Jesse Tree

We had to catch up on the daily Bible readings and hanging of the ornaments, BUT ....... at least the Jesse Tree is up to date..... and I will endeavour to keep it that way! I am reading out of The Message. Even though the lingo is easy to understand, the Bible readings are quite long. Today Miss Tanzi proclaimed " This is boring!" She's only 4 so I will overlook her comment! hehe

This Christmas is going to be a memorable one! Never before have I 'hosted' Christmas! So at the tender age of 29... I mean 39 ..... I am looking forward to having alot of my family over for a delicious feast and some great fellowship!

Normally I would have made fun of my Northern Hemisphere friends who are enduring Christmas in the snow with icy temperatures while we enjoy glorious days of basking in the sun! I will not be doing this year as we are experiencing a cold and VERY rainy Christmas period. Mist and drizzle have become my daily friends!!

Fee I think you did such a great job making those ornaments. Mine would have all turned out like blobs!

Hey there! That Jesse tree looks incredible. We did it last year. The boys too had a hard time with the lengthy scriptures. I started to read them prior and just try to summarize them.
You did a great job on those ornaments.

Your Jesse tree is AMAZING!!!!! I am so jealous that you are so talented and found the time to do something so cool. I tried doing the Jesse tree with the kids last year only to fail half way through. Maybe next year I'll venture a try again...for now though, I'll just ooh and ahh over yours. I love it!!

I did find a simplified version of it to use next time, but I'd really love to do the ornaments and tree like yours. You go girl!!!
