          'Lets approach Christmas with an expectant hush, rather than last-minute  rush'       Anonymous

We entered into the new season with a little excitement. Xavier the elf came back, I put together our annual advent book calendar and I dug out a few Christmas decorations. We are definitely not ready for a Christmas tree yet, but I noticed that some people are starting early. I simply can't do that. I think the tree would be dead by Christmas... It is only the 1st day of December. This month brings quite a few birthdays and a wedding anniversary. In the mean time I'll be adding some decorations week by week and looking for new ideas to celebrate the coming holiday. I am also looking forward to reading all twenty four books about Christmas to my daughters. Tis the season!
