globes,
snowman cookies and had fun playing together!
Making, delivering and eating of Christmas cookies! And, the decorating of gingerbread houses!
How about you?
