17th Day of Advent - The Tree is Looking Quite Nice

LUKE 2:8-10 8
Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10Then the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.

Things are starting to shape up quite nicely here! The tree is becoming full with ornaments, we have hung the stockings and done some other fun decorating. Brant and I are talking about wrapping some presents and we are planning out our baking schedule. A friend of mine had a great Christmas decorating idea I thought I'd pass on... She and her kids made paper chains out of fun old magazines. If you have any old Pottery Barn Kids, or Land of Nod magazines laying around grab your kids and some glue and make some paper chain decorations for their room! We are planning to do this as our Advent activity for tomorrow after school. Paper chains and hot chocolate! What more could you ask for!
