AdventING Away!

I just simply LOVE this Advent Calendar and all the memories it is creating for our family! My son has caught on so quickly! The very first thing he does in the morning is check the Advent Calendar. He counts to whatever day we are on, pulls the box out and takes it to daddy to read what we are doing to celebrate this season for that day! So far it has been a blast to reference everything back to Jesus. Who made the snow flake(of course that is after I have explained to a Texas boy what a snow flake is)? Showing him how a candy cane is not just candy but has The Messiah all over it. Reading about Jesus as a baby and seeing the awe of expression on a 4 yr old is pure JOY. Just JOY! I LOVE this time of year. Don't you? Here are a few pictures from our ADVENTING!

Here is a close up. Each box has a piece of paper it telling us what we will be doing.

Candy cane project & story about Jesus!

some of us were challenged in the snowflake making department. Can you guess which ones belong to my son, my husband and me?
