Preparing: Some of our Advent Favorites

 This week we've been busily decorating our home in celebration of the Advent season.  Some of our favorite things are:

Our evergreen Advent wreath-- makes the dining room smell good all season!
Our chain with a passage to read
and people to pray for each day
My new favorite decoration -- from Bangladesh,
via theTen Thousand Villages store in Montreat

Another view of it -- with a photo-bomb
And, of course, the tree.
The kids decorated it, so approximately 50%of the ornaments are on the bottom left-hand branch currently.
We've also started one of favorite Advent traditions, reading one of Arnold Ytreeide books -- this time going back to Jotham's Journey.  The kids can't wait to read it every night!
