the birthday girl...and advent fun

beatrice eleanora hope is 6 years old today.

how can this be?

and why does it hurt so much?


moving on.
we are totally one of "those" tradition families. and we love it. i so pray that the time we give to one another will make its way into the hearts and memories of elliott and beatrice. one of our more favorite traditions is an "advent activity garland".

each evening during family devotions, with great anticipation, the kids pull out that day's card...and we all get to enjoy the activity!

last nite, with the kids wearing their fleece footies, we headed out to mcdonald's, and shared a tasty bedtime snack! cheap fun!

tonite, it was paper crafting! (i love this one!)

i'll get photos once they're glittered.

happy day!

  1. What a great family tradition and fun stuff to do each and every day. I need to get my kids to make some snowflakes. Look forward to seeing the ones your family made. Happy birthday to Beatrice! You are sighing now -- wait until she is 16. :) Blessings to you and yours, Tammy
