Advent Day 5, 6, 7 and 8

The kids are really loving the Advent Tree....sometimes we have to referee fights over who gets to put up the ornament after our reading and dinner.

Day 5- Star- God made a covenant with Abraham that his children would outnumber the stars.

Day 6-Present-God gave Abraham a gift, Isaac his son. God then asked Abraham to sacrifice Isaac and after God sees his obedience provides another gift, a ram to take Isaac's place.

Day 7-Isaac's son, Jacob works for 7 years and is tricked into marrying Leah, then works for 7 more years to get his true love Rachel. Yes, we painted a wreath ornament to look like a wedding ring :)

Day 8- One of Jacob and Rachel's sons Joseph is favored among his 11 other brothers. His parents make him a coat of many colors to wear, which adds fuel to the brothers fury. Regardless, he shows great kindness to them later on in life and is used by God to help the whole nation of Egypt. So, we painted a gingerbread man with many colors to represent Joseph :)
