We've done a lot of advent activities around here. I posted the first week here. The rest of the month's activities are in this post. Some I didn't take pictures. Some I only captured one picture. Some I captured about fifty. So, here you go...the mother load of advent post.
We made a shepherd candy cane picture.
We wrote a letter to Santa.
We mailed that letter.
|Whoops! My camera was on the wrong setting....sad day! This was the only shot of him putting it in the mailbox.|
|So, I switched the setting and had him stand in front of the mailbox instead.|
|Last year when we did this it was raining. This year...snow!|
And we got a letter back! Whoever collects the letters from this mailbox writes letters back to the kids. It was an exciting day when he got a letter back from Santa!
We visited Santa.
Here's the video we took. He was a little timid and shy.
We made sugar cookie cut-outs.
|This is the only picture I got of this whole process. I'm still not great at getting the frosting right, but they were yummy!|
Cooper made snowflakes. Sarah and Bronson did this with Cooper while Andrew and I were out celebrating our anniversary.
We mailed cards to family.
Cooper put stickers on the back. He chose space theme and smiley faces. Now you know why there's an astronaut on your Christmas card. Sorry for the un-themed confusion.
We made lego Christmas pictures.
|From left to right: Santa's house, Rudolph (minus a red nose), a wreath, a candy cane, a Christmas tree, and an ornament. He made the wreath and Santa's house on his own with no help.|
|It was warm enough this day that all we needed were long sleeves and a sweater.|
|There were a lot of people and the lines were really long. So, this is how we entertained ourselves.|
|Cooper said his favorite part of the night was riding this train.|
We made rice crispy treat gingerbread men. I also saved these cut-out shapes for us to decorate for Santa.
We will be at church most of this afternoon. Andrew's already there. When he gets home, we will eat dinner and drive around to look at Christmas lights.
