The greetings are starting to roll in...the kids love seeing what the cards look like and who they are from. We sort of have our favorites and not that we don't LOVE hearing from everyone, so far here are the winners: two cats in Santa suits, a nativity scene, and a little white church! We love hearing from old friends, new friends and even our local insurance agent! Cards are one tradition in an age of technology that I hope never ceases!
Can you hear the squeals of delight? The whoops of joy and the shouts of glee? That would be my munchkins realizing they are on Christmas Vacation! The books were literally packed away and the pencil boxes tucked in the back of the cupboard! I did a little happy dance that we are on track and not behind! I can focus on getting the rest of my cookies made and last minute preparations for Julia's birthday and then Jesus' birthday! Our advent time is bringing us closer as a family as every day the kids wait to see what Holy Hero adventure they will go on. The calendar is almost filled up to the top and the crib is getting filled with straw for baby Jesus!
