We started our Countdown to Christmas yesterday (I still can't believe it's December).

 Today, the kids learned about the angel that appeared to Joseph to inform him of Mary's pregnancy.

Day 2 - An angel talked to Joseph about the birth.  
(Matthew 1:20 - But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.")

 Tomorrow, we'll look at Matthew 1:21, when the angel gave Joseph some more details....that the baby would be a boy, that they were to name him Jesus, and that He would one day save people from their sins.  (Wow, what a night that must have been for Joseph!)

Day 3 - The angel said that Mary’s special son will save us from our sins.
(Matthew 1:21 - "She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.")

In the spirit of these verses, the kids made cone-shaped tissue paper angels (idea inspired from here).

I think they turned out pretty cute.
 Meredith's is on the left, Caleb's is on the right.  Caleb insisted on putting "teeth" on his angel, thus the "jack-o-lantern" look to his angel's smile....

Go here to see the angels we made at this time last year!
