May the beautiful lights of every Christmas season remind us of him who is the source of all light.

Crafting Mondays..

This week, I laid out white gauze rounds, sticks, some stars, and some other odds and ends, with glue...

I was thinking snowmen, but I didn't say anything...

Tiny P jumped right into making snowmen.

Little M made a snowman family (with her own creative flair, of course.)

And baby J made a "snowball Christmas tree."

We have some interesting "snowman" art on our walls, ha!

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful. ~ Norman Vincent Peale

Crafting Mondays...

Last Monday, I laid out all of this on the floor, so the kids could spread out, and get into it. Then I just watched to see what they would come up with...

They stuck with this project for almost two hours!

They took it so seriously,

And the mess was epic, haha.

They talked,

And stuffed,

And laughed,

And they have a whole pile of ornaments on our tree they are proud of!

The extraordinary thing that is about to happen is matched only by the extraordinary moment just before it happens. Advent is the name of that moment. ~ Frederick Buechner
