advent calander, tree decorations, messy house.

Well I'm glad that sometimes when I think of something I want to post about I save a title and leave it at that if I dont have time to make the whole post at the time. I love to share about our advent activities. Today I will do it with pictures, here goes. Oh in case you were not around last year we do advent a bit different, I make it my own. We have a calendar that I made last year with pockets for each day. On a piece of paper I write a bible verse and an activity usually pertaining to the story we read. The girls also get a piece of candy with each activity, this usually keeps them quiet long enough to hear the story. We start with creation and move through the bible chronologically for the most part up to the birth of Jesus which we talk about on Christmas eve.

Sorry I had to delete the pics off my blog, I have decided to keep my blog public no matter how many hateful comments I get. If I made my blog private it would defeat the purpose so instead I will just delete the pictures and refrain from using names in attempt to keep things safe for us. 


  1. That's such a creative idea!! Your kids are adorable

  2. Are those actual gingerbread cookies? I love gingerbread, but i can't find ginger here.

  3. You are creating such wonderful memories for your girls! Great job, mama! :)

    I have to ask, where did you find a gingerbread man cookie cutter? I know there's a place in Tepa that sells all kinds of cake and cookie tools, but we rarely go and our town doesn't sell cool things like that.
