Hi Fit Moms-
The Christmas season is in full swing for our family. What about you? A week ago, we participated in our first cookie swap and craft party. This weekend we went to see The Nutcracker Ballet. We have a bunch of holiday activities coming our way this week as well. Starting with a Blogger Holiday Cookie Swap I’m participating in. A bunch of bloggers, including me, participated in the writing of a holiday cookie eCoobook. We will all send a batch of our contributions to another blogger on December 12th! It’s sort of like a Secret Santa. We don’t know what blogger is sending us cookies. Stay tuned for the eCookbook!
This week my kids and I will also be getting ready for our own Annual Cookie Swap. What I love about our cookie swap is that the kids all bring money to donate to World Vision. They look through the World Vision gift guide as a group. After we tally up how much money they raised, they buy things like ducks, chickens, and goats for people who need a gift that keeps on giving. It’s the highlight of their year!
Speaking of gifts… We have a gift for one lucky reader! There’s a giveaway going on right now that ends Thursday at midnight. So, swing by our giveaway page for your chance to win Kimochis now! It’ll make a cute stocking stuffer!
Speaking of cute… I wanted to mention that my kids are having a BLAST doing the Truth in the Tinsel ebook! They are learning the Christmas Story piece by piece, like a mystery. Each day they get a little clue to what the day’s story will be. After we read the scriptures they make their own Christmas ornaments! The kids love making their own ornaments and putting them on their mini-trees. The picture at the top of the post is their pregnant Mary and Elizabeth ornaments. Aren’t they cute! You say you wish you could do this with your kids? Well, you are NOT too late! I LOVE the fact that they have abbreviated lesson plans for those who can’t do one every day, or for late comers. You can join in anytime! There’s still time to do Truth in the Tinsel with your kids this season. Buy yours by clicking here!
