Make it Monday: Fake Snow!

Make it Monday

Okay, so the weatherman’s right: there’s 0% chance of snow outside. But inside, mamas? That’s another story. Whip this up and stick it in the fridge. Your kids won’t know the difference. (Unless they try to eat it. Don’t let them try to eat it.)

Surviving Christmas Overseas

Some good thoughts here!

Removing the ‘mas’ in Christmas

My first Christmas overseas was pretty depressing. I didn’t have kids. I didn’t have a tree (I taped ornaments to the wall in a triangle). It wasn’t snowing. I couldn’t even run my lights because the power situation was pretty bad. But I felt God tugging at my heart to really consider the holiday.

If you take out the “mas” (meaning ‘more’, in this case; I know where it comes from, don’t write me angry letters), you’re left with Christ. Removed from the commercialism, removed from the cold, what was left?

Advent.

Advent still felt like home. So pull out your pipe cleaners, mamas. Here’s a plethora of advent activities, some for you, some for your kids…but all will help you remember that if that baby was swaddled, he was sweating, just like you.
