Christmas festivities

Over the past week we have been doing a few Christmasy things to get into the holiday spirit. Eden had her pre-Kindy Christmas concert where they sang songs like Aussie Jingle Bells and were generally adorable.

We made a gingerbread house to bring to church for the kids Christmas show.

Tonight we walked around the suburb looking for Christmas lights. There are a few roads in our suburb that are known for their lights and they didn’t disappoint.

Very aussie lights, notice the white boomer on the roof. Apparently 6 white boomers (male kangaroos) pull santa's sleigh in Australia.

Eden and Kate wrapped in blankets...it was a little chilly. Every house on the street had lights up!

We have also set up our tree and this year we are doing Truth in the Tinsel, which consists of a craft, bible passage and discussion every day with the purpose of focusing the Christmas season on Jesus rather then Santa. If you follow me on instagram you will see more photos of our crafts. We’re very excited about Christmas this year as both girls are a great age for the excitement and magic of the season!
