I know, I know, we’re not even to Christmas 2011 yet! But this will be my last post before Christmas, and this is something I want to buy things for during after-Christmas sales. Because then you can get special/fancier ornaments for so inexpensive!
I found these Advent calendars last week, and I absolutely adore them. Logan and I have talked lots this Christmas about how we want to share the true meaning of Christmas with our little girl, and this idea fit perfectly into that.

Isn’t this such a great idea? What a wonderful way to share the character of Jesus while counting down to His birth! I can’t wait to start this next year. Here’s a link with names of Jesus throughout the Bible, as well as the verses.
This will be a nice addition to the start of our Jesse Tree. So far we’ve only collected four ornaments for this tradition… but I guess we’re a few years away from our little one understanding what we’re doing.

I’m also looking for more ornaments to add to our Jesse tree at the after-Christmas sales!
