Another fun day as we countdown to Christmas! We started the day by reading our daily scripture which today came from Luke 2:42-49. This is where Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem as a boy and his parents found him a few days later in the temple, learning from the scholars. Here we see that Jesus sought learning.
Today we watched one of my favorite Christmas movies, Elf. We also read the book Elf: A Short Story of a Tall Tale which was really cute and all about how it is our differences that make us special.
For our refreshments during the show we followed the four food groups of the elves; candy, candy corn, candy canes,
and chocolate syrup mixed in with their milk. Some days we just don't quite manage a good picture, oh well. Here are my crazy kids. And don't worry, Gideon didn't get chocolate milk, just some water with a bit of apple juice.
In other news, Gideon's first tooth broke through today.
