Advent verses and ideas

Posted by  | Wednesday, November 30, 2011  at 7:04 PM  
I hope each of you have had a wonderful November and Thanksgiving, and that you are eagerly looking forward to December and Christmas. I love the season of Advent and am hoping to spend a lot of time this season teaching my children about the king who has come to live among us! I like to use Advent readings, and am contemplating working through a Jesse Tree this December. I found this Jesse Tree printable which would be easy to use.

If you are interested, here is list of two different Advent readings for the season (I found this on a blog of a friend of a friend, so this is not original to me):

I love Advent too! I had printed off the Jesse Tree templates from Margaret Laird's blog last year and have been meaning to do them all year! Hopefully I'll get them colored in the next few days and still be able to use them this year! Otherwise, we have some advent book ornaments that the kids love, and the normal wooden door ones that have magnets that create the scene! So fun!
