The last of our advent activities

Before writing up a post about our Christmas, I wanted to finish up our advent activities. Things kinda fell off after the 20th when Little K got Scarlet Fever (strep throat + rash) and normally we would have had more good times with friends in the days leading up to Christmas. Instead we were mostly house-bound.

December 19th - Toilet paper roll reindeer craft
Little K didn't want antleers and Little J wanted 4 eyes. Who am I to argue?

Reindeer, kinda.

December 20th - Party with friends!
This was Little C's annual Christmas party. Little J had a great time but Little K basically sat on my lap the entire time, feeling awful.

Party time!

December 21st - Nothing Christmassy.
You know when you have sick kids and you put them in the bath to kill time? That's exactly what I did and this is the only picture I took all day. The kids love it though and giggle every time they see it.

My poor sick girl.

December 22nd - Doctor's visit.
Of course our family doctor is alreay off on holidays. We spent the entire morning at the walk-in clinic and at the grocery store waiting for Little K's prescription to be filled. Thank goodness for my phone that kept them occupied after 4 hours.

Goofing off waiting for the doctor.

December 23rd - Nothing Christmassy.
We were just taking it easy all day and again, this is the only picture I took. Eight pancakes ready for little tummies.

We love our grill.

December 24th - Open 1 present (Christmas PJs)
As with tradition we gave the kids one present to open after dinner on Christmas Eve. They both love their new pajamas.
