Advent 16 days to go-No ants at our picnic? Yes, there are
Eat your heart out Ashlea...I just watched the Christmas episode of Community before it aired. (If you are reading in a reader, visit my blog for a snippet of the episode.)
I love Community. I think my favorite was the paintball episode. But really, how do you rank geniusness?
This episode is stop animation, though not clay-mation, according to Ahbed. The premise is that Ahbed is having an hallucination that they are animated. There is singing and all kinds of Christmas themed elements.
My favorite scene is the one where Shirley is turned into a baby doll.
Funny, huh? The animation is right on.
Admittedly, this isn't one of the funnier episodes I have watched. But it is a must see if you are a Community fan. The relationship between Ahbed and Troy is always funny as they spew pop culture references.
If you've never seen Community, what are you waiting for? This is one of the best shows on TV. NO, I'm not getting paid to say this. YES, I love this show.
It comes on NBC, Thursday Dec 9 at 7:00 PM central.
Picnic in the living room.
For some reason my kids really enjoy having a picnic in the living room. We are going to have hot dogs, chips and juice boxes.
I love this one. Should have seen the look on one certain child's face when we drew this. She hates not complaining. In other words, she loves to complain.
Coloring a nativity scene and then gluing them on to toilet paper rolls. I found one and printed it and now I cannot find it again. I'm sorry to be of no help there.
I've got two weeks to make a homemade gift for the person whose name I drew. I can't say as my husband reads this blog regularly and it could be him or might not be. Either way he can't know. It's a secret homemade gift.
This week the kids get to open one present as part of our Advent activities. It's suppose to remind them how Mary waited for Jesus and something else or other that I don't remember.
I buy Christmas themed gifts:
Kati-nutcracker (not a real one, but a toy kind thingy one)
Jerusha-evidently a snowman since that is what I found.
This year I wasn't able to find those things here so I made do...and Jerusha got a snowman. They can decorate for Christmas with these things. And their Mimi has bought them all ornaments in previous years. So they will have a lot when they have their first house.
What are you doing? How are your holidays coming together?
