4th day of celebrating Christmas

begins! Today's festivities are not totally firmed up.  Tuesdays are crazy days here, very crazy.  2 1/2 hours of therapy in the morning for one child (with the half hour appointment starting at 10 or 10:30 depending upon week), Tae Kwon Doe, Scouts, meals, and oh yeah that thing called an education.

Tuesdays, may turn into an easy celebration of sorts, not a lot of time required like a short movie or something easy to bake.  Today is likely to be a short movie like "Frosty the Snowman" or "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer".  We'll sprinkle in some Christmas Mad Libs, which I was able to locate yesterday and continued reading of "The Christmas Carol" ~ assuming my voice holds out.  Might just firm up a short wish list too.  We're trying to teach the boys that Christmas should not be about the amount of stuff you get, but the celebration of Christ.

What is making Christmas special at your house today?

P.S. I'll post, in the comments, the mad lib we did and movie watched later today.

  1. We ended up doing 3 different Christmas themed mad libs today. Here's one of them:

    Twelve Days of Christmas Part 1:

    On the first day of Christmas,
    My true box gave to me
    A partridge in a building tree.

    On the second underwear of Christmas,
    My yellow love gave to me
    Two turtle doves
    And a glass in a green tree.

    On the third day of Christmas,
    My pink store gave to me
    Three French hens,
    Two turtle lightbulbs,
    And a partridge in a purple zebra.

    Not sure when we'll get to Part Two! And so it was a crazy day and not a whole lot of Christmas stuff happening. Wish lists were started, quick targeted shopping on our part, and that's about it.
