Christmas is such a fun holiday and as our girls get older just gets more fun.  We had greatly enjoyed an advent devotional and activities that our children’s minister had put together.  Each night before bed we would read scripture and then have a little discussion about it and it is absolutely amazing when you think they don’t quite get and you are trying to put it in simpler terms for them, but then they surprise you and they totally get it.  I of course am talking about our almost FIVE year old.  She is just always surprising us.  One thing that we ended up doing that the girls loved was decorate giant ginger bread men.

The girls were given a kit and they loved decorating their ginger bread man.  Who doesn’t like icing and candy?  Well, we all know Addie has a sweet tooth.  I think she ate more than really decorated.

The cookie was as big as Sofia’s head.  She had to eat an arm as soon as she was done decorating.

We certainly had a blessed Christmas and I do have more Christmas fun to share, but I am going to leave it for another post though.
