After Amelia was born (almost 25 years ago, now–eeps!), God clearly gave Joey and me a Family Mission Statement. The major gist of it is to glorify God with a unified family. One of the many ways that God showed us to accomplish this was to involve meaningful traditions in our celebrations. And, obviously, we have quite a few traditions surrounding our Christmas celebration.
One tradition is using Advent Calendars and I just added another one to our collection! I designed this Advent Calendar using yummy wool felt pennants and embroidery. Starting December 1, each day we can pull out a little card and read a portion of the story of Jesus’ birth.
It is so festive strung around the little tree on top of our piano!
The only drawback is having to wait a month to start using it.
