"Then the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end."
Now everyone has received their advent calendars, I can finally blog about them. I made 4 of them. I thought it would be a fun gift. So I made the calendar out of mini muffin tins, filled the pockets with little treats, and I broke out the old typewriter. I typed a fun advent activity for each day. I also have gifts that accompany some of the activities. I'm thinking of making more of these for next year and selling them on Etsy. The only problem is, the shipping. I know the ones I made got a little too jostled around. I definitely will have to improve on the packing skills.
Merry Christmas everyone, and don't get too caught up in the hustle and the bustle, and remember that this season is all about celebrating our Savior's birthday!
