A big part of the Christmas festivities around our house is the twenty four days leading up to the 25th.
Twenty four days of focussing our hearts and minds on the enormity of what Christmas means to us.
In the past we have used the Jesse Tree theme and other advent reading calendars.
This year I chose to use the Advent Reading Plan that uses the Jesus Storybook Bible.
Adriel Booker from the Mommyhood Memos did a review of this reading plan last month and I decided then that we would be doing it too.
The Jesus Storybook Bible is available at most good Christian Bookshops and online here.
I downloaded this advent bunting from here. Printed it on gloss card, cut them out and hung them on the piano, right near the dinner table.
On the back I wrote all the stories (with the corresponding Bible Texts).
So far we are up to story 5. Day 5. A giant staircase to heaven.
