Our December fun slowed down a bit when everyone was feeling crummy. I know that we did something on Day 16, but I honestly have no idea what it was. Day 17 was skipped because the sickness was at its worst.
Day 18: The fun resumed with Christmas rice crispy treats!
Yes, they look very similar to regular rice crispy treats, but those sprinkles make them festive.
Day 19: Read The Legend of the Candy Cane & eat candy canes
This was a sweet story about the way that a candy cane can represent the story of Jesus.
Day 20: Snowman craft
Day 21: Hang out with small group & watch Michael Buble Christmas special
Day 22: Make red, white & green bead necklaces
Day 23: Look at Christmas lights
We found a neighborhood not too far from ours that had great displays!
Day 24: Decorate gingerbread cookies...
read the Nativity story...
leave aforementioned cookies for Santa...
& open one present! Jake & Mallory opened their gifts from each other. Mal was thrilled with the Strawberry Shortcake remote control car Jake had picked.
Jake was equally excited to find a set of cars from the Cars movie that Mal had selected.
Sweet thank you hugs
Beau opened Llama llama from Uncle Mark, Aunt Rachel & Belle. He snuggled right up with him at bed time.
Day 25: Christmas morning!
