Er, I have not strung the lights on the tree yet. I want to get new lights. I want plain white lights this year and not the ‘running’ multi-color lights we have had the past few years.
The Advent calendar is up. The kids have been getting their daily dose of “goodness advice” and their daily little gifts. Every day when they come home from school, they rush to see what’s in the little pocket and look forward to checking out their “surprise.”
I had managed to get them little Lego figurines (Friends for Zoe; Star Wars for Josh) and they have both been on the floor making up stories and worlds for their little people. Each day, they’d get one or two. Some days, they’d get books or little arts and crafts stuff. It’s like a little taste of Christmas every day. A little bit.
Please head on over to Sharon and check out her Holiday photos and follow on to check out the others in our circle celebrate their holidays. We’d love to see your holiday pictures, too; please share them with us over at our Facebook page!
