I have been such a slacker lately, the holidays have really been keeping my busy. But here is our advent so far, sans some images because to be honest I totally forgot to snap some!
Day 9: Make Ornaments
Well we ended up finding some really cool games at Goodwill and ended up playing games all evening.
Day 10: Do something nice for someone in the family
This one didn’t really go over as I had planned because my kids thought that by giving hugs that that would count, but it doesn’t. Needless to say we will be going back to talk about this one after the holidays.
Day 11: Laser tag and games with friends
Laser tag with friends ended up being a ton of fun, and as you can see even John go into it and played some air hockey with the kids.
Day 12: Scratch off tickets
My kids LOVE scratch off tickets, so I purchased three tickets for each kid. The only person who won was Chandler, and he won twice. It turns out that Chandler has had quite the streak of good luck lately!
Day 13: Mortal Kombat Tournament
We had to skip this one because two of the kids were acting out.
Day 14: Bake cookies and deliver to friends
Two of my kids decided that they refused to help. So Chandler and I had a blast listening to Christmas music and baking butter pecan cookies, peanut butter cookies and peppermint bark. We all packed the cookies and bark into cute bags and loaded up in the van to deliver them to friends.
As you can see our advent has been a little difficult this time, I blame it a lot of the ages of my kids. Hopefully the remaining days are much more fun!
