Our Jesse Tree

Two years ago Nicole and some friends of hers got together to work on a Jesse Tree ornament swap. Nicole made 28 flaming furnaces and each friend made 28 of their assigned ornament. We neglected to set up our Jesse Tree last year but this year we are making a huge effort to make Advent more meaningful.

The ornaments that the women made were awesome so I thought I'd try to share them with you as we wander our way through Advent.


This is our lowly Jesse Tree (actually a Dogwood branch - pretty cool) at the beginning of Advent. Please disregard the messy counter and sink, hey, we're still preparing, you know, making straight the paths...and counters!

For those of you not familiar with the Jesse Tree, here are some great links:

What a great idea! I love reading this blog. It gives me lots of inspiration for living the Catholic faith with my kids.
