First of December

Today we turn the calendars 
to the month of December

The stockings are hung

The tree is decorated, 
presents wrapped surround the bottom

But this day is special because we begin 
one of my favorite traditions at our house

Our Advent House

I love this time of counting down the days to Christmas.   

The daily search for the door of the day, anxious to see what is behind.    Candy, toy, or money, they stumble out of bed every morning to see what the treasure for the day is.   This year, we are incorporating the Christmas story.  Each day will have a small treat and a couple of verses that at the end of the month will complete the story of the birth that we celebrate.
