Jesse Tree...First Day of Advent...

December 1st!
Ist day of Advent!
I am so excited to start the tradition of the "Jesse Tree" with Allikaye.

We read the first day today...
which was the beginning of creation...
Genesis 1:21-36
we talked about how God made Allikaye, and mama, and daddy.
Miss Thing chimed right in and told us that God made Tre too (our dog)...
yes He did!
Here is sweetie-poo reading her Bible along with us...
I love this picture!!
I think this little chick is going to really enjoy our advent time!
Here is Allikaye putting the first ornament on her Jesse Tree.
It is a wonderfully crafted 'world'...
made by her mama, out of paper...
the land is brown because I couldn't find the green...
and I was rushing to get this thing made so she could hang it.
I am determined to try to make the ornaments out of felt or something...
as soon as I get a hot minute!
So there ya go!
Happy first day of Advent!
I love this season..
and the message of the awesomeness of God..
that is so wonderfully told to us during our advent devotions!

And I have to throw this picture in here...
Daddy is teaching her how to say...
"Vanilla...ice...ice...baby..."
While she sits with her hat cocked to one side and chillin'...
I feel a video coming on...

Ashley! You have inspired me to work on my blog- how do I make it so cute?! And I love the idea of the Joshua Tree (a little late this year) but I will be doing it next year! We do advent but I don't have a good daily devo for it! Thanks super mama!
