While we have been focusing on these last few days of Advent by praying the O Antiphons, I have also been keeping busy with lots of cooking, baking and crafting with some of my favorite little people. Gingerbread houses, decorating sugar cookies and preparing for the Christmas meal has been occupying the majority of our days. Among it all, we have somehow managed to finish up the Advent lapbook.
Tomorrow we will find ourselves at the Christmas Vigil Mass as our daughter will be singing in the choir. Then it is an entire week of family, friends, yummy goodies and treats, and some much needed vacation time with Dad!
Needless to say, our house is eagerly awaiting the Nativity of the Lord!
In the words of my children,
“Merry Christmas Eve Eve!”
