Blanket Fort

When our friends visited for a few days on their way to Florida, the boys decided to make a blanket fort in the living room! They literally used every blanket in the whole house. So glad they were the first to make a fort here.

wisemen

Heard a story years ago at church about setting up the nativity. Of course the wise men aren’t there on the day of Jesus birth. They come much later, traditionally arriving on January 6th. To honor their faith in coming to worship the new king, the day after Christmas, we start moving the wise men through the house, ever closer to Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus. This year, they wound their way around the mountain mixer and over the hills of the freezer. Tomorrow, they will traverse the dessert of the living room!
