We started our Christmas Activity Advent this week and so far it has been a blast!
Day 1: Hot chocolate
I didn’t get any photos of this night because it was a little crazy, but I serve hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows served in the cutest Santa cups ever and we had brownie cupcakes on the side.
Day 2: Family game night
We started playing LIFE, but it turns out that we didn’t have the instructions and none of us knew how to play. So we ended up playing Funny or Die, its one of our favorites anyways.
Day 3: Rootbeer floats
Since Ethan and Jayde don’t actually like rootbeer so we went to the store to and grabbed a soda of their choice, the both chose strawberry soda and of course the rest of us enjoyed a classic rootbeer float.
Day 4: S’mores
These S’mores were SO good, even though I had to bake them in the oven because it was raining outside and even because I bought those MASSIVE marshmallows and they made a huge mess. It was so funny watching everyone trying to eat these because there was just too much marshmallows, especially John because he has such a big beard he basically ended up having a marshmallow beard when it was all said and done.
Day 5: Movie night and pizza
I initially planned on just having delivery pizza at home while watching a movie, but then I decided we would do something more fun. We went to see Dumb and Dumber To (which was beyond hilarious) and followed that up with pizza from Old Chicago.
Day 6: Lunch and Renaissance fun park
We had Burger King (per the kids requests) and then went to this is a local place that has all kinds of fun stuff for the kids. They went go-carting and it was hilarious because for the first time ever Chandler was super competitive and was driving all crazy to get in the lead (video below). Then they played in the arcade, and apparently Chandler was having a lucky day because he won the jackpot on this same game THREE TIMES! It was crazy, I think I should have had bought a lottery ticket huh?
Be sure to come back and see what fun we have on our next days of our Christmas Activity Advent.
