Finally December 1st! The girls were so excited this morning opening their advent calendars - yes, plural. Today in our home made calendar they found out we were making snow flakes from perlers. We ended up doing them kind of late, and Angel almost threw a fit! But everything turned out so nice - and the once the girls made are so beautiful.
Our snow flakes are going up on the tree when we get the tree - December 23td.
All white perlers.
This was the easiest shape to make the nice snow flakes - easy to make something in the middle and then go out to each corner.
My non-conformist had to have some red in there.
The name for Jesus today was: The Word - we had a nice talk about how everything He says becomes. How in John it says: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God.
I'm going to like this years advent - family time and family sharing - with the right focus.
I'll share my schedule with you again - I might change things up a bit, my car broke down and is now being taken to the chop chop - some of the things on the list requires a car....
