Day 6 was a very busy day for us, we didn't have time for a craft that day, but we were able to sit around the dinner table for a bible study. Mitch read to us Mark 9:33-37. As a family we discussed how Jesus was a servant and how we too are to be servants of God, by serving others.
Day 7 was movie night! We watched Rudolph, Frosty the snowman, and Santa Clause is coming to town.
Day 8: Browsing pinterest, I saw where you could make garland from a string of lights and ribbon. Skylar, Maddox and I have been working together on this project. It's pretty simple, only I severly under estimated how much ribbon we would need and this is turning into an expensive project. The photo below is from pinterest.
Day 9: Last night Mitch read to us from the dinner table Exodus 25. This was a long read for everybody, especially the kids! Exodus 25 is a passage of strict instructions from God to the Isrealites on how to build and decorate his Taberacle. After this read, as a family we discussed how some of our Christmas decorations are symbolic for Christ, such as the star on top of the tree. We are also planning on making more ornaments that will be a constant reminder of Christ and I will post pictures of those in days to come!
