Advent - ONLY 8 days to go!!
Are all your presents bought and wrapped? You are running out of time. Naughty, naughty!
Today's advent activity:
Family Award night
OH, how we love family award night. Last years winners can be seen here.
Basically, I come up with a list of awards, enough so that I know everyone will be able to get something.
Best chef (Hey, even I get one.)
You get it.
I read all the awards, so everyone knows what to choose from. We give everyone each persons name three times...so they can only vote for that person three times. (We have to make it somewhat fair...otherwise we have a child who may not get any.)
If you win the vote you get a reward.
Go to Mimi's
Stay up 30 minutes late
Pick a video from the video store
New pair of socks
It's really fun. And it encourages the children to be really good, for a few weeks, at least.
Today's Blessing jar:
Make a meal
They had a ball with this one yesterday. Kati literally listed everything in the kitchen, whether she had the ability to make it or not. Finally, Kori decided she could heat some beans in the microwave and some leftover green beans with some toast. They loved it.
