Movie night started with a very fussy little girl... the only way we could convince her to stop crying was to tell her about a present she had waiting for her. She reluctantly got off our bed but continued to refuse to remove her coat so we let her wear it most of the night (really it wasn't hurting anyone). So she opened her Veggie Tale Christmas movie and we headed back to the room to watch it (our bedroom is the only TV that has a DVD player) She made herself at home and we decided to just have a special big bed picnic while we were watching The Toy that Saved Christmas. She loved that idea and before you know it she even took off her coat finally. Though our advent adventures don't always go as we plan - they are always memorable and we are grateful for time together as a family.
