Here are the kiddos after decorating the Christmas tree last week:
All snuggled up watching our new favorite french show that teaches us how things work in france (for example how potatoes grow, how candies are made)
The girls opening their first advent gift, which wasn't my original plan, but I decided to wrap a different small gift, activity (make cookies for example), video, book, etc. for each day of advent. We do that in addition to reading a Desiring God advent reading every night by the tree. Oh, the gifts and activities are almost all courtesy of my parents who sent a huge box of goodies...silly and practical last week...thanks!
The first gift they opened were two sticker workbooks: mickey and princess. They were pretty excited!
