Since there's no place to go...
Day 3 - Make paper snowflakes & mail holiday cards to thank our troops
The kids and I stayed close to home today, enjoying some stillness after a whole day out yesterday. Everett and I made paper snowflakes (Paxton just made one, and Spencer opted out) and in between snipping and folding, he made several virtual snowflakes too. Love this site!
We also went to this site, Let's Say Thanks, to choose some cards to send to those serving overseas.
And finally, a little Everett funny to share from the day: This morning's Jesse Tree ornament was a ladder, representing Jacob's dream. I started reading the passage to them, explaining about a dream with a ladder that rose all the way to heaven. Everett's eyes lit up with recognition.
"Hey, I remember that!"
"Oh you heard about it in church?"
"Yeah..." Thinks about it some more. "No, wait. I think maybe it was on Tom and Jerry. And it was an escalator, not a ladder. But it did go all the way up to the clouds!"
I love him.
