advent reading day 2

advent reading day 2

scripture reading: the terrible lie, genesis 3, JSBB pgs 28-37*

symbol: a fruit tree, representing adam's and eve's choice not to trust God and to eat from the forbidden tree

*we are using the jesus storybook bible by sally lloyd jones for our kid-friendly readings.

so how do we do our advent readings?  well, we adjust it a bit each year as the boys get older, but we always do our reading following dinner.  we all pile on the couch under a comfy blanket and soak in the words of the reading for that night.  this year, we will have burrito read the story aloud and then have each boy take turns hanging an ornament on our advent tree.

this year we have a pair of trees we are designating for our advent ornaments.
we started off our advent readings yesterday with a little surprise christmas adventure that we've never done before.  i'll report on that soon!
