Advent: Day 21

Lego Advent Calendar:

 Bible Verses:
and in your offspring shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, because you have obeyed my voice. Genesis 22:18

The book of the genealogy of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.  Matthew 1:1

Now the promises were made to Abraham and to his offspring. It does not say, “And to offsprings,” referring to many, but referring to one, “And to your offspring,” who is Christ.  This is what I mean: the law, which came 430 years afterward, does not annul a covenant previously ratified by God, so as to make the promise void.   For if the inheritance comes by the law, it no longer comes by promise; but God gave it to Abraham by a promise.
  Why then the law? It was added because of transgressions, until the offspring should come to whom the promise had been made, and it was put in place through angels by an intermediary.   Now an intermediary implies more than one, but God is one.
 Is the law then contrary to the promises of God? Certainly not! For if a law had been given that could give life, then righteousness would indeed be by the law.  But the Scriptureimprisoned everything under sin, so that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.
 Now before faith came, we were held captive under the law, imprisoned until the coming faith would be revealed.  So then, the law was our guardian until Christ came, in order that we might be justified by faith.
Galatians 3:16-24

celebrate the first day of winter
make snowman cookies
make marshmallow snowmen
paint a snowflake on a canvas

nutter butter cookies dipped white and decorated to look like snowmen
well, the littles had different ideas about decorating
i love that they took their creative liberty and just decorated however they wanted... we did a get a few snowmen out of the group though :o)

after we made cookies, the kids worked on making marshmallow snowmen 

 they just drew an outline of a snowman on their paper 

 and added marshmallows until it was complete

 they turned out pretty cute.

 the kids each had a canvas
they made a snowflake out of tape

 then painted their canvas with blue paper

 we let them dry
then pulled off the tape

 we had these fun snowflake pictures to hang up during the winter!
