*The kids LOVE going for walks at night with Zoe. There are lots of Christmas lights to see. I have yet to accompany them but I know I will soon. Chris said it can get interesting. :) A son who likes to run + a dog who likes to run + Christmas decorations in lawns = a small amount of chaos.
*I can't believe I have never made gingerbread men cookies. We made them the other day and they are quite fun. :)
*I finally got my act together and am doing Advent with the kids this year. I spent a long time searching for scripture verses to read each day and never found ones I thought were good plus short enough for their attention spans (I finally read somewhere about a kid's Bible that has the exact sections I needed, but it was too late). Anyway, next year I'll have those included. For this year, each day contains a fun little surprise. I've seen VERY creative ways to display your Advent, but I opted for clear bags hung on our mantel (courtesy 99 Cent store).
This morning's Advent surprise was a box of "sugar cereal". They were ELATED!!
Cameron is very into the human body and how it works. I cracked up when I was cleaning out the car and realized he had lugged our Medical Encyclopedia all the way downstairs for some reading on our car rides. :)
*It's quite possible that if you stumble into our kitchen throughout the day you might find me digging in the Cheez-it bag for the burnt ones. I like them REALLY dark. :)
