Today is the first day of advent all over the world. The word advent actually means the arrival or to come... its the tradition of awaiting the coming of Christ, when He came to the world the first time and to celebrate that glorious day! But more so, to celebrate and anticipate when He will come again!! I hope that you and your family will find fun and creative ways to anticipate more than just the presents under the tree but the true meaning of Christmas. I am posting my advent day by day family fun calendar tomorrow full of the things that we will do this year to get out girls excited about Jesus' birthday...feel free to steal ideas and make up your own! This truly is the "most wonderful time of the year." If there are any things that you and your family love to do to anticipate this day I'd love to hear about it!
