But here's what's happening in our humble abode:
The kids are working hard getting ready for their piano/voice recital coming up this weekend. Juliano and Emily are doing a duo together of Jolly Old Saint Nick. It's so precious.
We've been trying to incorporate some advent traditions such as: lighting our advent candle each night, going to confession, and adding "straw" into our manger. We have also been saying the Rosary more often.
It's the little things that make this time of year so special.
Next week will be jam packed with shopping, parties and Christmas prep.
For now, I will savour the stillness.
