Advent animal week

The third light of Advent
Is the light of beasts,
The light of hope that we may see
In greatest and in least.

During the third week of Advent, we celebrate the animal kingdom. This is always a fun week for my kids. They love animals, and it is easy to think of many different animal related activities. We made sugar cookies with our animal cookie cutters...

We always seem to get our holiday tree during animal week. We have so many animal ornaments from years past, and we usually end up making a few more. This year, the baby dolls have been hanging out in the tree a good bit...

On Sunday, Tim brought his scroll saw inside and made some wooden animals for the kids to play with. They will join the Advent garden one day this week.

The pig is my favorite!!
