Jesse Tree

Today I’m doing a re-run of sorts; this time of year the most frequent Google search that lands people at my blog is "Jesse Tree".  I wrote about this Christmas tradition at length last year–if you missed it, below are links to all the posts. 

(And no, I don’t think it’s too late to jump on this bandwagon this season.  You might have to scramble a bit, but it would be worth it.  At the very least, you could begin working on your Jesse Tree for next year, while all the Christmas ornaments are on sale!  I was at the mother ship yesterday and bought a three-foot Christmas tree for $6.  It would be perfect for a Jesse Tree.)

    I’m doing a Jesse tree for the first time this year with my 4 yr old and 1 yr old. I think the original inspiration came from your blog last year, so thank you!
    One fun thing I’m doing is using the book One Wintry Night by Ruth Bell Graham and reading a little of it along with the Jesse tree devotion. If you don’t know the book, check it out…it’s a beautifully illustrated telling of the Christmas story going through the entire Bible.
    Thanks for all your great ideas!

    I have no idea what a Jessie tree is – I’m definitely going to read those posts to find out though!
    Ummm, did you know the Hobby place is predjudiced? There’s not a one anywhere in the west. We need cheap stuff too, you know!
