Advent 2014 – Days 16-17

Advent 2014
 Last night I got to spend the evening with a group of fellow homeschool moms, so I missed our Bible time and got home too late to write, so I’m covering two days tonight.


My Christmas Gift by Crystal Bowman (for Arianna)

Mortimer’s Christmas Manger by Karma Wilson (for Elijah yesterday)

Angela and the Baby Jesus by Frank McCourt (for Elijah today)

The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree by Gloria Houston (for Ian)

I missed seeing the boys’ creations for the Jesse Tree LEGO Challenge last night, but they took pictures of their roses and prophets for me.

Tonight the built wolves and lambs, which proved to be rather challenging!


We had to replace our first Advent candle today, since Jotham’s Journey is taking us a little longer to read than our devotions last year.  We closed our evening with “Joy to the World.”
