It is about time for an update!

This week has been so fun! 
We have started to explore how different countries and 
cultures celebrate Christmas. 

I love to travel, so I told my kids that each day this week, 
we would be "going" to a new country. 

We made Passports...

They get a stamp after each country visit.

Discussed traditions...

Las Posadas
Yule Log
St. Lucy's Day
Father Christmas
etc, etc, etc

Sampled some treats...

Swiss Rolls as Yule Logs

Cinnamon Rolls for St. Lucia
(store bought of course!)

Gingerbread Men for Germany

and made some crafts.

I really enjoying hearing them say things like:

"Remember when we went to France and saw the Eiffel Tower?"

"When we were in Mexico, I think I lost my easer."

Their imaginations and excitement for Christmas is contagious.

It has definitely made this time of year a little more special for me :)

Oh by the way...

T minus 8 days until I will be sitting riiiiiight about here.

Can't come soon enough :)

Happy Holidays, everybody!
