Our Advent Study...

This year, we are using this study for Advent...

http://www.teachingmom.com/features/advent.html

We are REALLY enjoying it so far! It has lots of fun projects and it incorporates the Jotham book too. Instead of putting our tree up like we always do, this year we only set the tree up with the lights and we will decorate it each day, putting up ornaments that we make during our Advent study. Last night, we put up two different ornaments...Paper Chrismons and "Stained Glass" ornaments. We had a good time and learned quite a bit. Here are some photos...

Fun stuff! Our tree is already looking nice and it's only the first day of Advent!

We also did a Christmas cookie, called Stained Glass Cookies...they were fun and delicious!

The ornaments are beautiful. Thanks for sharing about your Advent. I want to do the same thing with our tree (which is going up late... tonight...) My daughter isn't too thrilled because she loves routine and doesn't like change, but I think she'll like it once we get going.

Love the ornaments, Lisa, and I have to say that Isaac's caused me to laugh out loud in delight! TOO cute!

Great looking cookies, and I like your Christian fish shape!
