The fun. It's just exciting! I love everything about this time of the year (except the cranky crowds. . but we won't go there). Today marked the official start of Advent and I am just giddy with anticipation as we attempt to daily prepare ourselves for the celebration of Christ's birth.
It is an exciting time as we focus on teaching our two boys what Christmas is all about. As I sit back (ignoring the long to-do list that eagerly awaits my attention) and reflect on this month's activities, I am drawn to the quiet anticipation that brings unmistakable joy.
