Children's Advent Program

This photo is from our children's program this past Sunday. I have always wanted to put together something that wasn't "all Christmas, all the time."

I selected three Advent poems and readings, and there was only one Christmas song - "Go, Tell It on the Mountain," in which the children did motions, including one where they had to shake their bottoms and extend their arms at the same time. It was so much fun...

Of course the costumes were the same, but with learning the Bible stories that speak to the coming of the Christ child over the course of the past three weeks, they understand.

It was wonderful! And that "Miss Leavey" thing (see a previous post) - well, Julaine has been vindicated...

Quilt update: Bronwyn's quilt will be shipped to Minnesota tomorrow! I'll take some pix before I pack it up ~
