Today is the first day of Advent and for the first time in several years we are all ready! The new candles are in our Advent wreath, ready to be lit tonight at dinner. Our Creche is set up, the Christmas tree is decorated, the Christmas village is set up out of reach of little hands, and our outside lights are up thanks to my dear husband braving the wind and cold. Our Advent calendar is hung, and I have a project or activity planned for every day.
This was the first year Baby B helped to decorate the tree, and other than one broken ornament, all went well.
Miss M had the job of placing the angel on top this year.
It seems like this time of year passes so quickly, and I want to make sure we slow down and truly appreciate what this season means so we have some simple family Advent activities planned for the next month.
