Our tradition is to decorate our Christmas tree the weekend following Thanksgiving. I love that each of the kids has favorite ornaments that they look forward to finding among the boxes each year and carefully placing on the tree. With the number of small kids in our house, our tree always is bottom heavy with ornaments!
My sister-in-law captured these precious pictures of the kids each putting their own special touch on our tree this year. I love them!
On Monday, we look forward to starting our advent tradition. I am reading a devotion that spoke into the meaning of Advent. It comes from Latin word adventus, meaning arrival or coming. The Hebrews were expectantly waiting for the Messiah the first Christmas.
