Advent 2013


I have (not always successfully) been trying to simplify things these days. So this year, advent is going to get a little simpler than the last few years around here. This year, I am going to use up the bags I have left over from last year – and hang up on a wall. In a Christmas three shape? Maybe. In each bag will be a little chocolate or treat, along with something that I love, admire, and/or appreciate about my son. Ahhh. Here’s to simplicity! Cheers!

Here’s a sneak peak:

  1. That he loves to learn street names and cares about how he gets places
  2. That he loves broccoli
  3. His handwriting
  4. His great cuddles
  5. That he loves Classical Music and Hot Tea
  6. That he’s a morning person
  7. That he remembers the little details of things
  8. That he always, always washes his hands after using the restroom
  9. That he is always rethinking what he will be when he grows up
  10. That he is reading Moby Dick with his father – and that he loves to read in general
  11. That he helps me make great fort
  12. That he takes public transit like a champ!
