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!
