If you'll remember from my Friday post I mentioned that the boys elf treat for the day was ice cream. On Friday night we drove into town for supper and afterwards they both got an ice cream cone to enjoy. We ate at McDonald's in Chiquimula. They had a choice between a sundae and a cone and they both chose cones. It was messy, messy, messy, but they sure enjoyed it!
Cruz, Ben, and Jingles
Most of Saturday was cloudy, cool, and a little drizzly. We spent the day at home. We colored, played with playdough, played Uno (which I have discovered is a great way to review colors and numbers with Cruz), and watched movies. I cooked a meatloaf, homemade cheesy mashed potatoes, and green beans for lunch. We ate and then the boys hibernated for most of the afternoon, ha.
When they got up we made a last minute decision to go back into town to visit the Christmas light display at the Central Park in Chiquimula.

The boys elf treat for Sunday was these red Christmas shaped Jello jigglers.

David taught Bible study in the village of Nearar on Sunday morning. That evening we took the boys to see lights in nearby Jocotan.
They like this nativity scene. Cruz was pretending to be a soldier and protecting Mary and Joseph.
Ben snapped this picture of us.

oh how I love these two!
Afterwards we watched Veggie Tales "The Toy That Saved Christmas" before putting these two rowdy ones to bed. Can you believe it's only ten days left until Christmas? The season is passing by so quickly. It will be over before you know it so enjoy it while you can. We are certainly trying to do just that!
