Advent: Day 12

Lego Advent Calendar:

Bible Verses:
Who has ascended to heaven and come down?
    Who has gathered the wind in his fists?
Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment?
    Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is his name, and what is his son's name?
    Surely you know! Proverbs 30:4

He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end. Luke 1:32-33

free hot chocolate stand

this might be one of the kids' favorite advent activities
this year mauryn wanted signs to hold up
she was great and calling out to the people passing by and letting them know there was free hot chocolate AND snacks

 morgan was the hot chocolate maker

landon was ready to jump in with marshmallows or whipped topping 

 we had two sets of friends join us this year
we had the best weather and our biggest turn out!
it is always so fun to watch people's reactions to the kids yelling at them to come and have free hot chocolate... there are the people who avoid eye contact and ignore us, those that are curious as to why we would do this for free, and those that gladly accept the free hot chocolate and treats.  it reminds us of the reactions people have to the gift of our savior... some ignore it, some want to know what's the catch, and some who gladly accept it.

after we packed up our hot chocolate stand, we had some hot chocolate left so we set off to deliver some to the salvation army bell ringers.

i think today was a highlight of our advent season!
