Advent Sunday! Have to run out and get my wreath and candles, the kids and I are going to learn about and observe Advent this year. I am totally excited about it, I think the Church calendar is fascinating and have never been part of a church that follows it. So we are on a journey of discovery.
I may have missed black Friday shopping, but I won't miss out on the rest of this Christmas season!


  1. I just realized today was the first day of advent. We'll have to hit it tomorrow lol. See how i rock?! sigh.
    I am wanting to celebrate Christmas with more intent this year as well. Thanks for the little kick.

  2. To my shame, I have to admit that I'm not sure what advent is. We have an advent calendar that we get out and use every December, but for us, it's just a countdown to Christmas Day. I tried to go shopping on Black Friday, but I have to admit that I didn't actually do anything but drive in the parking lots, see how crowded they were, and drive out again. Yeah, I'm a homeschooling mom who's used to shopping when stores aren't crowded. I'm a bit spoiled in that department!

  3. I'm so excited that December is here! The songs, the smells, the colors - I love this time of year! Have a super week!
