'Tis the Season

Ordering nearly all our gifts on-line means big boxes delivered to our door.  And what's more fun that a cardboard box for a kid?
If 2 kids in a box is fun then 3 kids in a box must really be fun!

No.  Not so much.  If there were sound effects with that pictured you'd hear the "I'M SQUISHED!!  She's SQUISHING Me!!!  Ow!  Owwwww!" in Dolby Digital Sound!


Moving on to the quieter activity of storytime inside a fort we built out of sheets. 

 I love the beautiful pictures in this kids' Bible, especially that page with baby Jesus they are looking at in the picture!


Every year the kids make wrapping paper by stamping their handprints and footprints in red and green ink on white butcher paper.  Our warm weather last weekend really came in handy to have that messy activity outside on the driveway!


The kids were wearing shorts and sandals on Sunday and then literally needed heavy winter coats for Monday morning!  But the cold weather brought the perfect excuse for some Christmas hot chocolate! 


Homemade hot chocolate with wiped cream, red and green sprinkles and a candy cane to stir it with!  Yum!

 I hope you are enjoying the season!  Happy Friday!
