Mondays, as we get closer to Christmas and further along in Advent get more and more red and green and festive. This year I am doing a combination of secular and religious worksheets, books and shows. So much colouring!
Our storytime has continued as well. The boys are reading (Emanuel included) to each other and myself whatever they want but TRINITY’s books are all Christmas and all fun!
All week actually
We also did our yearly page from Activity Village – What we like about Christmas!
And later in the day – special cookie making time with Daddy!! Mommy and Daddy had an anime date with a new/old Facebook friend, his daughters and another couple. So of course I wanted to bring one of our homemade goodies… SUGAR COOKIES!
I just realized I got my timeline wrong – on the last entry (HERE) I said we DECORATED the tree… when in actuality we ASSEMBLED the tree and flared out the branches. TODAY we put our Canadian ornaments out on display and it was so much fun!!!!!
Of course on Tuesday it was time to see Santa… something you can relive HERE.
Wednesday we reflected on our visit with Santa in our journals.
The boys also reflected on what Christmas means to them in this Activity Village printable (link for their site on right, just look up Christmas… they have TONS!).
We also made a wreath (hands) and bow (Echo’s feet) with the kids.
The kids worked with Daddy on the NEXT step of cookie making – making the icing.
And Nana found Trinity a great deal on a VERY appropriate winter jacket that allows us to hand Echo down Trinity’s old purple one (loose but usable).
Of course we had to keep making cards as well. Mommy hands off!
We ended the work week with more worksheets…
We even had a workbook completion!
One week closer to Christmas!!! And don’t forget anime night at a dear Facebook friends’ place on the 13th. It was so fun to meet Keith in person!
