Advent 2012- The Jesse Tree

We really enjoyed our Advent activity last year with the Names of Jesus ornaments, coloring pages and paper chain.

Over this last year we came across The Jesse Tree Advent. We decided to share this activity with several friends who wanted to participate. Each family took one ( or more) ornaments and made an ornament and we all swapped. All 20 of us have this beautiful array of ornaments starting with Creation and ending in the Birth of Christ. Our family definitively scored on this one as we knew everyone who participated and now this wonderful tradition is interwoven with the incredible relationships and each persons individual and unique take on how to represent that bible story of prophesy.
