Advent Is For Waiting

Every year I take some time to contemplate Advent. How will we observe it this year? What did we enjoy last year? What is it that I want the babies to learn from this season?

There is such variety in the ways that different families approach the various Holidays. I like hearing what others do especially for Christmas and for Easter. Each family has its traditions. They are handed down, some perhaps through generations, some no one remembers where they came from while others have been carefully developed. And there are those where traditions never entered family life even during the holidays.

I am enjoying this holiday more each year as the babies get older. And now that Phil has his beloved smoker he declared that he actually might start looking forward to Thanksgiving as well.
