Last week, I shared a post using Christmas ornaments to tell a story. I told you that I would have some special guest posts on a similar theme. Due to some technical issues (I couldn't find the battery charger for my camera!) and some very busy kids (my special guest posters!), I have not been able to share their posts until today.
I hope you will find them worth waiting for! Without further ado, here are guest posts from my 3 children- Gibson (3), Ethan (7) and Lindsay (9).
The Angel ~ by Gibson Daye
Truth in the Tinsel- an ebook that uses ornament crafts to tell the story of Christmas. When I asked him what ornament he wanted to use, he immediately said the angel! Here is Gibson's story- interview style.
Who made the ornament? Gibson
What is the angel's name? Gabriel
What do you like about the angel? I wuv it!
What did the angel say to Mary? Greetings! The Lord has blessed you and is with you!
The Boat ~ by Ethan Daye
The boat is special to me, because it decorates God's tree. Boats remind me of God's world. I think of God when I see animals. I feel the cool breeze on my skin and I hear the wind. I love you God for the beautiful world that you have given us.
They're Not Just Ornaments ~ By Lindsay Daye
They're stories as well! Each and every ornament has its own story! But we have a lot of ornaments, so I chose an ornament that is special to me.
I am EXTREMELY happy with the prima ballerina. #1- She is beautiful. #2- She's a Barbie and I love Barbies. #3- She does ballet and I do too! But I only like the soldier for a few reasons. He is cute and he fits with the ballerina to make Clara and the Nutcracker- one of my favorite stories.
Ornaments are not just ornaments. They are special and have stories too!
What stories do your ornaments tell?
