This weekend, we will finish up our decorations for Christmas. We are a little late this year, so we may need to leave everything up a little extra long after the Christmas season is over!
We designed more printable pages to share with everyone who would like to decorate along with us. Those are much more “Christmasy” than the ones we shared last week. One is in full color, and the other is in black and white outline, so you can color them any way you’d like. You can use these for garlands, ornaments, gift tags or anything else you might imagine.
And don’t think that these are just for kids! (We know some of you adults like to color and decorate too!) So, it’s time to get out those coloring pencils and crayons and markers and get ready to decorate!
In case you’re wondering about The Big Blue Hippopotamus that appears in “How To Explain Christmas To Chickens,” there is a song titled “I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas” sung by Gayla Peevey in 1953. Check it out on YouTube if you’d like! At first, Pearl thought Christmas was about The Big Blue Hippopotamus because people in our neighborhood had them as decorations in their front yard. That’s why it appears in the story and illustrations…and in this ornament collection as well!

These will both download through Dropbox, but you do not need to have a Dropbox account to access them!
We are using cardstock paper for ours. Both of these will print out as full letter-sized pages with generously sized drawings for those who may not be quite the best at staying inside the lines. (Don’t worry, some of my chickens have a hard time staying inside the lines too!)
Today is the last Sunday of Advent, and we hope it will be a good day for you and yours. Happy Decorating!
SPECIAL NOTE: Bessie has been worrying about being able to share a new Christmas baking recipe with everyone because nobody is laying any eggs right now, but her best friend Gracie has come through for her. She laid two eggs this week and is working on another one this morning. Be on the lookout for a new recipe soon! I’m not sure what Bessie will come up with, but I’m sure it will be good!
