..: O Come O Come Emmanuel :.. Advent in Our Hearts from the Archves


Just crazy how long it's been since I stopped by to chat with you!
 A whole month---sheesh.  

Well I miss you all, miss the comments, the chatter, the everything.  Life has kept me away. occupied,  longer than planned.  I hope my American friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!  

And now, onto Advent. 




This time, this gift of being still. Pondering. Silenced. Quieted. Hopefully so. Waiting. Watching. Remembering.
 Catching glimpses of  the small and the extraordinary in the every day. While we anticipate the most amazing gift ever. 
However you "do" advent will fit the family culture you're building. Elaborate crafts and stress inducing how to's are not allowed, Momma! Simple reflections in this season of waiting are all we need.......
I'll look forward to reflecting here in this space a bit on this liturgical season of advent during the  coming weeks...For now, here's a collection of numerous activities my family's enjoyed in the decade and a half we have been blessed as parents.

 Some are just plain fun and some have taught us much about ourselves and this glittering, sparkling season of......well...waiting.


Enjoy my friends.
I'll look forward to seeing you soon.
