I should have known something would get in the way of actually following Truth in the Tinsel to the letter! :) Yesterday we had a sick daughter and a teething baby who wouldn’t nap. So we had to forgo yesterday’s Gabriel craft for now and move on to Mary!
L loves to model the little ornaments we make, so here she is showing her Mary doll. I’m not sure yet if we’ll hang up the ornaments since we’re just doing the “character” ornaments this year or if we’ll just play with them and recreate the Christmas account or what. But I did finally get the Advent paper chain up yesterday evening. We just attached it to the pine garland that goes up our stairway. Basically you remove one piece for each day after the kids guess the Bible “clue” written on the inside that goes along with the story!
