Light the Advent Candle Three

Welcome to our morning of carols, muffins, and tree trimming. Trimming the tree seems almost as exciting as opening presents. We each have our most very favorite ornaments to find. The owl goes on first, then all the glass pine cones and birds.

Muffins and mimosas keep us going as we trim the tree.


The afternoon brought some serious attention to gift-making. Helen has quite an ambitious stack of projects. Luckily, she gets to cut out here and sew during handwork class at school.

Lou is deep into origami and paper crafts this year. They are intricate and beautiful. She was sick all last week and spent much of the time in bed with paper, scissors, and a lap desk.

Nels spent much of the afternoon down in the basement. I'm getting excited about his projects.

Light the Advent candle three
Think of heavenly harmony
Angels singing "Peace on Earth"
At the Blessed Saviour's Birth.

Candle, candle burning bright,
Shining in the cold winter night.
Candle, candle burning bright
Fill our hearts with Christmas light.

What a productive day? BTW, do you know of anywhere to get the music for Advent Candle, specifically we want to play it on the piano?

I can't wait to see what you all are making. You have the nicest handmade gifts each year.

Busy preparations! I like your header. My mother had a number of Currier and Ives calenders when I was a kid. Your image reminds me of them.

Looks like such a cozy weekend of crafting. Amelia has been gone for all three advent Sundays so far, I am insisting she stay home this weekend, it just hasn't felt quite like the holidays yet.
