This year I found many great ideas on the internet for fun things to do with the boys for advent. One of the things we did was read The Christmas Tree Parable by Liz Curtis Higgs, and then we made our own Christmas trees using sugar cones, frosting and candy. Andrew loved eating his after he decorated it. We also wrapped up Christmas books, and had the boys unwrap one each night (I had no idea I had accumulated so many Christmas books). Some of our other activities were: making and decorating cookies, driving to look at Christmas lights, watching Christmas movies as a family, and having a movie night with our friends Michael and Lyndsay and their kids. We all enjoyed celebrating the birth of our Savior by doing things together as a family.
