Today’s advent activity is supposed to be “Take a winter walk.” It is at least cold enough today to call it winter, but I’m a little bummed that I put this on the calendar before looking at an extended forecast. It would be much more fun to do this with snow. I think it’ll still be fun, since by the time we get home it’ll be dark out. I thought about taking them into the woods with flashlights for our winter walk, but maybe too scary?
I love to walk outside in the winter and don’t do it nearly enough. Get all bundled up in your coats and hats and mittens, and then breathe in the cold, crisp air. Ahhhh. Maybe we’ll sing some Christmas carols as we walk, too.
I suppose I should figure out what we’ll eat for dinner after our winter walk. It might be a Paleo-cheat night at Pizza Hut. Lydia has another Book-It gift certificate.
