December 1st

I did something crafty for once in my life and made an advent calendar.

Luke 1:26-28, 31
“In the sixth month, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, ‘Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you… You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus.’”

Angel Gabriel was inside the box tonight along with the scripture and a marshmallow treat for each of the boys. Reed likes to share his treats and Will doesn't complain. I like this new tradition so far.

I had actually already purchased to box and Christmas papers to make this a couple of months ago, but I found this website last night when I was searching for what to put in each box.
