This year we tried to do an activity every day to celebrate Advent and get into the spirit of Christmas. Sometimes it just didn't work out and we had to be real and save it for the next day, or scrap the idea all together. The best laid plans...*sigh*....but I was really proud of us. (me)...I was able to let go of the "have to..." This really was about spending time together and having joy together and some nights we had to just let it go. I tried to document as much as I could.
