checking things twice

Friday, December 14, 2018

1. Can you believe Christmas is almost here??? I seriously cannot. We are finishing things up with the kids school and after school activities and life feels like a mad dash to a finish line right now. I think once they are out next Wednesday we will all sigh a sigh of relief and slow down and prepare for Christmas Day.

2. Y'all...I've been so proud of myself this Advent. I have actually stuck to it and celebrated the feast days that I had originally planned. It's been fun...busy but fun. The other night while we ate dinner Cameron told the kids they had no idea how lucky they were to have a mom who went all out to teach them new things and man that made me so happy. Who doesn't love to feel validated :) Wednesday we celebrated our Lady of Guadalupe. This is a huge holiday here in Texas. We had tacos for dinner...lite our Virgin de Guadalupe candle and listened to the Coco soundtrack. I read the story of Juan Diego and Mary appearing to him and overall it was a successful celebration! 

3. The boys had ugly holiday sweater day at school this week.

"May the Holy Spirit enkindle you with the fire of his Love so that you may preserve, unfailingly, in the love of His service."

{7qt} creating a simple advent for your family

Friday, November 30, 2018

Here are 7 simple ways that we celebrate Advent! I am fully convinced that if we can pull it off so can you :)
My goal for Advent is to make it as family friendly as possible. Over the past 2 years I have found the things that work best for our busy family. It's been a "learn as you go" process for the most part ;) I absolutely LOVE Advent! It's one of my favorite seasons in the liturgical calendar and incorporating it in our family's life was very important to me because it was something that we didn't do when I was a kid. 

tis the season

The Advent and Christmas seasons are right around the corner. This time of year is one of my favorites! It use to be my favorite but the older I get the more I enjoy every season. However, this is probably close to the top.

a week of thankfulness

After a week of relaxing, fun activities and lots of family the kids are back in school. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving week and I am convinced that the older the kids get, the more enjoyable holidays are :)

We started off the week going to see the Nutcracker. It was good...a little weird but good.
