The first day of Advent

On the first day of Advent we cleaned up our house and took down our Christmas stuff.  We had our Christmas tree that we decorated and then we got out our play nativity.  The boys kept wanting to take pictures of the Christmas tree without the lights on.  I love Christmas time.  
 They absolutely loved staring at the Christmas tree!
We don't have an elf on a shelf but I am trying to teach the kids about right and wrong with one of their stuffed animals.  This morning their stuffed animal "The Cat in the hat" was hanging out with a message on their bulletin board.  Both boys were trying to figure out how he got there and Little N is pretty convinced that Little M put him there.   We will see how this goes and see if they understand that sometimes we do bad things but thankfully Jesus came to save us from our sin.
Our Scripture verse for today was - Numbers 24:17a  - I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near. A star will come out of Jacob; a scepter will rise out of Israel.
