Where did the rest of December go? I have no excuse for not blogging about the rest of our advent season, other than the fact that I was enjoying quality time with my husband. We had a week and a half off together and it was delightful!
So here is a list of our final Advent activities. Some of them we didn’t make it to, and we were okay with that! The moral of the story is that we were connecting during the chaos of the holidays and remembering the reason for the season. I think we earned an A+.
Day 16: Scripture Reading & Candle Lighting
Day 17: Create/Buy an ornament that symbolizes 2012 (I had a great idea, but wasn’t able to find the supplies to pull it off)
Day 18: Make Snowflakes and write what we’re thankful for.
Day 19: Enjoy Hot Cocoa & Marshmallows. I even made us Paleo Marshmallows to enjoy. And boy did we!
Day 20: Dance to our favorite Christmas song.
Day 21: Go Ice Skating (What a blast! We had never done this together!)
Day 22: Stocking Stuffer Challenge (1 store, a set amount of time and money. GO!)
Day 23: Scripture Reading & Candle Lighting ( We did this with our dear friends the Kaetzel’s!)
Day 24: Attend Christmas Eve Service at church (This was really nice and we even had some friends join us!)
Day 25: Celebrate Jesus’ birth
