Welcome!  It’s the first week of Advent, and we have just started our preparations here around the farm.  We put up our lights and had cookies and kid-friendly eggnog for the first lighting yesterday evening.  It’s one of our family traditions.  My husband and the kids put the lights up on the front of the house, then they come inside and help me make Christmas cookies.  Then, after dark, we all get a couple cookies and a small cup of eggnog, and walk to the other side of our pond while my husband turns on the lights for the first time.  Then we sing carols on the driveway for a few minutes (usually until the kids get cold, which can sometimes take a while in Texas 🙂 ).  The lights reflect off the water in the pond, and it’s really beautiful.  Fun family memories!

I hope the beginning of this season finds you well!  It’s time to pull up a chair, link up those posts, and make a few new friends!
