Life of Mary 3-Part Sequencing cards I made last year. I had hoped to make some Nativity ones to use this season, but living a couple weeks without my own computer and now a couple more without a printer has put a damper on that. Still, we've been enjoying the Christmas story simply through reading books, enjoying dramatic play and using our Fiesta Crafts Christmas Story Advent Calendar for re-tellings. (We scored the calendar at a consignment shop a couple years back and absolutely love it!) And, the kids are looking forward to putting Jesus in the manger of our creche scenes in a mere two days.
Two days?!? How has Advent passed so quickly this year? Indeed, how has the entire year passed so quickly? I am not sure. All I know is that it has brought an abundance of blessings. Yes, day-to-day, there are challenges and frustrations, but they are far outweighed by BLESSINGS! The BIGGEST, of course, being the GIFT of Jesus and His love for us, in us and shown through each of us. May we all enjoy celebrating that love throughout the entire CHRISTmas season and the whole year through.
Blessed, happy, merry CHRISTmas to one and all from us!
