I have finally finished a set of Jesse Tree ornaments. I added the ribbon so they could be hung on the tree. On the backs I wrote the day that corresponds to each ornament and the scripture passage that tells the story of Creation to Jesus's birth. I can't wait to start the devotions each day with the boys and placing the ornaments on the tree! I pray this is a tradition that will be kept for years to come and passed on to their children.

I have started to create ornaments for a Jesse Tree. I read about this on a blog and immediately fell in love with the idea. Starting about 4 weeks from Christmas you sit down as a family for an advent devotional. For each passage of scripture there is a person and an image that corresponds. You then place the ornament on the tree. I decided to use felt to make them since I don't have a sewing machine. The ones below are not completely finished and I have since made 7 more. I will keep you updated as we get close to starting our Jesse Tree this year!

So today the moms group had a craft day. My friend Heather was too sick (Naughty little June Bug) to come and we missed her, but Jen did come over for several hours this afternoon. I had started working around 7:30am and I got several pages done today. Jen worked on peppermint soap that made my kitchen smell so yummy! It was a wonderful day that could only have been made possible by my amazing hubby who watched the boys all day.
- The Mills family was established on April 20th, 2002 when Bryan C. Mills married Allison Wilson. The family grew in 2005 with the birth of Christopher and then again in 2007 when Cameron first made his appearance. It just grew a little more in 2009 with Zachary's arrival and then again in 2011 when Ethan entered the world with a bang! We hope to continue to grow our family as God allows. We are truly blessed and praise God each day for the joy we bring each other!
