ADVENTure Box

 We've been having a lot of fun this Advent Season with our ADVENTure box.  Each night we open the box to find some "gift", read part of the Christmas story, and do some kind of activity.  The last couple of days we've been acting out the part of the shepherds and the Magi.  We did this last year, but are much more whole hearted about it this year, and I think we're all enjoying it a lot more, and much more thoughtful about the real reason we celebrate Christmas, the birth of the King!

I love the sheep Campbell is holding! 


 On the night we talked about the Magi we improvised a Dutch Epiphany tradition and had the kids sing a Christmas song and then we shared some banket together.

 Fake it 'till you make it boys!  Someday you'll like banket!
