Today is the first day of advent. Such a good way as a family to come together and highlight the gift that Christmas is all about. If you are interested, here is a great link that explains advent and gives scripture reading for each day:
We spent the weekend decorating our house for Christmas. Today Kevin and I worked on decorating Koen's grave. Kevin built the stand for Koen's four little Christmas trees and I made the garland and ornaments. We pour out our love to him in whatever way we can. He will be missed this Christmas. If he were here he would be a year and a half, and I am sure he would be loving the magic, wonder, and excitement of the season. I can picture his super curly blonde hair staring at our Christmas tree.
