Christmas Advent: Couples Style

This is SO last minute, and I haven't taken pictures of my completed advent, but I thought I'd share it anyway in case anyone is looking for advent ideas to do with your spouse. I tried to make most "kid less" activities that are easy and fun and should help strengthen your marriage. I am excited to have something to do with my sweetheart and count down to Christmas as well.

Here are my activity ideas, if you're interested.

Thanksgiving Sound Shopping

One more Turkey Day preschool activity:
A wonderful place to find literacy ideas.

*I don't know why people can't download this. I changed my sharing setting in Google documents. You can try that to see if it helped. If not, I'm not sure what the problem is. The link is working for me.

Thanksgiving Guess Who

I found these cute graphics at letteringdelights.com and had to make one more Thanksgiving game.

Here is a better explanation of the Guess Who game rules, if anyone needs them.

Thanksgiving Games

Here a few Thanksgiving games I put together. I won't be posting a Thanksgiving Day lesson plan because:
#1. There will be millions created by other people (why recreate the wheel, right?)
#2. I already have some activities I am doing with the girls.

I did, however, put together a few easy games if anyone is interested.
I love this activity from Family Fun, so I modified it using turkeys rather than squirrels.

I'm having trouble with this link. I'll try to fix it later.
*Edit* I can't get the Don't Eat Tom game to upload completely. If you'd like a copy, I can email it to you.

2010 Family Halloween Dinner

We celebrated Halloween with our traditional holiday dinner. This year we themed it around monsters. The girls helped me make the decorations and everyone helped with the food. The most fun was monster mashing in our monster feet.
Favorite things: 
The Watermelon Monster
Monster Sandwiches eating the carrots
Eyeballs in our soup
Our pom pom monster garland
Great dance moves!
