Advent is a season of waiting and preparing.
It is so easy to get caught up in the commercialism and busy-ness that this season has become.
When preparing our Advent Calendar, I tried to include things that will cause our youngest to pause and think.
Some are simple joys.
Some are for others.
Some may actually encompass a task that needs to be done and that I could do faster but but I hope that by including her, she..and I, will take a breath and remember what we are actually preparing and waiting for.
Make treats for 4-H Christmas Party
Prepare a box of treats for our mail lady.
Give the cats a bowl of warm milk.
Watch the Christmas parade while sipping on hot chocolate.
(She actually got to ride on a float and watch the rest of the parade with both Mommy AND Daddy)
Prepare bags with treats and essentials to be passed out to people in need around town.
Make and mail snowflakes to Aunt Someone.
Day 7 will be added to next weeks recap-----
Can't give a surprise away here.
