advent is coming, kids. see last year’s post (and subsequent series of posts) on why i love this season, or the year before’s post about what the season is all about (and why college students understand it better than anyone else- i thought i really knew something about the world, i guess πŸ™‚ )

i have been preparing for advent and celebrating thanksgiving with some serious crafting and decorating in celebration of the beginning of the christmas season! i was going to spend this morning doing laundry and cleaning my house, but we have no hot water again, so instead i’m crafting and decorating more (and now showing off on here). here’s some of the fun that one black friday trip to michael’s and goodwill (excellent christmas decoration spot, fyi) brought!

i painted these blocks and i really like how they came out! i may move them into my classroom.

someone else does not. seconds after this shot was taken, he jumped up and knocked the bow off, again.

this was definitely the biggest project of the holiday. i painted all of this without a paint pen. be impressed. the cursive in the middle has the text of isaiah 9:2.

advent posts will be starting soon! in the meantime, stay thankful πŸ™‚ happy thanksgiving, friends.
