Jesse Tree

For the past few years I have read about others doing a Jesse Tree during this time of year. I have had really good intentions, but have NEVER even started.  UNTIL THIS YEAR! :)

A friend of mine on facebook led me to a website that I could just print it all off right then and there and so I did.  First step was the hardest :)

It was suppose to start Sunday, but I didn't get the message till Monday, so while Daddy was working hard (and late) the kids and I did the first two days on Monday and then tonight Daddy was able to join us in doing Noah's Ark Ornament.  I am really liking it. I had to tweak it a bit as far as the scripture reading in order to capture their attention better.  I think they are liking it. I am not sure they quite grasp it at all just yet, but we are making improvements and it's a fun new family tradition for us that actually gets the meaning of this season and not all the commercialism of it!


It's not too late for you to start if you want, there is the address to the one we are doing this year.  I printed the small ornaments off and they are still big. I made a green tree out of construction paper and they are taking turns gluing them on each night.

Fun fun!  And it's fun for me to get to do it for the first time....:)
