It was fun thinking of things to do and letting Addi give her opinion on what she wanted to do during this time! 
We may not get to them all but as long as Addison learns the true meaning of Christmas and the story of Jesus we have accomplished our goal! :)

Happy Saturday!

Matthew 2:10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced exceedingly with great joy.
