We have had several movie nights this month watching Christmas movies. The boys have really enjoyed these snuggle nights on the couch with the Christmas tree lights sparkling. On Monday we watched Home Alone 2. They love all the "traps" that Kevin sets for the bad guys.
On Tuesday night we watched the Presidential Debate. We have watched all but one this year. Before this year I do not think I've watched one in my life. ha We have enjoyed following the race for the White House this year even though it has been a crazy one.
Do you think he enjoyed that? You bet.
I should also add- Oh the messes they will make. ha
I finally got around to baking some Christmas cookies this week. They were very delicious.
On Wednesday we had a reindeer themed day. It started with this pancake breakfast.
the boys got these reindeer ears and light-up noses to wear

These are now hanging on the boy's own tree that they get to decorate each year. It's a fun tradition we have.
another day this week we had these tree shaped sandwiches
On Wednesday night we hosted the Lubecks for supper. I made a crockpot of pulled BBQ chicken and she brought a pan of homemade yeast rolls to go with it as our bun. Yummy! I also made a batch of Christmas Crack and some delicious peanut butter fudge.

A short video of us singing. It's gets a little blurry but you get the idea.

We had Bible study in Muyurco on Thursday afternoon. Before getting started all the kids had some fun climbing in the trees.
here is a short video of Cruz climbing a tree in Muyurco
David taught the story of Zacchaeus so it went great together.
I spent the rest of the day grocery shopping, cooking, and packing for a trip into Guatemala City that we are making today. We are looking forward to attending a Christmas gathering with our IMB mission family there this weekend. I am also looking forward to a doing some Christmas sightseeing, shopping, and eating out. I anticipate a fun few days ahead!
