Advent Activities: Day 6

Today we read about Mary visiting Elizabeth. Naomi liked the idea of them both having babies in their tummies, and wanted to know when I would have a baby in my tummy again. She said she's ready to help  me take care of another baby, and she had lots of practice helping take care of Nathan. Oh, and by the way, would Nathan still be a little brother, or a big brother when we have an new baby..... and on and on went the baby talk! lol That is one of the things I'm really enjoying about our daily reading, and crafts, is all the good discussion that comes out of it. The craft really helps us focus in on one part of the story.

Naomi GREATLY enjoyed making these ornaments. We painted with watercolors, and she really took her time, and did a good job. In fact she took so much time painting that I got a little bored and went and played diggers with Nathan. I was  happy she enjoyed it though!! If you can't tell from the picture the pregnant bellies actually stick out. She loved that!

She is always so proud to hang them up in the foyer. It's turned out to be the perfect place for them because we look at each one, and talk about them in sequential order almost every time we walk up the stairs. What great review without even trying!

I'm off to bed. Goodnight!
