Sorry. I got a bit distracted this week because Brad is on vacation and we went away for a couple of days. But we've been doing our best to keep up with the advent calendar, and I'll continue to post what we've been doing.
It just so happened that we got a bit of snow on the ground last week. That day the activity was hot chocolate made special for you. So, Brad bundled Micah up and took him out in the snow. When they came back in we made "moderately warm" chocolate for Micah and hot chocolate for us. We even put marshmallows in it, which Micah really liked!
Day 8 was to read a new Christmas book. Luckily, we checked out some Christmas books from the library not too long ago. So, we picked out a book, sat on the couch and started reading. Micah usually loves being read to, but I think he was a little curious and so kept trying to get down. He wanted to take the book with him and we were worried he'd rip the pages. We don't often get to sit all three of us and just relax so that was really nice. And I'm sure we'll be reading lot of Christmas books in the days to come!
