Alarm went off...ugh Monday back to school as vacation time over. I really appreciated the break from routine and opportunity to get some pre-winter organizing done. Now it is back to books, back to work, and back to reality. There is an air of excitement with the kids as we prepare our advent angels today. We all draw pictures of angels and we draw a name of another family member. All month up until New Years we become secret angels to each other. Mysteriously your bed gets made, dishes put away, a piece of candy in your shoe, and my favorite was when an angel laid out my pjs and slippers one night! It is fun sneaking around trying to secretly do good. On New Years we reveal who our secret angel was and present them with a homemade gift!
