We set it up and eagerly anticipated the reading of the story with Ace each day. Now what to do with all these little books once read. I was a tad nervous to place them on our tree 1.) because Ace removes ornaments at will and goodness knows where they all are and 2.) the strings are a tad short to easily fit. So I came up with another solution that also helped us prune back our tree out front. I made our own tree! with some pruning scissors, tape and ribbon and wa-la our Advent Tree was ready.
Ace more than anything wants to put the books on the tree rather than read them, but often he will sit through the two page story of the day and then we place it on the tree together. So while he's a tad young to truly understand the meaning of Christmas. He certainly knows who Jesus is (to a point) and when asked where Jesus lives he points to his heart and then runs over to his Fisher Price Nativity scene and picks up the stable. :)
Only 10 more days until Christmas!
