Yes, I am still counting down to Christmas….are you?
This is what the little advent tree looked like yesterday with a total of 18 ornaments;17 were the original ornaments. I was missing day 17 because it got broken several years ago. You can read all about it here at Countdown to Christmas.
I have been worried about day 17 since I got the tree down from my closet. I still have not found a small glass ballerina slipper ornament. I just have to let that go and put something else on instead. My oldest grand girl chose a little church ornament. I thought it was very fitting, as I was being a little…ok…very selfish with my little advent tree. I think there is a bible verse that talks about sharing…”Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth……Matthew 6:19-21. Wonder if my oldest grand girl read that bible verse…..anywho….
Here is the lastest countdown on the ornaments. I left off at day 9….so here we go!
Day 10 Day 11
Day 12 Day 13 Day 14
Day 15 Day 16
Day 17 Day 18
I know it is the 19th and I do not have today’s ornament on yet. I am waiting until my oldest grand girl can help me put it on the tree.
I am beginning to learn my lesson!
I enjoy the little advent tree so much more when I can share it with others. So, I am waiting until I see her tomorrow to add the ornament.
Tomorrow is the 20th….and that means there is will be only 5 more days till Christmas….
But, today is the 19th and I still have 6 : ).
I hope you are farther along in your shopping, cooking, baking, gift giving, card sending and candy eating than I am.
