display idea and I decided to run with it. I put some of the materials in the bags. Printed and laminated the numbers from Skip to My Lou. I am so happy that she had these printed. I really didn't have a clue how to do it or the time right now, and they are amazing. C and I lined them out on the mantel. We had Daddy-O and R go back downstairs so we could finish and surprise them. When they came upstairs C yelled surprise! Now when R looks or talk about them she yells surprise.
UPDATE: Today we added garland and lights. It really looks amazing. F and T came today and C explained that there were Christmas surprises to teach us about Jesus. The whole process went better today. I am really thankful I found this book. If you don't have it yet, it is not to late.
