Advent Lapbooks

I had the kids start their Advent lapbooks yesterday. These are great! They'll have something to do every day of Advent plus weekly. There is a lot of information here on each Sunday of Advent, the Christmas symbols, the Jesse Tree, the Advent Calendar, Advent reflections writings, the O Antiphons, and the feast days in Advent.

I splurged and bought the multi-colored file folders to get the purple ones. I'm glad I did...sure beats the plain manila file folder.:)

Here are a few pics of our Thanksgiving. There aren't many but these are cute.

Christmas Cheer!

Here are the Christmas cookies I made yesterday. I am equally excited about these! The packaging is fun, too. Most of the cookies each get a sealed cellophane bag with a tiny ribbon accent. I boxed up a few half dozens as well that will be decorated with ribbon and ingredient and "You Smart Cookie" labels.

Fun, Fun!

Fall Cookies

I am so excited about these cookies! We are donating these for a craft/bake sale this weekend and half are done. The other half will be Christmas cookies. Who knows what those will look like! For the time being, these fall leaves and acorns are finished!! The first pic shows the acorns better, and the second shows the colors better. Oh, well.:( I bake...I don't photograph.:(
