So - I'm not making any promises to do all 31 days (it would be kind of fun though, so I might try) but I'll at least start with the first 2 days!
1. My view today:
I finally finished my Advent calendar. This particular calendar has a history... it is a replica of the one we used when I was a kid. Here it is behind littlest siblings Jessica and Joe in 1985.
She left all the pockets blank but included scraps of felt so that we could create our own pictures. I'd been saving it, thinking it might be more meaningful to do it as a project with my nieces and nephews or something like that. But the "control freak" side of me beat out the "sentimental" side of me, and I decided I wanted to be in charge of the pictures. So last night, I finally finished cutting out all the tiny bird wings and holly leaves and got everything glued on. I'm really happy with how it turned out - it is like a little piece of my childhood all wrapped up in a piece of felt.
Instead of candy, I decided to do the scripture verse.... AND an exercise in each pocket. I found this nifty calendar and decided it was easy enough to accomplish this Advent:
Whew. I was a little long-winded with the day 1 prompt, so I'll keep it short for Day 2...
2 - My favorite holiday movie is "It's a Wonderful Life." Not very original, I know.... but I make it a point to watch ol' George Bailey every year.
