A tradition with fond memories from my growing-up years: the count-down-to-Christmas chain!
I have more pictures from the process, but I can't post most of them because one of the neighbor children came over to make her own chain with us. We've been inviting her over all fall for various "school" projects, so it was natural to invite her in for this one. It was neat to get the chance to talk about Advent and the coming of Jesus while she was here.
We're counting down the days to Jesus' birth!
