Last week we were at the Library picking up 24 Christmas books so we could read one each day leading up to Christmas. :) Today I absolutely loved our story.
We read, "The Rabbit and the Bear." It was such a cute story about a rabbit finding safety in the bears den on Christmas eve waking up the bear who was dreaming about the birth of Jesus! I think the Author, Ivan Gantschev had a new twist in sharing the Christmas story and it was a brilliant way. I really enjoyed the rabbit who was not shy or scared to share about Jesus! :) A good life lesson to discuss with your child. :)
My daughter also truly enjoyed the story and gave it 2 thumbs up! She got very excited in the story and stated in a high pitched excited tone, "That is baby JESUS."
If you are looking for a great Christmas story that actually teaches the true meaning of Christmas then this is a must read! :) I think I want to purchase a copy! :)
I really enjoyed this visual for Color Street Application! So far Nail it With Selah and April is going great! We are eager to help you get your nails pretty or sparkly or both!

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
