Dec 1: Setting up the Nativity
December 1st. Advent calendar is up and in action-- "Setting up the Nativity" is an activity that we look forward to all year. Alex's favorite part is organizing all the pieces so that she can act out the story as I read aloud.
Please excuse the pile of unfolded clothing behind the wise men. The birth of Jesus is more important than laundry, right?
Alex shows Justin the Advent calendar. Last year he was our 'Advent Elf', cleverly mixing up all the activity slips. So far he's left them alone..... but I made sure to number them all, just in case :-)
