I failed quite a bit with documenting our continued advent celebration. I kept getting so caught up in the moment and would realize later that I meant to take pictures! Oh well, bear with me. I’ll work on getting better!
Day 6: Make (and Enjoy) Mulled Wine. My first attempt wasn’t too shabby. We had friends over to enjoy and it seemed to be a hit! The perfect beverage to warm up with!
Day 7 & Day 8: We were on the road over the weekend to visit our cousins in Portland. So to make things easier I made these days “treat” days. Paul got a Bag o’ Sunflower seeds (which is one of his favorite things about road trips) and a Theo Chocolate bar for us to enjoy. The best part though was playing with this handsome fellow! He is going to be a heart breaker!
Day 9: Scripture Reading & Candle Lighting.
Day 10: Game Night & Christmas Music. I wanted to zone out to some Zombie Dice, but Paul talked me into playing a mellower card game called Pitch. It was a delightful evening!
Day 12: Make a Holiday Treat. We made Dark Chocolate Peppermint truffles which were amazing!! Typically I never share the kitchen with Paul. This was an easy way for us to get our hands dirty (literally) and share in the food making experience.
PS - How cute are those plates! My Secret Santa aka dear friend Christianna got those for me! I've been using them a lot!
Day 13: Kissing under the mistletoe (no explanation needed).
Day 15: Gather with Community. This was awesome! We had a group of friends over for a breakfast potluck. We also collected coats and blankets to donate to the homeless youth. I do not have any pics of the nearly 20 adults and 7 kids that packed our house! But here is a picture of the great stuff we donated!
