My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

Advent/Christmas arts and crafts

This first week of advent in the Catholic Mosaic book is about preparing and decorating - so the girls and I did that yesterday.
I found a very cute book at the library called My Christmas Art Class

 I let Rosie look through and she decided she wanted to make the Christmas birds.

I just have to poke a hole in the top and they will be ready to hang on the tree.

 We also worked on our first bird seed wreath.
Here are the girls working to mix up the gelatin, flour, corn syrup and water with the bird seed. and here is what the first one looks like so far! CHRISTMAS ART CLASS

I used a bird seed that cardinals are supposed to really love, because it seemed to have the most interesting variety of seeds.  We'll make a few more and then I will purchase the ribbon!
