Day One: After seeing this letter written the day we put up our tree,

we spent day one discussing what Christmas is all about.

– Jesus Birthday

– Giving

– Family

-and yes, receiving

Day Two: Collecting can goods for the hungry, dropped off at the school food bank

Day Three: A letter to Santa

Day Four: A snow flake a day

I taught my oldest and class how to make a paper snow flake, and my oldest LOVED it. So we will fill our house with paper snowflakes for the season.

Last year we used little bags for advent , our stockings hang from the fireplace so there was no where to place them but on the tree. I didn’t really like the look of it, kinda bulky for us, so this year I made us one of these. I had the items ready for a while but I hadn’t sewn it. We are just waiting for our custom felt numbers to come in, looks like we will have to wait for next year to use it. So we are using this cute little string I found at a dollar store, when I also bought these.

A little music for the festive mood, this one brings me to tears.
