Oh, and then Saturday finally came and the weather went from sunny and 70 to rainy and 40 during just the four hours Tim spent at work that morning. Womp-womp-womp.
I decided to put together this post and talk about all the fun things we do while we're getting ready for Christmas. We still have all those, even if everything else doesn't go as planned. I have only to look at these pictures to remind myself that life is good. We are so blessed.
|We have the most perfect REAL Christmas tree this year. It looks fake because there's not a branch out of place.|
|I don't know why I didn't come across the 'star is born' back when I was shopping for Delaney's first Christmas ornament. Now she wants a star too, and I think I just might get her one even though she has two first Christmas ornaments already.|
|Our Advent calendar and our boring elf Chippy who never does anything clever and mischievous. But the kids love him so!|
|Grandy got them this book a few years ago, and we read it every night at bedtime throughout December.|
|Watching The Elf on the Shelf movie before bed one night, and eating fruit snacks in lieu of popcorn|
|This has nothing to do with Advent or Christmas, but what better cure is there for a rainy Saturday and a hard week than fresh highlights and a haircut?|
