It totally wasn't planned this way, but as I cooked shepherd's pie for dinner tonight, it brought out some great discussions from Avery about the Shepherd's roll at Christ's birth on Christmas. It was a great jumping off point as we start Advent. Here are the recipes we enjoyed this evening.
Santa delivered our Elf on the Shelf today, and we took a slightly different spin on the tradition after reading this blog post. We loved the way the author thought to incorporate Christ, Santa and grace while keeping thing fun for the kids.
