Nativity role-play masks

This year our kids Christmas program is called Imagine.  It focuses on how kids love to role play the stoies.  Costumes are simple just masks or head pieces.  Truthfully it is simple cause there is not a lot of time to pull off something big.  But small or big it will be great cause the story being told! 
While getting ready I have been looking high and low for simple sheep and cow masks.  And I finally found them.  I found them at Sparklebox.  I have use them many tiems, they are a UK based web page with awesome resources for teachers and hoemschoolers.
As I was looking Robby was complaining that there were no "speaking parts" and thinks we should created a Christmas kids club to work on next years program.  Now that is one thinking ahead kid and maybe we will do that!!

Bible Study Challenge

I love blogs, and watching what others are doing.  I love how some are doing these different day blogs, like meal Mondays or organization of Tuesdays.  And as I blog more and research I am learning about buttons and  how to bring adds to your pages, and how to a lot of things I didnt know about.  But one thing caught my eye today.  It was this Luke in 26 days.  If some remember I did John in 21 days last year!  That was to get ready for Advent.  This seems perfect for me.  So I am taking the challenge.  Come along with me. 
Luke with MomsToolbox

They use the Soap Method.

Pray, asking God to guide me through His Word and clear my mind of distractions.
Read the passage and find the one thing I believe God is telling me that morning. Then I journal about it using the acrostic SOAP as a guide.
S: Scripture-Write the ONE scripture that I feel God is using to speak to me in today’s reading
O: Observation-What might He be telling me with that scripture?
A: Application-How can I apply it to my life?
P: Prayer-What is my prayer to ask God in helping me to make that application?

So I will be starting tomorrow, come along with me!

On the 3rd-9th days of Advent

LOL what happened? (Besides not blogging!:)) Lots!   We got our Christmas tree up, my fireplace is decorated (see where I sunk in advent?)  We have sung lots of Christmas songs, worked on christmas cards and done a lot of cleaning up. And I have spent way too much time on Pinterest!  Wow, the ideas are to start putting some together!  I have the ribbon ready for a Christmas tree for AnnieQ.  I had the ribbon, just need a simple shirt.   used one of the ideas for hanging my stockings.  My kids are painting their own manger scenes.  Robby has an Lego advent calendar (Yes I broke) and the two little ones Advent manger stickers.  We also have the big new one with the different pieces.  We have been watching Christmas movies and reading our books.  We have not our advent candles yet to light, I finally have my wreath, just have to get my candles.
I think we are on a good path toward celebrating the birth of Christ....but I have soooo much more to do!  This has been the first Christmas I have been really into and my sister and brother in law are coming for Christmas morning, which is the first time I have woken up with my family on Christmas in a long time!
So onward we go!
