Just wanted to thank you all for your kind notes and comments on my What's Cookin' post! We are passionate about what we feed our family, aren't we?
A few things to note on the blog ~ I've updated my sidebars a bit to include many of my Advent and Christmas seasonal sharings. You'll find direct links to single posts and also a few with a compilation of links as well, so enjoy browsing through to see if anything strikes your fancy for this year :)
Also, don't miss the newly re-vamped and updated O Night Divine site for Advent and Christmas this year, it's going to prove to be the "go to" site for celebrating Advent, Christmas and all the way through to Epiphany for me!!!
The kids and I brainstormed and we think we've decided to do a Scandinavian Christmas and Lapbook this year as we are hitting on many of these themes and customs from our current WW II studies. Violet and Matthias had so much fun putting together their lapbooks, now it's the younger two boys' chance! Should be a fun and cozy time, enjoying all things Jan Brett, Astrid Lindgren and many other favorites with a Scandinavian flair!! Hope to have booklists in the side bar by the end of the weekend....Please note that I've added a sample of our Lapbook just under the new Advent and Christmas links!!
I have a new learning notes post up at Mama's Muse today :) Enjoy this next week of learning and loving with your family as we enter into Thanksgiving week! We will be busy watercoloring "thankful leaves" and cooking up some goodies! I am so grateful for beautiful and kind friends far and near! Many blessings in your weekend!
