Jesse Tree Catch-Up!

This is the first time ever, my family has jumped into the Jesse Tree tradition.

Jesse Tree suppliesFirst, I received an awesome 28-piece set of Jesse Tree ornament from Jesse Tree Treasures


…and then I made our Handprint Jesse Tree banner to display them!

Coincidentally, I had already signed up for a Jesse Tree Ornament Exchange graciously organized by Michelle, over at Liturgical Time.

I made my 30 ornaments and sent them off and received this box a couple days before Advent began!

Ornament Exchange

Unfortunately…it took me until December 12, to take a good look at the ornaments.

The timing was great though…to receive a fresh set of hand-crafted ornaments to decorate the Christmas tree for my parents.

It made it super convenient to convince my Dad that they should in fact have a Christmas tree this year, as my Mom recovers from knee surgery.

So I decorated the tree…and these are the first 7 ornaments of the 2013 Jesse Tree!
