It has been a rough day in the Hansen house. Poor Charlotte is just as sick as can be with a stomach bug, she can't keep food down, has been running a fever, and has been sleeping most of the day. This afternoon, after a good long nap on the living room floor (her choice, not mine) she woke up and smiled, so I got our advent package down for today. We read our scripture, Malachi 3:1 and talked a little more about who John the Baptist was.
Our activity for the day was to learn a new Christmas song. They were not cooporating on video mode, so you will have to settle for a still image. I taught Lily the words to Christmas Bells and I think that she almost has it down.
Christmas bells are ringing,
Hear what they say to you,
Jesus is born, in Bethlehem.
Short, simple and to the point!
Afterwards the girls spent some time coloring in the Christmas coloring book that Grandma Hansen gave them last year.
I found this great pin a month or so ago and printed the images out, laminated them, and the applied a magnet strip to the back.
The girls loved it! Hours of play this afternoon with some pretty interesting story lines.
