Advent: Hope & STS{13}

Today is the first day of Advent!!! I’m so excited. I know, it’s supposed to be a time of prayerful preparation for Christmas, but I still get so excited, just knowing what’s coming. I think my children inherited that excitement… either that or they’re just being typical preschoolers who get crazy excited about any event that happens around here!

From this morning’s homily: Advent is our “rehearsal” for Christ’s second coming. Tonight, we will light our first candle on the Advent wreath which symbolizes Hope. We’ll be focusing on expectantly hoping in Jesus’ return this week.

Some of our simple Advent-in-Progress shots that have happened today!

    1. Thank you!! Traditions are a lot harder to keep going than I realize (neither myself or my husband grew up with many), but I’m glad, now, we’ve taken the time with the kids!

I'd love to hear your thoughts on what I've just posted. I do read and truly appreciate all comments. They make me smile!
