Yes, you read that right, we skipped day 14. We had some family drama and had to forgo our advent for the day. We’re doing advent to teach our kids about family and other important things during the holidays. I don’t want to force an activity and stress everyone out, that’s the opposite of what we’re going for.
Gingerbread! We do gingerbread every year. Sometimes we make gingerbread men with friends, sometimes we make gingerbread cookies, this year we made a gingerbread house.
We did our teacher gifts today. I came across this idea and thought it was perfect for us for a number of reasons:
“Can we have banana ice cream for dessert?”
This is a common question in our house. I don’t like giving my kids ice cream. It’s very high in carbohydrates and throws Jordan’s blood sugar off. Honestly, even if he didn’t have diabetes, my kids act like complete wild children after having ice cream.
