We lit the first candle, we ate raspberry thumbprints and licked icing off our fingers, the kids wore new jammies, and we opened the first door and read the scripture that gives us hope that we are waiting to mark the event that changes the world forever.
The girls were giddy all day because they knew we would start our Advent activities today and that made the preparations totally worth it! And Abishai is also now convinced of the merits of Advent after one taste of cookie.
This month is a reminder to slow down and remember why were are eagerly waiting for Christmas.
Happy Advent friends,
