a cone~iferous advent.
so...i get some fun ideas out of family fun magazine, and this was one of them.
they were right when they said you needed an afternoon or evening to do it.
of course they were right. ;)
it really did take me all morning...the laundry can wait. it always can.
i am pleased, and the kids will love finding some sort of
reminder of Jesus every couple of days...(they suggest having treats and prizes for everyday, but i don't think that's necessary for us).
i find it a little challenging to keep my kids focused on the reason we celebrate Christmas...it's hard these days...but i am tryin'...how do you teach them how big and vast and un-ending he is? how do you teach them how much he loves them? how very, very much? i can so easily get distracted and overwhelmed at the thought of me parenting them, but i just can't go there now. i am in forward motion...hoping to please Him...
