Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving. We sure did, I think I am still stuffed!
We’ve been pretty busy around here. The BG and I decided to do an advent tree this year with the girls, and as organized as I tried to be before it started, it is keeping us on our toes.
We added lots of “doing for others” and craft projects/family activities, instead of just giving treats to the kids. So our house is covered in glitter, glue, flour, and sugar.
Here’s a shot of the advent tree, nothing special just simple burlap bags with the activities printed on paper slips inside.
The girls are loving it!
Tonight’s is an easy one (**thankful**) a new Christmas movie, treats, and popcorn.
Last Sunday’s activity was to make glitter houses, we worked on them all day and had lots of fun. Here’s how mine turned out so far, still needs some work because I was mostly helping the girls.
We bleached some bottle brush trees and in the process ruined my favorite sweatshirt…boo hoo. So if you ever do this put on an old shirt, you will get bleach on yourself. Crafting is a messy business! =)
Grandma Linda was here one night and helped me with that night’s advent to read Christmas books with hot coco to the girls.
Here’s some more of the Christmas tour:
