Anticipating Christmas

Oh, how I love Christmas time!  The beauty of Christmas lights, the smell of evergreen, all of the yummy tastes of the season.  I love the gift giving, Christmas carols, receiving Christmas cards in the mail... I LOVE Christmas!  I love advent and the anticipation in Christ's birth. 

Do you celebrate Advent?  I know we are now 7 days into December so maybe not prime time to start Advent.  But it is not too late, our little ones won't know that we are a few days behind...

Here are some ideas for celebrating Advent-
Jesse Tree Devotional:

Fun activities with pre-schoolers-
Nativity Learning Pack from 1+1+1=1.blogspot.com
Preschool Christmas Activities from Confessions of a Homeschooler

Christmas books the kids we are enjoying:

And books we want to get:
J Is for Jesus: The Sweetest Story Ever Told  God Gave Us Christmas (God Gave Us...)

A WowieBOZowee Christmas by BOZ The Green Bear Next Door (DVD)Veggie Tales: Holiday Double Feature

I pray that as we are in the midst of a busy time of year that you are intentionally taking time away from the hustle and bustle to fully soak in the joy of this holiday season.  As you look forward to Christmas may your focus be on Christ, His birth and the reason for true joy!
