This year's Christmas and Advent was a wonderful time. Dand'un filled the children's days with special activities and treats. There were 24 gifts to open. Each one was something special. We had muffins to bake, cookies to cut out, gel sticks for the windows, movies to watch. Just lots of activities that she put a lot of thought into. It was really a treat for the children and for us.
We also did a few random acts of kindness for some strangers. It was a lot of fun leaving money on drink machines, buying coffee for the person in line behind us, and giving cookies to our mailman. Our favorite reaction was the middle aged gentleman at Starbucks. He was almost speechless when Annalise handed him a gift card for his coffee. It made me smile. I didn't really take any pictures because I didn't want the children to have the idea that we were doing it "for show." But, it was a real treat for me to watch them.
Okay...still more Christmas pics to add. Gingerbread house, gifts. etc...I will get them on here sometime. :)
