We are so happy to enter the busy and full Advent season. It’s my favorite time of the year! (And such a good reason to start writing blog posts again).
Last year we gifted both of MT’s cousins a visit to a great indoor swimming pool with us + going out for pizza afterwards. We went with one of them this summer and on Sunday we went with the other. Yay! I think they both had some fun. MT did for sure. He loves any visit to the swimming pool, but the perk of bringing one of his favorite cousins along was sure something he really loved. Makes me glad.
Thanks for coming by.
Do you have a December tradition that makes for extra happiness?!
It’s Sunday and MT challenged me to find something fun to do. I did. We went on a Tree Hunting Mission. My first thought were to drive in our car up closer to the mountain, but then the snow made that not so easy. Then I figured that we could go out and look for a tree in the woods around the farm, I was not planning on any chopping – but MT insisted on bringing his ax. He wanted to chop down a tree today(!) So off we went – and after a bit we found the perfect little tree which MT got to chop down and bring with him back to the house.
I’m including a bunch of photos today. Most of them I took with my dSLR before we went on our walk, I did not dare bring my camera on a hike in the snowy woods – so I used my cell phone to snap the photos there.
MT was right – this was a fun thing to do, and now we have a tree in our kitchen, making it look and feel all the better. There are still plenty of messes around here, but we are for sure on the right track. Twinkling light does help a lot; makes it feel like Christmas instantly!
A little note: Above I included a photo with the story of our tree hunting mission. I did the wording online in Avery and am not happy with how it turned out – I had so little control over the look of the text – and will do it over in PSE before I print this for my album. It’ll have to do for now, though.
Thank you so much for coming by. Happy Advent!
