Advent: Day 12

Lego Star Wars Calendar:

work on teacher and neighbor gifts

 each year the kids and i try to come up with homemade gifts for their sunday school teachers, mauryn's dance teacher, our neighbors, and morgan's gymnastics coaches.

 my kids love to be in the kitchen so creating homemade food gifts is a natural choice

 this year the kids decided to give out frozen chocolate chip cookie dough
there was a part of me that struggled with letting them do it all
the dough balls weren't going to be the same size
they were going to be misshapen 
BUT they would have the look of love from my little people
so i took a deep breath and let them have at it

 we put the frozen dough balls in these tall soup containers 
we will add labels and ribbon to the containers when we deliver them

 we also made some homemade hot fudge

 homemade caramel sauce, and homemade hot chocolate mix {i forgot to get a picture}.

Bible Verses:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.  Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.  In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.  The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
  There was a man sent from God whose name was John.  He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
  The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.
John 1: 1-9
