First off we made our own Advent wreath.
We watched The King is Born, a great little video from a series that I had watched as a kid. M loved it, and it was a perfect way to bring the nativity story to life for her.
After that we watched "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas" on TV before we got the kids ready for bed. Hey, we're only human! It's hard not to get caught up in the fun parts of the "traditional" Christmas season!
Tomorrow I'll post pictures of our Advent calendars, Jesse Tree, and Manger Padding; some other fun ways that we are helping M be involved in the process of preparing for Jesus.
