It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Today we started the Christmas Season in our home. We decorated, made wassail, celebrated the first day of Advent, sang songs, prayed and welcomed the season of celebration for our Savior's birthday!

This is our first year to have an advent wreath. LK lit the first candle tonight. Looking forward to the tradition to remind us daily of the reason for the season.


  1. I can't believe you did all that today AND had time to post about it!! And the Supermom award goes to . . . Carrie!!

  2. Mel...

    First of all, I saw your pics...you decorated today too..

    Second, I have not unpacked or done laundry from our trip yet

    Third, Kyle helped a lot (LK wanted to take ornaments off as much as put them on, so he helped a LOT keeping her entertained....)

    And Finally, I can't walk now my legs hurt so bad....maybe I overdid it ?? :-/
