Our Advent Tree
Every year I have great intentions of doing an advent calendar and every year it always seems to slip through my finger tips. Now that my children are getting to the age of understanding I was most determined to do one. I wanted to stick with my simple + rustic theme for the year and when I came across Sally's and Seleta's giving thanks tree's I knew I could easily adapt it to the Christmas season. We found a lovely stick (which was the kiddos favorite part) and put it into one of my pots (that holds a Styrofoam moss ball) that normally sits on my front porch. I then sat it in the dining room so every night after dinner we can read the scripture that correlates with that day and then we would hang the verse on the tree. This year I am using the scripture from here. For the versus I simple used this digital stamp in photoshop and then printed it out on cardstock. I then wrote in the scripture. So simple and it's perfect way for our family to celebrate Christmas every night.
Do you all have any traditions that lead into Christmas that you do with your own family or remember doing while growing up? I would love to hear!
