 Bible Verses: the messiah promised through isaac
But God said to Abraham, “Do not let it be displeasing in your sight because of the lad or because of your bondwoman. Whatever Sarah has said to you, listen to her voice; for in Isaac your seed shall be called. Genesis 21:12

Then God said: “No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him. Genesis 17:19

make a rag wreath

using this tutorial, i had my kids put together a rag wreath

i love when an advent activity can also become a decoration for our house :o)

i did the prep work and cut the fabric and ribbon
the kids decided on a pattern and got busy tying 

they found a good method to getting the wreath filled 

it took a bit of time to tie fabric and ribbon on the wreath but the kids did a great job sticking with it

i love how it turned out!
now i just have to decided where to hang it.

each year i set out a basket with our christmas books and we read through them during the season.  i decided to jump on the "wrap your books up" train.  i had morgan and landon wrap up our christmas books one and set them in our basket.  i will say that they have really enjoyed opening a book each day to read. its amazing how something so simple, like wrapping a book, can bring up such excitement.  these are the same books we've had for years but just by wrapping them up it has created a whole new excitement about them.
