Advent ~ Days 1 - 3

Our first three days of advent have been wonderful! I love having these scheduled activities to do each day. It makes for some really great memories!

Day #1: Put up lights with daddy

We added 4 blue lights and one green light to honor the officers who were murdered last year at this time. It is a small supportive gesture during a hard part of the year without those men and women in blue.

Day #2: Journey to Bethlehem.

If you have never done the Journey to Bethlehem experience, I highly suggest it! It is a live action play that you are invited to take part in. Become part of a family who is on their way to seek the baby Jesus in his manger on that day so long ago. Hear the angels sing his praises and see the gifts of the 3 Kings for yourself. An amazing experience!

Day #3: Making wool felt hearts for the Christmas tree.

Just a simple blanket stitch around a felted sweater heart with some fun buttons thrown in for flare. But what a cute ornament they make!

Happy Holiday Season folks! More to come!
