Tip Junkie has a great idea for your family! Each day you take off an ornament and you do an activities on the back. This is our Advent Christmas Tree. I used green felt from hobby lobby and cut out the shape of a tree. Then I just used yarn, clothes pins and tape to put everything together.

 4) Go see a local Christmas Play

We are lucky that there is a cute little outdoor church play right down the road from us. They sang Christmas Carols and served hot chocolate and cookies afterwards. It was such a treat last year. What a good reminder of the reason for the season. 

5) Take food to your local police and firemen.

Thanksgiving night, we took some loaves of Great Harvest Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Bread. I got the idea from my pastor’s wife,  Angie. The guys were so thankful for the treat. It was just a simple way to let them know that we appreciate their service. wWC8Or7113c213133323230323ehL8TaGq_1365321917

Whatever you decide to do this Christmas, remember it isn’t about Santa and all the stress of shopping for gifts. Christmas is celebrated because God said “I love you” when he sent his only Son to this broken world. So during this busy season, let’s focus on Faith, Hope and Love. 

Corinthians 13:13 But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.
