December 3rd- Letters to Santa

Another busy day at our house.  I know that this is just the tip of the iceberg, but with one child in Kindergarten and another in Preschool, both in dance, and it feels likes we are always going somewhere.  Luckily I planned our advent activities accordingly so on busy days I scheduled simpler activities.

This afternoon we started by reading today's scripture passage which came from Matthew, 2:1-12.  This passage tells us about the how the wise men traveled to search out the baby Jesus.

After we read our scripture we started in on some little letters so Santa Claus.
 Lily told me what to write for Gideon's letter, he apparently would like cars, and then Gideon alternated between scribbling on his paper and trying to eat the marker.
 Charlotte dictated her letter to me and then drew a picture of the gift that she requested, a blanket.  This girl is like her aunts, she loves to be wrapped up in a blanket.
 Lily wrote her own letter to Santa.  She told him that she is nice and that she would like a sled.
 We then put the letters into an envelope to send off to the North Pole.
