Today (well Sunday was as I am only finishing this post now) was the First Sunday in Advent for 2010. It is also the beginning of the Church's year.
It is a time that our children eagerly anticipate every year, but this year the anticipation of the start of Advent has been amazing. The children have been counting down the days till the start of Advent so they can start the countdown to the special day we all look forward to....the Birth of Jesus, celebrated on Christmas Day.
The children get so excited as we spend the day putting up all of our countdown calenders and most of our decorations. It is a time that can easily turn into chaos as we get out all of our decorations and prepare for the coming season.
There are so many wonderful traditions that we anticipate and the family time is something I eagerly anticipate and enjoy each year.
As it is the Church's New year we have made a New years Log like we do for the Secular New Year.Anything for a good cake don't you think?
Some years ago I made a banner that we place up each year and it really is hard to read. I used pink and purple fabric paint but I need to do something to make it more noticeable.
We have really enjoyed having this each year.

We try to spend time on these reflections each year by the traditions we have in our home that have evolved as our family has grown.
Blessings to you and your homes,
