Week in Review Dec 2nd

We were able to get our tree and other CHRISTmas decorations up.
This nativity set was my mothers when I was a child.  I remember it was a special set that we were allowed to touch and play with, while we still knew to be very careful with it and that it was very fragile.  
I now have this set for me, and got my children The Little People Nativity Set.  That one is their set to play with.

We also began our Christmas Study.   Which has been our favorite resource this week.

Each child had a job while we made our scripture chain.
Emily cut out the scriptures and Katey glued them.  P1040346P1040339
Tommy was the actual chain maker and Tyler passed out snacks.  P1040345P1040367

We also made Krispy Treat Christmas Tress. 

We also decided to try an experiment.  We wanted to see if we could make hot air rise.  I filled a garbage sack up with air using a blow dryer.  I took it outside where it was freezing and I thought it would float.  I was wrong.  I ended up throwing it up into the air just to get it to go high.  We will definitely be trying this experiment again, differently.  
The kids are entering Gingerbread Houses in a local competition here.  So we also got started on mixing up our gingerbread.
