The First Week of Advent in Pictures

Here are some pictures from our first week of Advent. For discussion of Advent topics, see my post from earlier this morning.
First lighting of the Advent wreath
Julianna hangs her first Jesse Tree ornament
Dec. 2 activity: Nicholas and Alex making cards for soldiers overseas
Cards for soldiers: one each from the three children and Mommy. (Daddy was at work.)
Bonus activity for Dec. 2nd: Some of our choir members caroling at Schnucks. My boys are ringing bells, in case you're wondering. And I'm holding Julianna by the hands, because if I don't, she'll try to wrestle one of the bells away from the boys. LOL
