Advent day 17

Christmas reminds us we are not alone. We are not unrelated atoms, bouncing and ricocheting amid aliens, but are a part of something, which holds and sustains us. As we struggle with shopping lists and invitations, compounded by December's bad weather, it is good to be reminded that there are people in our lives who are worth this aggravation, and people to whom we are worth the same. Christmas shows us the ties that bind us together, threads of love and caring, woven in the simplest and strongest way within the family.

Advent day 17. Our Christmas activity today was to go the library and pick out some Christmas books. So we are home with "Maisys Christmas Eve" and "Happy Christmas Boris." We read one before bed tonight.

We have a busy weekend ahead which is good because it means I don't have to think up any Christmas activities ;-) Tomorrow is Isla's 2nd birthday party and Sunday is the Christmas service at Church.

I may have blogged more this month than i have all year LOL. I'm enjoying DeBloAdMo!
