Advent Brunch

Today we had our second annual Advent Brunch. My mom and I host it for all the gals and the kids in our family. We serve up a scrumptious meal, have an advent devotion and then do some projects with the kiddos.

This year the projects were: making Christmas cards (to hand out when we go caroling), painting ornaments for their trees, and frosting & decorating a gingerbread man to eat (it's really a sugar cookie man).

We were amazed to see how enthusiastic the kids were about making the cards; even the boys! Magnificient works of art!

Right before the moms and kids leave we pass out an advent calendar and a container full of goodies for them to take home. The moms let their kids pick out something each day after they open a door on the advent calendar.

This was the second annual brunch, but I had to miss the first one! I was sick.
