What do you do during Advent? What traditions does your family celebrate?
Last year I promised myself we were going to do a Jesse Tree... and it was truly disastrous (bakers dough ornaments... oh they were so pretty before I baked them... and then the cracking started...)... and I promised myself I wouldn't wait until the last minute next year and yet here I am, last minute Jesse Tree-less.
It's also official that the new place we are moving to will be vacated on December 22nd (the floors have to be ripped up and repaired though before we can move in and I think it's a little over optimistic to think we'll be anywhere near moved in before Christmas). And Paul is taking his LSATs mid-month (all prayers are appreciated!)! So it's busy, busy, busy! But I definitely want celebrate Advent more fully and begin traditions that the girls will remember when they're older!
Now I need to start searching for that book I have around here somewhere full of Catholic traditions. I bet I find it when we're moving! Unfortunately Advent will be pretty much over by then!
