Christmas Crafting: Take One

As part of my continual quest to make Christmas all about Christ, I've been working on a few projects. This one is actually an assignment from Evan's "Religion in the Home" class, he had to make an advent calendar. After hearing about this assignment I naturally went to the source of all crafting knowledge. Pinterest.

Evan is not a huge fan of Pinterest. In fact when he and Chad get together they like to tease Sarah and I by saying things like " Oh, that's so Pinteresing" or sometimes they just shout out the captions from pins in mimicky girl voices: " OH EM GEEEE"  "Love." and "Want. Need. Yes!" And I can't help but laugh. We seriously sound like idiots ladies.

BUT there are some awesome things on there. The project we did being one of them. And Evan agreed. So I'll show you what we did, or you can get the real deal here.

Black Friday, after our 1 AM purchase of this lovely thing (shopping with insurance money is oh so fun!)

 we went back to bed. And then twelve hours later went out to brave the shopping world again where we could get $1  Christmas baby socks from Old Navy. I'm sure the sales clerk felt bad for our poor frozen footed child who clearly owned no socks since we bought 13 pairs, but what do you do. After that you just need ribbon, mini clothes pins, and number stickers. This project is SO easy!

Inside each sock is a piece of candy and a scripture reference, one to read every day to remind us of our Savior and the reason we celebrate. We are still working on our list (its not December yet!) but I'll leave you with today's favorite:

"And he shall be called Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of heaven and earth, the Creator of all things from the beginning; and his mother shall be called Mary. And lo, he cometh unto his own, that salvation might come unto the children of men even through faith on his name"
-Mosiah 3:8-9 

Leave your favorite scripture about Christ and we'll add it to our list!

POST EDIT: Here is our list for those of you interested :) mostly scriptures, plus my favorite quote, and The Living Christ Document.

 Like the polar star in the heavens, regardless of what the future holds, there stands the Redeemer of the world, the Son of God, certain and sure as the anchor of our immortal lives. He is the rock of our salvation, our strength, our comfort, the very focus of our faith. In sunshine and in shadow we look to Him, and He is there to assure and smile upon us. He is the central focus of our worship. He is the Son of the living God, the Firstborn of the Father, the Only Begotten in the flesh, who left the royal courts on high to be born as a mortal in the most humble of circumstances.” – Gordon B. Hinckley
