Day 1 of Advent

We were supposed to start Advent yesterday, but just didn't get around to it, so we started today instead. The kids made an advent wreath out of construction paper. This was easier for us than going around trying to find a real advent wreath. We "lit" the first candle today, which again, was supposed to be yesterday. At least now we're all caught up. The kids also made paper chains with an activity, Christmas song, or scripture on that we'll do each day.

Our scripture for the day is:

Isaiah 7:14 (King James Version)

14Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

The boys got into the hats and gloves and stuff the other day, and Ethan just looked so cute that I had to take a picture. He looks like a little elf.


  1. Ethan is so cute and getting so big. It was good seeing you on thanksgiving.

  2. Hey, better late than never, right? Cute picture of the little elf.

  3. I love how you made the wreath with hand prints. Such a cute idea. And he does make a cute elf!

  4. I figured you would have done some redecorating! I'm glad I checked your blog today... it's so cute!!
