This year our Jesse tree is made entirely of crayon. Paper on the wall, and a brown and green crayon. I’m not exaggerating when I saw I can’t draw decent stick people, but somehow, this tree turned out pretty good. The texture of the wall worked in my favor, giving a realistic look to the tree bark and the green needles. My guardian angel surely helped me, and I’m pleased with the results.
From December 1st to December 24th, the girls will make paper ornaments based on the Jesse tree story and we’ll stick them on the tree. I especially like the O Antiphon days:
December 17: Jesus is Wisdom
December 18: Jesus is Lord
December 19: Jesus is Flower of Jesse
December 20: Jesus is Key of David
December 21: Jesus is the Radiant Dawn
December 22: Jesus is King of the Gentiles
December 23: Jesus is Emmanuel
December 24: Jesus is Light of the World
O come, Emmanuel!!
