But first….

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.

Ever since she noticed there were no Instagram photos of her, I can’t get her to stop posing (ie- hand on hip).

Belly laughs are the best.  (Easiest ab work there is)

this one only lets me snap a photo when her eyes are closed

 

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.

Waiting and preparing is the theme– fitting, really.

“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.
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
