Our advent book for today was Humphrey's First Christmas by Carol Heyer. This is a sweet story about a young camel that has lost his beloved blanket and complains the entire story about it until he finally gets another one. Only to finish his long journey at the manger and find a baby. He gives that baby his blanket.
For our activity the kids and I purchased a couple of fleece lap throws and wrapped them up with a few other things. We drove to a nearby nursing home and left the packages with the nurses to give to a couple of patients that might enjoy them.
