I have quickly discovered that one of the kids favorite things about our daily Advent reading are the snacks that are served. I originally served the snacks to keep their hands occupied during the time we were reading from the book.
You know, so they couldn't be poking or hitting a sibling next to them while they were suppose to be listening. Not that anything like that every happens at our house. Ahem.
Anyway, I am quickly running out of ideas for special snacks. Last night we had a little mix of everything that I had served over the past few days. Here's what it looked like.
We had Kettle corn, cheddar cheese popcorn, ginger bread cookies, and one Reece's peanut butter cup. Whew. It was a big hit.
So, my smart and creative friends out there, if you have any suggestions for fun snacks to keep the kids hands busy I would greatly appreciate it.
On another note, it is 3:00 a.m. and I am up blogging because....IT IS RAINING OUTSIDE! Yeah!!!!
The hot air is gone and it is nice and cool. I must say you were a stingy bunch in your comments yesterday. No one wanted to give me some of their snow. Didn't your mothers ever teach you to share?
Well, its all right. I totally understand. I wouldn't want to share either.
I'm off to visit some of your blogs before I force myself to go back to sleep. For the time being though, I am up and enjoying the sound of the rain. I love that sound.
Have a Blessed day today.
