Almost Advent

Thanksgiving's come and gone; we're preparing for Advent around here. We usually wait until the second Sunday of Advent to begin decorating, mainly because a fresh tree can only last so long. But since we're going artificial this year, I think we'll put it up on Sunday.

Lots of plans are in the works, most of them centering around our church. It's our first Advent with this congregation and there are many wonderful opportunities planned for the whole family.

One thing we'll be doing at home will be working on this great Advent lapbook. There's enough in there to last through the season; we'll probably do a little each day.

The children were sneaking around their ornament boxes this afternoon, knowing I didn't want them out until tomorrow. It's always so much fun to see how excited they get re-discovering their special treasures after a year's absence.

This, however, is one treasure we're hiding away. 


Crockett started taking the toilet seat in the car with him - and then even to bed! (It's thoroughly clean; no one's used it in years). The final straw though was when it became his preferred reading chair. You gotta draw the line somewhere...

let the kid have his toy! He'll grow up to do his best reading there anyway...

Jess, that's what I'm trying to AVOID!
