December is sneaking in oh-so-quietly ... but soon, well, you all know how fast the month can go! There are check lists; even advent calendars to help us keep track of how many days remain. We still lose track.
The tv commercials are getting cuter - it's hard to fast forward through them on the DVR!!! And of course, there are movies coming to a theater near you! It can be hard to keep your eye on the Christmas bulb!
I was going to talk about past Christmas memories and decorations that remind us as we set them out. But my DH just pointed out that the Halloween wall quilt is still up in our main hallway!! It IS a darn cute quilt ... but I have no idea why it is still hanging there!!!
So lets talk about advent calendars. We had a lovely one, with velcro ornaments that I very carefully arranged so each child had equal numbers of characters, and the child who got to move Rudolph didn't get to move Santa too!!! I don't know if my two children noticed how evenly divided the characters were, but I don't remember very many fights about it either!
Last year my oldest Grandkids and my small sewing circle worked on a "Random Acts of Kindness" advent season. I found a lot of suggestions on Pinterest (YAY Pinterest!!) and it was fun.
You can find a calendar here and here!
One I remember taking extra pleasure in was being extra kind to the PO clerk after someone in line before me threw a hissy fit! AND I didn't kick that person in the shins as I left either!
So, this month, I'm going to be blogging more often; and hopefully tomorrow I'll have found some past photos, gotten some Christmas decorations out and taken down that Halloween quilt!!! It's time!! See you then!
