Even though I haven't been writing about it, we have been opening our advent activities every day ang *trying* to do the activity. I'm a little bit behind, but we're still having fun.
The first day our activity was to take a wagon ride through the lights in Orland Park. As soon as Brad got home from work that night, we bundled up in the car and headed out to Orland. Micah decided he wanted to walk rather than ride in the wagon. That proved to be a bit of a challenge, as it does any time we let Micah walk free. But we made it to the end of the path nonetheless. And then we put him in the wagon for the walk back. He wasn't too happy about it, but we were tired of chasing him around. He was fascinated by the lights, however, and had to walk up to every single one and comment, "Ooooo! Wow!" It was so cute!
Day 2's activity was to decorate the windows in Micah's bedroom. I wanted to buy some Christmas window clings that he could put on the windows, knowing he would take them off every day. However, they only had the gel clings. Micah had a lot of fun trying to put them in his mouth. So, after about one minute we had to move the clings up to the top part of his window...and to the guest room window (once again up high as he tries to get them from that window, too).
Stay tuned for more of our advent activities!
