This week has been so busy and a bit overwhelming to me, if I am being completely honest. I have a ton on my plate and feel like there isn't enough time to get everything done. Anyone else feel this way? We have our Waterways annual holiday party this Saturday (local WMS peeps I hope to see you there! :) And lots to do for that as well as other things now…SO, today I thought it was completely fitting that our Advent activity was to hear about the birth of Jesus. He is, after all, the real reason for the season. So this was as much for me as it was for my boys.
Instead of reading the books we have about Jesus' birth or even reading from my Bible, which I considered doing, I found some cute and short cartoons on YouTube that we watched. The kids enjoyed it. I thought this was the best one of the 3 we saw.
We were able to put it on the TV so they could watch it. I am so impressed with my technology challenged self that I was able to figure that out! lol
The kids wanted hot cocoa while we watched so I brewed some up with almond milk and this tasty and healthy Bavarian Cocoa meal shake. Yum!! It is seriously the best cocoa I have ever had and tons of nutrients for the kiddos too.
They insisted on having all of their animals around to watch with them. :)
So after spending some time on my Good Morning Girls Bible study today and watching this with the kids and talking about it after, my to do list suddenly feels a lot more manageable. Amazing how that works. :)
What activities did you do today? Are you staying stress-free this season?
Thanks for reading! Have a great day!!
