Advent: Day 1

We had a fantastic beginning to our Advent of the season. It went as well as could be expected with the Brownies, since they are 1 and 2 years old. We opened our night with a prayer and then Daddy Brown read from Luke 1:26-38 as the Brownies and I began frosting angel and star cookies. Big Brownie complimented Daddy Brown and said, "Good reading Daddy!"

The frosting of the cookies, turned into eating the frosting. Eating the frosting, turned into fistfuls of sprinkles to the mouth and now...can you say SUGAR BUZZ?! What a wonderful experience on Day 1!!! Towards the end of our evening, Big Brownie asked, "Can I read it?" I asked, "Read what?" He said, "Can I read the bible?" So, we opened the bible and read our verse for the night again and when we finished, he complimented me too saying, "Good reading Mommy".

So excited to share this with Daddy Brown and the Brownies. Can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring on Day 2 of Advent.

The angels are just beautiful!
Both the cookies and the two-legged ones!
