Advent Week with Lay Baby Lay

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

I am so excited about this week. I've teamed up with my dear (and talented!) friend Joni for a week of Advent inspiration. The verse we are using is Isaiah 9:6, and each week before Christmas, we'll be focusing on one of the four names given to Jesus, with amazing crafts from Joni and recipes + fun ideas from me. Our hope is that these activities with your little ones will spark a little discussion and make this time of year extra special. We wanted to give plenty of time for you to prepare if you wanted to participate so we'll be sharing them all week. Here's a little peek at what's to come...

Be sure to check out Lay Baby Lay today to see the amazing modern advent centerpiece DIY that Joni made from using a cheese board and some sparkly votives. See you tomorrow!

special thanks to joni's husband chip for snapping some of these at our house a few weekends ago!
