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.

At The Parsonage – End of Fall

There’s something good I think in enjoying each season as it comes and Fall is always “good to the last drop.” Here we are at the end of Fall heading into more of my favorite seasons, Advent and Christmas and ok there’s, Winter.

Fall has played with us a lot this year, going from so very warm to unbearably cold…and repeat.  Unfortunately I’ve been sick for so much of it with one thing or another. This is the week I had intended to do some cleaning, put away Fall in our home and joyfully bring out Advent but I’m in bed with the Flu and a terrible cough.

Today I’m feeling better, except for the dreadful coughing, so I do still have hope of getting some preparations accomplished in time for the first Sunday of Advent. We shall see.

Here is a look at some more of the happenings of our final days of this beautiful Season of Fall. (Can you tell I like the word ‘of?‘)
