The Days Before Christmas

21 Dec

We’re enjoying the days before Christmas with the normal activities.  Baking Christmas cookies, shoveling snow, lots of parties, and time with family and friends.  I did most of my shopping online this year, which has  been fabulous.  We’ve also been working on the playroom.  So far we have the ceiling and trim painted and we finally bought the wall paint this weekend.  I’m hopeful that we’ll get the walls painted before the end of the month.  We’ll see.  We also plan to order our new carpet for the downstairs soon.  I can’t wait!  Another thing I’ve been working on is getting my Etsy shop started!  More to come, but to wet your interest its called Anna’s Loft.  I’m hoping to get some things listed soon.  I’m also working on a website too.

This year we starting doing an Advent Calendar with Lydia.  Each night we read a little section from her children’s Bible, we pray, and then she gets to open a door on the calendar and get a treat.  She loves the whole process!  Here is a video.
