Advent- Dec. 16th


Jesse Tree:  Elisha
2 Kings 5:1-14

 Advent Calendar:
Symbol: Christmas ornament
Scripture:  James 1:17
Activity:  Watch a Veggie Christmas 
(again, we didn't get to this, but there is always tomorrow)



This is probably the favorite Advent activity for my children. When my oldest two were babies, a lady in our church gave me this nativity set as a secret angel gift. All the figures are separately placed onto a wooden base. Even baby Jesus is separate from the manger. So every night the last twelve days before Christmas, the kids take turns putting out a figure. As the nativity gets fuller, they know Christmas is approaching. On Christmas Eve, we put out the manger and fill it with straw. Christmas morning we place baby Jesus in the manger after reading the Christmas story.  Christmas is coming..I can see it!!!
