Advent Ideas

We are going to do some advent activities this year!  I think we’ll start on Dec 1st and end on Christmas Eve.  I just can’t force myself to do Christmas stuff until December is actually truly here.  So, we’ll follow our own schedule.  I’m thinking we’ll do a Jesse Tree and skip the wreathy flower thing.  Why?  Because my kids hate candles and I do too!  They stink and they bother Bee-that’s just the honest truth!  So, a tree with ornaments is much much better for us!

This is a great explanation of Advent and Jesse Trees.  Here’s more about Jesse Trees.
