Okay, since its November and I’m freaking out because frankly, the last thing I remember was August 14th when we started school, everything after that’s been a blur! Ya, don’t remember a thing, except that I woke up this morning and realized that I haven’t even THOUGHT about Christmas cards! Okay, sorry about that minor freak out, I’m better now…sort of.
One thing I wanted to share that we do each December is take time off our regular curriculum and do the activities in this book:
Its so much fun, Lisa Whelchel has made 25 activities that bring our holiday back to its true meaning: Jesus! You can do 1 activity a day as a countdown, or just pick ones that look fun! I highly recommend this book!
Just so you know what you’re getting, here are some topics covered in the book:
- Advent Wreath
- The Christmas Tree
- Lights on the Tree
- Ornaments on teh Tree
- The candy cane
- The Star
- Christmas Greetings
- Outdoor lights
- The colors of Christmas
- Christmas Cards
- The 12 Days of Christmas
- Wrapping Gifts
- Giving Gifts
- Santa Claus (Who he really was!)
- Nativity Scenes
- The Wise Men
- December 25th
- Opening Presents
- Christmas Dinner
- The Christmas Story
Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
That looks neat. I'll go check it out!Oh and I'm in shock that it's November too!
, Dear Mommy, I love you with all my heart and soil . Such a sweet innocent liltte boy. I loved it so much that he mispelled soul. How precious. I have cherished that liltte letter all these years and it still brings tears to my eyes and makes my heart overjoyed when I see it or think about it, like now. Thank you for such an interesting and inspirational website. I felt like I was taking a mini vacation. I pray God’s continued blessings to you and your family. Connie Cule

we have this book also, last year I got it 10 days before Christmas and tried to rush through it, this year we will be doing every day, even if we don’t do all the crafts and such. I am also using Truth in the Tinsel.
