25 Days

This year, me and Josh decided it would be a good time to start a 25 days of Christmas tradition with Sawyer. So, each night we open a little paper bag that has a very small treat inside (little toy, pair of socks, crayons, etc) and read a bible verse.  

I found a great list of scriptures at Over the Big Moon and so far Sawyer has actually listened pretty well without saying "can we open the bag yet?!!" too many times. I am so excited about starting this tradition and I hope that by reading the Word each night it will remind our little man that Christmas might involve getting lots of fun gifts, but it also about the birth of our Savior. 

Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

  1. Love that yall read bible verses along with the gifts. Advent calenders is one of my favorite memories from Christmas as a child.
