Advent Catch Up

Couple of crazy days with family in town, graduations, sickness and getting ready for Christmas..ready for the birth of the Christ child!!!

Day 9-Moses is spoken to thru a burning bush.....leads the Israelites out of slavery and into the promised land. (we have a burning Christmas tree)

Day 10-Moses leads the children of God through the Red Sea as God parts it on both sides and they cross on DRY ground!! (Moses's staff with the water parting painted on)

Day 11-Moses receives the law...the 10 commandments on Mt. Sinai. (thus the #10)

Day 12-Moses is dead and Joshuah is our new leader. He listens to God and conquers the city of Jericho by marching around it for 7 days.

Day 13-Samuel annoints David as King. He is the smallest of Jesse's sons. (this is the smallest gingerbread man cut out we had and we put purple glitter on him for royalty :))

Day 14- Although David is small he isn't afraid to stand up to Goliath, a large scary Philistine. (David took the trophy home that day :)) (Fun Fact- Adam and I have been to the site of this battle----super duper cool!!!)

Day 15-David is also known for writing many of the Psalms....the psalms remind us that we can pour our hearts all to God....David even talks of his sin with Bathsheeba in Psalm 51. He is big enough to take it and he will calm us.

Ill leave you with 3 cute videos Adam took of Baby Boy learning to stand on his own.
