Advent - The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Advent - the most wonderful time of the year.  Our Advent candle journey isn't meant to begin until 1 Dec, but since Advent began TODAY, we'll simply let it sit in the first spot for a bit longer than 24 hours. We are a smaller group than in year's past, but starting an Advent devotional has the same thrill it used to have when all the kids were little and we'd read children's books at night. 

I spent some time this morning checking out our Advent Index.  I created the index in 2008, it is still a good way to think through what we want to do this year, and to remember the fun things we did when the house was full of kids.   We took time after our Advent devotional reading tonight to discuss activities we'd like to enjoy this season and acts of kindness we can spread. Michael and I will be coming up with a Scavenger/Advent Calendar thing in the next couple of days. 

Michael is having horrible tooth pain and went to bed.  The girls and I watched ANOTHER Netflix Christmas movie. 

Does anyone have any INSIGHT to share on this graphic? I mean -10 IS -10. What's with the "feels like" temp? What DOES -27 feel like anyway?  Yes, I WAS up at 4:48 a.m. trying to get the nerve up to deal with the animals before Grandpa needed to be getting up and ready for church.  I realize the days are getting darker. Sunrise today was 9:44 and sunset was 3:49. 

CyRi won the Christmas decor award for "first tree up" this year....They had it up before they left on their cruise. It was either early November or late October.  We applaud anything that helps one cheerfully embrace the encroaching winter season. LOL  


 And look what was going on at CoRielle's.

Ok, THIS is hilarious. I love Benny's growing sense of humor. You may recognize the big, gold "1" from Papa's birthday...

It's been a great day...and it's time to join everyone else and head to bed.
