It's the most wonderful time of the year!!
(I've been listening to that Andy Williams Christmas tune all week long!)
It is the most wonderful time of the year, but Little Man has been so sick that we really haven't left the house in the last week. The frigid temperatures have encouraged us to stay inside even longer. I tell ya... I've never been so anxious for my Little Man to feel like himself again! I've decided that dealing with a sick toddler must be similar to dealing with a teenager. Mr. Oopsey Daisy and I have been learning all kinds of new tricks and distraction methods for administering medicine.
But our decorations are up, and we are definitely enjoying our advents here in our home! Little Man loves beginning each morning with our book advent. Our Santa's beard is growing day by day, and we have plenty of other fun traditions keeping us busy here at home! I love watching the magic of Christmas unfold for Little Man... this is such a fun age!
I love seeing projects that emphasize the real meaning of Christmas... you know, putting the Christ back in Christmas! So I love that Kojo Designs created these 25 names of Jesus and used them as an advent... I would love to include this in our Christmas advent traditions somehow! Great idea!
I recently discovered a new blog called Prepared NOT Scared, and I have been blown away! You can find all sorts of amazing games with the appropriate printables. You'll love this Nativity Memory game! This would be great for a Family Night or church lesson! (While you're there, check out the fun "JINGO" (Christmas version of Bingo) or "Don't Eat the Reindeer.")
What are you working on right now?
P.S. I hope you'll join me tomorrow! I am co-hosting a Facebook chat with card designer Bonnie Marcus, sponsored by Kodak. We'll be sharing questions, tips and stories about our favorite holiday cards! We'll learn a lot from Bonnie Marcus about designing cards and also learn about the brand new Kodak kiosks in Target and Walgreen's stores. The chat will take place tomorrow, Thursday December 7th, at 6 p.m. MST. I hope you'll chat along with me on my first Facebook chat! Just "like" Kodak on Facebook and join us tomorrow evening!
I'll be chatting along with these lovely ladies:
