Crafting Our Way to Christmas!

We've been working away on our Advent activities from Truth in the Tinsel and having SO much fun!
My muffin tin advent plan didn't work out as planned but thankfully we have an Advent calendar my sister-in-law made for us and it has been perfect!
Each day one of the girls pulls out an ornament to hang on the calendar tree, a card with the activity clue on it and candy!
This is definitely the most exciting part of their day!
Then we sit at the table and read the related Bible passage.
As they work on their craft we discuss what we just read which has lead to some interesting conversations!
I love how they are becoming familiar with the WHOLE Christmas story through these activities!
Also, considering that my energy is diminishing with each added week of pregnancy, I am so glad to have everything planned out for what we are going to do each day of Advent!
The girls are thrilled with being able to do a craft every single day and they are so simple that I am not finding it the least bit overwhelming!

Without furthur ado, here are some photos of Piper and Taitum and their crafts!

Working away on their candle 'stained glass' craft!

Which look beautiful on our front window!

Taitum dove right into painting her crown for King Jesus!

And they look ever so lovely, bejeweled and hanging on the tree!

These are the girls' Zacharias crafts.
They used a bubble wrap bubble for his mouth.
Then to symbolize how God took his voice from him, the girls got to pop the bubble!
By far their favorite aspect of the craft!

Piper carefully adding Mary's buttons with glitter glue.
The glitter glue was a big hit and was put to good use with 'extracurricular' crafts once our Advent craft was done!

Finally, the girls' own rendition of Gabriel (who they refer to as the 'fairy' - in their minds, angels and fairies are synonomous! lol)

I love motherhood.

We're a smiling family.

I'm a covenant keeper.

I love my husband.

I am above self pity.

I am a nation builder.


Worth more than rubies.

“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”

~ Sally Clarkson

My Hubby

My Hubby
He's my bestest.


She is my compassionate, dramatic, fun to be around 6 year old. She loves to shop, get dressed up fancy and anything else that screams girly!


She is my goofy, snuggly 4 year old who loves to sing and dance and smile all day long!


She is our one year old smarty pants! She does all she can to keep up with her older sisters and to keep them in line!
