Thanks so much for your emails and comments. I know that there were only 6 comments but I have always wanted to use the random number generator, so, I did. It came up with 4 and 2. So, the pouch goes to Linda, and the notebook to Honor. Ladies if you would please email me your address I’ll get these out to you in the next day or so. april(at)bysmallmeans(dot)com
We’ve decided on a couple of traditions, both have been happening on and off over the years.
Advent calendar – I have always liked the idea of this. I saw this one over at Pink Chalk Studios last year and I realized that I really wanted to make one. Last year I didn’t get organized in time and went with the chocolate calendar that you get at the supermarket. I didn’t want to go that route this year but, alas, i didn’t get it in gear again and just couldn’t bring myself to buy one that I didn’t love, so we got the supermarket one again. The kids don’t know any different but hopefully next year I’ll have one ready.
Decorating the tree on December 1st (or as close as we can) – We have always seemed to do it pretty close to this day but Thisbe this year decided that this was the day it officially has to be done. So we did.
We lucked out that today was also the tree lighting ceremony on base. We are feeling extra festive now.
I’m sure we’ll come up with more traditions as time goes. I’m still thinking about how to include service.
