I have to say there is something so beautiful about the first few snowfalls. Everything is pure and crisp and clean. I went outside this morning to play in the snow with my daycare boys and we had a blast.
The boys had the best time running and sliding and playing in the snow. it is so awesome to see the world through little one's eyes.
We also started a new tradition yesterday. At the daycare and at home with our own boys, we started an advent calendar to count down to the birth of Lord, but instead of just a chocolate, we all have to do something together.
I have 25 envelopes, numbered 1-25 hanging on the mantle for our family and 20 envelopes hanging in the dining room for the daycare. Every morning before all the daycare kids get up and after all my boys are up, we open the envelope of the day and after dinner, we all as a family participate in that activity. For the daycare, we open the envelope after all the children are home from school. So far, it has been fantastic. I will let you know how it goes.
Have a great day!
