Christmas Traditions- Jesse Tree

This is our first year doing a Jesse tree. We have enjoyed it.
Here are pictures of what ours looks like right now.
A new ornament is added daily.

This has helped us keep our focus of this season on Christ.

Our ornaments are simple.

Each coordinates with the story focus of the day.
If you have not tried doing a Jesse tree or feel you do not have time,
I highly recommend giving it a try.
Keeping it simple is the key.
Many blessings.

Thanks for visiting our blog. We are doing a Jesse tree for the first time this year, also. And, it looks like we are using the same ornament patterns as your family! The Jesse Tree is a keeper!

We have never done a Jesse tree but I'm seriously considering it for next year! BTW-Great looking family!

This is the second time in as many days that I've read a post about a Jesse tree. I had never heard of one before, but it sounds like a wonderful tradition. Hopefully we can start it next year! Thanks so much for posting your pix.
