NinthSo, this was the day that I took the kids to go see Santa as soon as I got off of work. We didn't get home until almost 8:00pm. Therefore, I don't remember what they received from their advent door. I think it was more chocolate coal and Preston was upset that I was repeating gifts. (Hey! I took you to go see Santa, be happy with your coal!!)
(Sorry, had to cover up the school shirts with hearts.)
On the tenth day of Christmas the elves gave to thee, chocolate covered Santa marshmallows. To which the boys shoved the whole thing in their mouths. They looked like chipmunks!
(Lucas looks like he's in mid sneeze.)
On the eleventh day of Christmas the elves gave to thee, bubblegum in a cute penguin container. Now Luke is "grounded" from bubblegum (because he spread it all over his play grill), but I made an exception this time.
Twelfth, Thirteenth, Fourteenth, and Fifteenth
The kids weren't home Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. So, they had a lot of doors to open last night and here is what they received:
You can pick all these up at Party City. I've had more fun finding little cheap toys to fit in the doors, then they have had receiving them...almost....
Luke had WAY too much fun with his stamp. He said, "Mom, I look like Dad!" He thought the stamps looked like tattoos. Such a silly boy.
Tonight I have something special planned. It is one of my favorite things to do around Christmas time. Can you guess what it is? Here's a clue:
Their door will have nothing but a piece of paper saying "look on the table" in it. It's not a huge surprise since the kids were with me when I bought it, but I really don't think they were paying close attention. I'm going to be looking forward to going home and making it all day!
What is your favorite Christmas tradition?
