Truly enjoying the advent season

I am not posting my Super Saturday Post/Link because I haven’t spent a lot of time on the computer this week. I have been so busy preparing for the birth of Jesus. Cleaning, planning, shopping, and wrapping. It’s finally done. Amen. Honestly, I have not let this holiday stress me out like I have in the past. That was one thing I really wanted to accomplish this year. I am truly enjoying the advent season. We are reading our advent book, Jotham Journey, reading our Christmas books, eating by candle light every night while enjoying the lights of the Christmas tree. It has truly been wonderful.

I finally finished our stockings earlier in the week. A rookie sewer without a pattern trying to make 7 stockings before Christmas Eve is absloutely nuts, I know. I do crazy things to myself. But, like I said this season is truly joyous for me. So, here they are…


Next year, I will probably think they are so ugly and will have to make new ones again.

Happy Birthday, Jesus~ Enjoy your days with your family!
