Third Day of Advent 2012

We got a late start on family circle as I was trying to get all the laminating done so the girls could help me cut and punch for our pre-schoolers tomorrow while I read. ::grin:: Michael is working noon - midnight for the current exercise. 

Yuuki loves family circle

We had a great discussion as we continued our look at names - why they are significant and specifically the names of Jesus. Tonight....

We discussed what we look for in a friend, what makes a good friend and a not-so-good friend...and how Jesus is the perfect fact Matt. 11 says he was the "friend of sinners"... we love that. Isn't it comforting to know that even if you really blow it with Jesus, He is a friend who will forgive and stick close by, He's there when you move and there is no one nearby to befriend....

Nolan pulled out clue number 3, "Let sleeping dogs lie." How did Michael KNOW Yuuki would be sleeping there as we read the clue.  Arielle and Nolan wanted to go right for Yuuki's chair....but I wouldn't let them and so the younger two raced up the stairs to check out all of Yuuki's favorite sleeping spots..... They finally zeroed in on the princess chair in the living room - but Yuuki didn't really want to get up for them! 

Pick Up Sticks
 We had a fun time playing "just two" games....I have never seen such concentration during this game.....I promised to play again tomorrow.

The kids are in bed. Michael will be home in 3 hours. I've got my PCOC stuff all together. I think it's time to read...or maybe watch an episode of Monk - but then what will I do when I run out of them for workout entertainment. ::snort:: 

Choosing Joy!
