Our Advent has gotten off to a slower start than last year, but we’re plugging along.
While I’ve mixed up sugar cookie dough, I haven’t actually made any yet. I’ll get to it… eventually.
For our Jesse Tree, I purchased a small, potted stone pine at the grocery store. I remove the red ribbon and am using Michele Quigley’s small ornaments found at O Night Divine. I didn’t have the circle punch (looked for one, though!) and I didn’t use photo paper because I didn’t have any, but I am pleased enough so far, even with the matte cardstock and crooked cutting. TheBoy enjoyed hanging the ornaments.
Last night we started reading The Jesse Tree.
This is a new addition to our Advent book collection. I really like this book. I’ve only skimmed through it, but so far I like it. TheBoy was very disappointed that I “had” to stop reading. The pictures are lovely and so far the story is interetsing.
Hoping your Advent is coming along nicely. God bless you!
