Preparing For Our King

My heart feels as though it may leap out of my chest with excitement as we prepare for The King, OUR King, our Savior.
We join with others all over the world to celebrate Advent.
Preparing our hearts for our King.
Little hands helped as we prepared, and I loved watching their eyes full of wonder.

Our home is quiet, our hearts are still, awaiting the birth of Christ.

Beautiful list of Advent traditions around the world. This time of year we take a "break from school"  and focus on Christ. We learn about Advent and Christmas traditions around the world. And, the boys learn how to prepare our home, gifts, and food/treats for others. We simply relish in the moments at home with each other, as I pray they linger a bit longer.

Oh, I love how you just put sticks in a jar. I've been trying to figure out how to get a large branch in here, ha ha!
I still have to cut out my advent pictures but we're on our way too! Love sharing this time with others who are serious about the true meaning.
Have a great day!

Love, Heather

We are so enjoying Ann Voskamp's advent booklet as well! I love your branches in the jar. :)
