25 Days of Christmas: Day one
I said I wasn’t going to blog about our 25 Days, but I have a feeling I am going to find it hard to resist. I won’t be blogging every day – just here and there. I don’t want to add anymore stress to my life this month and I don’t think anyone really wants to hear Every Single Detail of Our Lives.
So today was day one! The girls left for school without opening their envelope, which was fine because I had to switch it out for something else at the last minute. Also, now that they’re older, I’m going to rewrite the activites so they’re more like riddles. I want to keep them guessing.
Anyway, I thought I’d make it easy on myself and ease into our advent activities this year with a special after-dinner treat for the girls. They had a whole cup of mini-marshmallows (with some homemade hot chocolate poured on top) as well as a gingerbread man I bought from Second Cup today. He tasted as good as he looks.
This post is part of our 2010 Family Advent, a.k.a 25 Days of Christmas. You can read more about that here.
