Advent has arrived!

We are all so excited that Advent has begun! We have our Advent wreath ready for tonight. We will have Dad bless the wreath using this blessing. Then we'll light our first candle for HOPE and sing Oh Come, Oh Come Emmanuel and Light One Candle from The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. We will also begin work on our first Jesse Tree. Jessica has an awesome post on the readings used and also includes links for coloring sheets, etc. Thanks so much for sharing all of your hard work with us! It looks like our tree will be made out of construction paper this year, which I'm ok with. I'm just looking forward to traveling this path in preparation for CHRISTmas. May we all draw closer to HIM and the TRUE meaning of Christmas! God Bless.
