Our Advent, days 15 to 25

I have so much catching up to do on this blog. We have been having a completely wonderful Christmastime. Santa came to our house early this year, so I will do another post soon about Nathan's third Christmas (THIRD. How is this possible??).

Also, this morning I read the best blog I've read yet on the tragedy that occurred on Friday. It's here if you would like to read it and I very much encourage you to do so.

Still continuing to pray for those families who lost their sweet babies. My heart just aches for them. I am so reminded in times like these that we were not created for this and this world is not our home.  May we never forget how fragile this life is and live every moment treasuring the time we have with our loved ones. And oh, may Jesus come very soon.

I really loved this advent calendar that we followed. Most everything was easy enough and short enough that even when we missed a day or two here and there, it was fairly simple to catch back up. :)

Day 15 - we read Luke 2:12-14 and walked around the mall and looked at Christmas decorations.

Day 16 - we read Luke 2:15-18 and sang Christmas songs.

Day 18 - we read Luke 2:19-20, 33-35 and made snowmen out of cotton balls.

Day 19 - we read Luke 2:21 and drove around to look at Christmas lights.

Day 20 - we read Luke 2:22-24 and met Santa.

Day 21 - we read Luke 2:25-32 and took pictures by the Christmas tree.

Day 22 - we read  Matthew 2:1 and read a Christmas book.

Day 23 - we read Matthew 2:1-2 and went to the River of Lights.

Day 24 - we read Matthew 2:9-10 and made cookies for Santa.

Day 25 - we read Matthew 2:11 and celebrated Christmas!!

And what a wonderful Christmas we had!

Praying for you and yours,
