Advent

Dear H, O and B,

Advent is defined as a season of “expectant waiting” for the celebration of Christmas. Each day in December leading up to Christmas, we do an advent activity — sometimes it’s something we do at home (like read a new Christmas book, go caroling with our neighbors or make a craft), sometimes we go out (to Zoo Lights, the train park, the North Pole, or other fun places) and sometimes we do things for others (like making cards for teachers, buying gifts for children who have incarcerated parents or making a treat for the mailman). We had such a fun time making memories this year. The whole Christmas season is more magical because you are here to celebrate it with us!

Love you,
Mama
