Advent- Days 8-11 2017

Heeeeeeeeyyyyy friends! I have had activities/events back to back all Friday until today. I’m not complaining, it’s been mostly really fun stuff-just crazy busy. For our advent on Friday, we went through the Chick-Fil-A drive-thru for lunch. It was sooooo good. But, I forgot to take any pictures, so you’ll just have to take my word for it.

Saturday morning, Blake helped a friend move, so the girls and I stayed in and had a hot chocolate date (did I mention that it was snowing?! #perfect). I found some really cute tiny mugs at Target for the girls and I hid them behind the tree for them to find. While I washed the mugs and heated up the water, Lane cleared out the family room, and laid out our Gathre mat. She also grabbed all the chocolate we had in the fridge so we could have some of that. They must have really enjoyed last year’s hot chocolate party, because they definitely wanted to recreate it this year.


Sunday night, we drove through our favorite neighborhood this time of year to look at Christmas lights. The girls were super tired (Rae fell asleep long before we even got there), so we didn’t spend much time doing it, but it was lots of fun anyway. Once again, I forgot the pictures, so you’ll have to take my word for it.

Today, I hid some window clings that my mom had gotten for the girls. Honestly, those things really gross me out, but, they’re super simple and easy, and the girls LOVE them. They spent lots of time this morning putting them on our doors downstairs. And then they spent lots of time throughout the rest of the day rearranging them. 😂


Advent-Day 7 2017


Today is always one of my favorite days-A COLORING DATE! The Peanuts coloring books are always my fave, and they usually have them in the Target dollar spot. I grabbed 4 of them this year-one for each of us girls. 🙂 I hid them under the tree skirt for them to find. Daddy even joined in on the fun this year.
