Advent: Week 1

The first week of Advent is coming to a close. We focused our prayers on strength in God, identifying the blessings He has given to us, and how we can grow closer to Him. Our physical actions, we hoped, to better reflect Him in our lives.

Some pictures to share our week events with you:

Thank you for sharing. Lovely photo's. Aidan is three? I'm excited to have Landen get to that age. I tried to read about St. Nicholas and he lost attention quickly, would have helped if I actually had a book I suppose.
