Jessie Tree

Devotions to go with it...
I just saw someone asking about the Jessie Tree on Facebook and looked it up! I love the idea of doing something special that is all about Jesus (since that's what Christmas is all about)! Anyway, I'm going to use this site for some of the ideas for symbols http://www.catholicculture.org/culture/liturgicalyear/activities/view.cfm?id=545 I think we might just use the polymer clay that i bought for making little mice and make these instead... Hopefully, they will last then for the next year... we could use our little tree or one of the tiny ones for the girl's room to hang them on... We are only a day behind so I think it will work out... Love that the verses are right there to read and then they can make a craft... next year we can be more organized... :) Just found out why they call it a Jessie Tree ( "A shoot will come up from the stem of Jesse; from his roots a branch will bear fruit." Isaiah 11:1) Cool! :)

Here's some adult ones to go along with the kid's ones... don't know how good they are, but i might read along with them... http://www.jesse-trees.com/parent/parent-devotions.html
