Christmas Countdown 2011

We are back on the Blog! I would like to give a shout out to Greta! Thank you for your patience. :) We have had months of change so the Blog has suffered! But, now it is Christmas time and posting on the Blog is a good idea. Here we have our Countdown to Christmas chart all ready to go for another year. Emily was hesitant about being in the picture so her dad had to administer some persuasion. The kids and I finished the work on the chart and then their dad quickly wrote the surprise under day one while they hid in the basement. Alise was the lucky on to pull of day one. Lucky for them it was their dad that wrote the surprise for today because I would have written "Each kid gets 5 m&ms" and that would have been fine. But, instead they got to go to Dairy Queen with dad.

Coming up we have quite a large weekend. Luke turns 9 years old on Sunday. We are having a few of his friends over on Saturday after Christmas program practice of which I am helping to direct. Then on Sunday is our Church Christmas open house at our home. I love this time of year!

How many days to Christmas
Play a game and see
Remember Christmas is Jesus' birthday
He came for you and me

These are the words we always had on our chart.
