    Hi Melanie!
    Thanks for stopping by today! I just love your blog. Our Faith is very important to my family. And celebrating the advent season is also. We have an advent book that includes 25 little book ornaments. We read one a day and add it to a little tree. My sons get a kick out of it and enjoy learning the story of Jesus’ birthday.
    I’m your newest follower! So great to meet you!
