Advent Calendar Week 4

December 16:  Mosaic Ice Skating

View video of Loren skating around.  ;-)

December 17:  English Fellowship Church Staff/Volunteer Christmas Dinner

We also watched Author Christmas for the first time.  Cute movie!

December 18:  Watched the Nutcracker Ballet!

One of the girls who comes to our Mosaic youth group was the main dancer!  She played

The ballet was marvelous.  Absolutely marvelous.  We got front row seats by her parents and she dances beautifully!

Brought back memories of my ballet dancing days.  I danced for 7 years.  Two of those years on toe shoes.  Look at this old picture.  Came home dreaming of starting it up again...

December 19:  Wrap Christmas Gifts!

I also finished the Xmas craft projects I have been putting aside. I have also done a lot of cleaning this day. We have now been completely out of hot water in our sink for a whole WEEK.  Our hot water heater decided all on his own never to heat water again.  I have been heating water on the stove to do dishes.  Can't wait for a new water heater!  Who knows when its going to come though- it seems like this particular problem about living here is taking a LONG time to fix.

Reading time with Zane:  {Day 1} in the book What God wants for Christmas.

Zane loved opening the box to find what was inside!  This day was the angel Gabriel.

Found this youtube version here:  But its much better when you have the actual boxes that your kids can open up to discover what is inside.

December 20:  Watched Elf & played games

We were very international in our game playing.  

We played Ticket to Ride Germany version:

And Dutch Blitz!

These are two of my favorite games to play!  I also like Settlers of Catan- but that will come later in the Christmas vacation days!  ;-)

Reading with Zane: {Day 2} What God wants for Christmas.

With excitement that Christmas is just 5 days away,
