Today, Sunday, December 1, 2013 is the first day of Advent. We are so excited to start counting down to the birth of our Lord Jesus! This is an exciting time in the life of our family, made even more special by the fact our two youngest children (5 years old) are understanding the Faith & Family traditions more.
Most families have one Advent wreath or calendar. We have *way* more. I'd be an over-achiever if I expected we will do all of the activities and readings that came with them.
First up, our family Advent & Christmas "wreath".
Next up we have the Advent wreath which came home from Religious Ed. with my kindergarden students last weekend.
Next we have the Advent countdown activity my 2nd grader brought home from Religious Ed.
The we have a Jesse Tree brought home by my 5th grader.
Today is the day we decorate our Christmas Tree! The kids are so excited!
Happy 1st of December!
Happy first Sunday of Advent!
