Advent: Day 6

Lego Star Wars Calendar:
i love chewy.
this is my favorite lego figure so far!

go ice skating

 ever since i started planning advent, i have heard my kids dropping hints about things they wanted to do for advent this year.  topping the list was ice skating.

we missed our day ice skating last year due to the flu running through our house so the kids were really anxious to get to go this year.  

i am pretty sure they knew they would get to go ice skating since we had some free passes from the summer reading program at the library.  everyday they would say "i hope its an ice skating day"

today was finally the day!
there was jumping up and down and hooting and hollering when they read the slip.

we arrived at the ice skating rink and it was empty.
we had the entire rink to ourselves.

we got the skate mate for mauryn.
it was perfect for her.
she loved being independent and was so excited about ice skating.

morgan hadn't been on the ice since we went two years ago but easily fell back into step with skating.  
i have a feeling that she will be dragging out the rollerblades this spring to practice up in case we go skating again next winter!

landon was brave enough to try skating without the skate mate.
he did pretty well.
he took two bad falls and hit his head but he got right back up to try again.

 our time was filled with kids feeling brave and trying new things,

 some hanging onto the rails,

a few falls, 

plenty of giggles and laughter, and great memories.

Bible Verses:
I see him, but not now; 
   I behold him, but not near. 
A star will come out of Jacob; 
   a scepter will rise out of Israel. 
He will crush the foreheads of Moab, 
   the skulls of all the people of Sheth.

A ruler will come out of Jacob
   and destroy the survivors of the city.
Numbers 24:17,19

I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.”
Revelations 22:16

We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.
2 Peter 1:19
