I love how involved my girls are getting with the advent calendar. They ask to do the calendar climb up on the couch and open the package, hand me the card with the day's plan and eat their treat while we read our scripture for the day.
We continue to work our way through the Christmas story. Yesterday we talked about the angel's visitation to the shepherds and today we read Luke 2:15-20, where the shepherds came to see Mary and the baby Jesus and then left to spread the word about what they had seen and heard.
Our activity for today was a snowman dinner. Tuesdays are very busy days for us between preschool, dance class, and everything else so I had planned an activity that could be done during the evening. We started out by making a snowman pizza complete with a carrot nose, though we substituted olives for the traditional coal.
After dinner was cleaned up we had snowman ice cream for dessert. The girls were so excited by the little faces on their ice cream.
