Twelve Symbols of Christmas: Cookies & Bells!

Yesterday, we talked about COOKIES!!! (I sure hope you read that in a cookie monster voice, because really, that's what I do every time I see that word and quite frankly, it's more fun that way.)  We learned that just as there are a ton of different types of cookies out there, there are tons of different types of people out there.  God made us all and made us all unique, no cookie cutters for Him!  We took the opportunity to make cookies for those in our community who serve us throughout the year by bringing us mail and also collecting our garbage and recycling.  It sure was fun to see the smiles on their faces this morning when they saw what we had left!

Today we had fun with bells!  We learned that shepherds used to ring bells to call their sheep to them and when we hear bells at Christmas time we can think of our Great Shepherd calling us to draw close to Him. We played with our own bells at home and also watched a handbell choir play the "Carol of the Bells" online.

 Taking turns ringing a bell!!!

And just because I can't be the only one with this song running through my head all ya go!
