Welp, not all advent activities can be as romantic or successful as the rest. I woke up this morning with an ugly cold that landed me on the couch most of the day, and advent activity #3 was supposed to be “dance to Christmas music.” This isn’t so appealing when your head is pounding.
Lydia had her heart set on dancing to Christmas music tonight, though, so for a little while we played some music and she danced around with Henry. It was shortlived. The night turned into a movie night. We watched Elf and one of the ABC Family Rudolph shows (the Happy New Year one) before Brandon brought out his guitar and strummed a few Christmas songs for Lydia to dance to. She was by far the one most interested in dancing tonight and couldn’t get Elvis off of the couch to dance with her. The night ended in multiple-kid meltdowns and early bedtimes.
Can’t win ’em all.
