Dec 1: Setting up the Nativities

...and so Advent begins!  Today's activity was to set up our nativities-  we have three in the house-- Mama's 'fancy' one, Alex's Mama-made felt one and Justin's wooden one.  As we set up our Nativites, we told (and re-told and re-told) the story of Mary and Joseph's journey to Bethlehem, Jesus' birth and all the visitors who came to adore him.

 The rest of the day was spent putting up our outdoor Christmas lights.

Happy First Sunday of Advent, everyone!  The Christ-child is bringing the light of the world to us, and we are awaiting His arrival-- we lit the first candle in Alex's Advent wreath-
