Advent Calendar - Day 3......Eggs!

Our advent calendar activity for today was something none of us have ever done before. We made ornaments out of eggs with all the guts blown out! :) It was great fun and I was thrilled that it actually worked! AND we managed to get through the whole process and creation without breaking a single one!
It was pretty amazing to see all that egg come out of just a tiny hole!
Faith didn't want to do this part so Daddy helped her get it all out, but she liked getting all sticky in the glue during the decorating. :)
Poor Fathie's face is pretty beat up this week. She slipped on a scarf in the playroom and landed right on her cheek bone so she's got a bit of a black eye. Then today she was standing in the wrong place at the wrong time and got bonked with the door by Joshua and it actually gave her a little cut on her cheek which is why she is wearing that huge band aid. It's actually not very big, but the giant band aid made her feel better.  :)
Our tree full of completely home made ornaments is turning out to be quite beautiful I think! Here is one of our egg ornaments we made tonight, and a few others we added this week. 
We made these delicious smelling cut out ornaments today at our friend's house that are made up of applesauce and yummy smelling spices!
And I think our bottle cap sparkly snowflakes turned out pretty great too.  :) 
I hope all of you are having a wonderful advent season. We sure are enjoying ours! 


  1. I bet this will be the VERY BEST CHRISTMAS TREE you will ever have.In years to come this one you will remember.Our first one was the last tree in the lot and gotten for free. You can just imagine what it looked like but we loved it.

  2. I love the bow around the egg, it looks so nice! And I've never heard of the applesauce cut out thing, we will have to try that out :) -Carrie
