books, fires and day 9

*Pulled out the Christmas books last week.  We gathered them from thrift stores and rummage sales.  They were all so excited.  Gabe loves the music ones. 

*lots of warm fires

Day 9

*We made up some love notes and stuck them on the cars in random parking lots.  Jeremiah took 2 of them to school and put them in random places in the school.  Love their participation.  I want this advent to always be something our kids participate in because I do think it helps cultivate a spirit of thankfulness and kindness during a season which can easily focus on our own personal wants.  I never want our kids to shy away from kindness.  Every morning as we drive to school I pray out loud over their day and always ask God to show them opportunities for kindness.
