2nd Week of Advent

For the second week of Advent we learned about the wise men and the gifts that they brought the Jesus (and they weren't at the manger) and because the wise men brought three gifts to Jesus that is why they get three gifts from us. For our family activity, the kids wrapped the presents they had got for their grandparents. Like last year, we took the kids to The Dollar Tree and let them get a gift for each of their grandparents.
Again, this year Samuel's gift was broken. I just happened to snap the picture as he saw it. No worries...it was fixed.

Faith really got into the cutting of the wrapping paper.

Hannah Grace loves giving gifts. She really put a lot of thought into the gifts she picked out and can't wait to see her grandparents open them.

And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
Matthew 2:11
