Our family's Christmas celebration would not be complete without our annual Happy Birthday, Jesus cake. Chocolate cake and icing with the cousins--such fun memories!
With warmest wishes, we hope you and your families have had a very Merry CHRISTmas! Love and prayers from all of the Bryants!
The last week of Advent already! It has been so fun this year, since I have been able to do Advent with my Children's Church kids as well as our own personal family. The word for this last week was PEACE. We began by singing, "Light one candle for peace, one bright candle for peace. He brings peace to everyone, He comes, He comes." We focused on the story of the wise men and their search for the newborn king.
Tucker and Tate read aloud from Matthew 2:1-12. Then we shared as a family about times when we especially needed God's peace in 2011. Examples included times of sickness for family members, when our 6th grader started middle school this year, etc. We also prayed for the Lord's peace in the days to come as we prepare to enter 2012. We pray His precious peace for your families as well!
Our nightly craft was to use simple drinking straws and a hot glue gun to make star ornaments for our Advent tree. We added string at the top with which to hang them.
Here is a snapshot of our completed Advent tree for this year!
After blowing out the candles on our Advent wreath, it was time to open the last Advent gifts. The boys got new nutcrackers for their collection, and Sadie opened a princess cup and plate set.
May the Prince of Peace be with you as we finish out the month of December!

Hi, everyone! Sorry...life got so busy for a bit that I simply have not had time to update with Advent details. Hope your family is having a wonderfully blessed Christmas season so far! For week 3 of Advent, our family focused on the word JOY. Of course, we lit our 3rd candle and sang: Light one candle for joy, 1 bright candle for joy, He brings joy to everyone, He comes, He comes!
