Early December Nature Table



Today it really began to feel like Christmastime in our home:


Bea and I converted the nature table  from autumn to Advent.


The Nativity figurines were a gift (from France!) and the conifer candle, picked up at the farmer’s market, is made from local beeswax.  The perpetual calendar is from MamaRoots.


I potted up a Christmas Cactus cutting from my mother.  Hopefully, by next Christmas it will be in bloom.


Ruth and I began decorating our little table-top tree.  (We always get our tree from the L’Arche benefit sale.)  The lights and star go on, and tonight or tomorrow we will string popcorn and cranberries.  Later in the week, come the ornaments.

More soon, but now we are off to Ruth and Bea’s Holiday roller derby scrimmage.

Hope you are enjoying the beginning of the Christmas season!

  1. Can you recommend any children’s Christmas books that teach kids the Christmas story? Like for a 2 or 3 year old?

  2. I totally understand what you mean about needing to request your library books well in advance. I have to do the same thing. “Christmas Farm” has been a good one this year in our first year of homeschooling.
