Advent Preparation

This year for Advent as a family we're doing some things to help get mentally ready. Mommy and Daddy are reading a cool Advent devotional, written by Derek Maul. Derek is married to Rev. Rebekah Maul, the Presbyterian pastor that Grandmommy works for.

And Parker (and Wesley to some extent) is doing an Advent mobile. We gave these out to the kids at church last week during Children's moment. Each day they learn about another name for Jesus with a Scripture and some questions and then we hang another piece on the mobile. So far we've learned: Alpha and Omega, Immanuel, Jesus and Christ. We do this as part of his bedtime routine and Parker really looks forward to it and reminds several times during the day.
