There are 26 days, according to Britton.
We have 26 days to Christmas. This means 26 days to find a tree, decorate it, address Christmas cards, mail them, deck the halls, compile a Christmas list, buy, wrap, deliver, bake, carol, party, mingle, cheer.
The boys were tasked with situating The Tree into the stand… no easy chore.
Belly laughs are the best. (Easiest ab work there is)
Yes there is a lot to do.
But first? First we are going to slow the pace a bit and peacefully welcome the first day Advent.

“For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
7 Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
He will reign on David’s throne
and over his kingdom,
establishing and upholding it
with justice and righteousness
from that time on and forever.
The zeal of the Lord Almighty
will accomplish this.”
Isiah 9: 6-7
