So it all started with an idea I found that I loved. It was a guest post on I Am Momma Hear Me Roar. Huge Fan Here!!! It was a post done by Kojo Designs. She did an advent with 25 different names for Jesus. on ordainments.
Of course, it is Nov 29 when I finally decided to make an advent, so that wasn't going to happen this year. (I am definitely planning on making them next year!) I continued my search for an easier and faster idea. I found something simple on Pinterest. Paper Christmas trees.
That was it! I could totally do that. So we did. I only used the smallest template. I placed a candy kiss and a small paper in each one. Each paper had a name of Christ on it. I half glued, half shoved tissue paper in the bottom because I knew D wouldn't leave them alone and I didn't want everything to fall out every time he picked them up. In true Nicole fashion, I ended up with an extra paper, so one is missing a name. It's on the fridge for when we find that one.
Mine aren't as pretty as the ones from Family Fun, but D likes them. He decorated them with stickers, markers, and crayons. "Mom, they look like a forest." I am glad he knew they were suppose to be trees. Now, what to do with all those extra candy kiss??? :)
