I try to do a Christmas activity each day during December to go along with our advent countdown. But, I must admit I failed miserably this year. Between being sick and tired most of December we were lucky to do a few things I had planned, none of which were on the day I had planned. A reminder that all we really need to in advent is "wait." Not necessarily keep busy. None the less we enjoyed one afternoon of ornament painting. It started out pretty tame and I was shocked by how "clean" it was going. I went to the bathroom for 3 minutes and came back to paint covered faces. Emerson was especially proud of her face painting. I knew it wasn't going to be that easy. The kids did a great job of decorating and we ended with a much needed bath.
