We are always trying to build new Christmas traditions at our home to make the Holidays special for our kids.
We also want our kids to know the true reason we celebrate Christmas….Jesus of course!
So when I read this post at Homespun Living a seed was planted. Then after a conversation with a bloggy friend- Flatlander (Linda) I knew we must bring this tradition
to our table. The Advent Wreath.
The BG grew up doing this at his family’s dinner table too!
So last week The BG and I created what is possible the ugliest Advent Wreath every known to man. I went to the basement and pulled out a box of forlorn Christmas floral picks, and
checked in the used candle tub and brought it all upstairs.
We used an old cabbage slicer and started filling it up.
We were giggling the whole time saying less is more, but we couldn’t stop throwing almost everything that was in the old box into the cabbage slicer!
The results are pretty funny, but the lighting of the candle (s) and a reading from the Bible each night at dinner are already precious!! and a tradition we will
incorporate into Christmas from now on!
Tonight we light candle #1 and #2!!! Three weeks until Christmas YAAA HOOOO!
