Thoughtful Friday...

"I'm as happy as a tornado in a trailer park!" -Mater (from Cars)

It's currently 9˚ here. Yes, you read that right. 9˚. For my Celsius friends that's -12˚. Which is darn cold! We're going for a high of 26˚ today. Wooo Whooo!

I don't think we'll be playing outside today. Especially since O is in just a diaper. Any ideas for fun activities with a 2 1/2 year old would be greatly appreciated. He's really into videos and TV lately and we need to get out of that mode!

Also, I'm planning to make an Advent Activity calendar so any ideas you have for fun, thoughtful, nice activities for Advent... please share. I will make a list of them and share once I have a bunch.

Have a great Friday!

You could always make another hand turkey. That ate up a whole hour yesterday :)

I'm looking forward to seeing your projects! Stay inside...make some hot chocolate or coffee. Maybe Owen can do some coloring/drawing? That's fun on a cold day...

Oooh, I'm one of your celsius friends and THAT is cold. It only got to -2 (in the shade) here today. I hope you found something to do! With my boys? Mini sticks were perfect - crafts, not so much. Good luck!

I like mater!
I like the advent calendar that Ali has on her website from last year, the one with the boxes. Maybe you can give that one a try.

BTW, I left you something on my blog :)

That is REALLY cold! It's cold here, but not THAT cold!

Advent calendars like Noelia suggested are a great idea. You could also make a paper chain and write a verse or something on each. I also love the idea of reading a Christmas story or poem every night. Maybe you could put 25 titles in a jar and Owen could draw one out to read each evening.

When our daughter was a bit older than your son, we lit candles on an advent wreath each Sunday of advent. We had readings to go with each candle. That was a wonderful experience.
