Family Night

Need a fun FHE idea? This week we had a fun little family night. We did a lesson with the boys about the Savior's birth. We read them Luke 2 and I have a little Nativity set that we let them play with. We mostly tried to point out where the baby Jesus was and reminded the boys that He is our Savior. I don't know how much really sank in, but we'll be talking about this all month so here's hoping!

Anyhow, our fun little activity at the end was to decorate Daddy as a human Christmas tree! We wrapped Justin up and the boys just loved seeing things stick to him! All these decorations are really old so a lot didn't hold up too well, but you get the idea. I, personally, love the bow on top of Justin's head. He was a good sport to do this and let me take pictures of him!

That is hilarious! Maybe I should let our nursery kids do that to Zebb...sometimes i find it hard to teach little kids like that but i know thats where it all starts alot of times our lessons in nursery only last at the most 3minutes but i hope they are learning something cuz any longer than that they are off in LaLa land or something....
