Advent begins...

Our homemade wreath...Emily spraypainted our pizza sheet, and made the candle holder from blue and green clay. You can't really see how great it is. She wants to do 'more' with it, but she's taking her time to decide what that more will be. Maybe evergreen? Maybe pinecones? Strings of berry?
Our Advent calendar, from the church. Yesterday was the first day, it says to talk about what the light of Jesus is, and where we saw it today. Avari saw it in the bright candle light, but the older kids talked about seeing the light in their siblings as they worked together to put the tree up. :-O
