Advent ~ Finding Meaning in Christmas

Advent officially started on Sunday.  This year I decided to set up a little advent area in our kitchen.  The girls made this advent wreath at church on Sunday.  We'll light a candle each Sunday until Christmas. 


I change the frames each month. This month they are of course portraits of Christmas pasts.

I also adore this book called the Adventure of Advent.  It is filled with wonderful ways to teach your child about Christmas.  I love having it out so that we can grab it after dinner each night to learn something new.  It teaches the Christian meaning behind all of the Christmas traditions; things we all already do this season.  For sure, I recommend this one!


And what would my little table be without Christmas tea? 


I hope you're all enjoying your Christmas season!
