Today marks the official start to the holiday countdown. Ever year my mother would give me an advent calendar filled with the most delicious German chocolate. Each morning I would wake up and race down for this small treat. I have continued this tradition with my own children and they are just as excited as I was on those long ago mornings. In addition to the German advent calendar T also has a Lego city advent calendar and O has a Playmobil fairy advent calendar. The children have been impatiently waiting for December 1st and when the day dawned today they were in my room bright and early! Their exuberance is contagious and the joy of Christmas has filled me once again. We will be trimming the tree tonight and attending a Christmas parade. I'm thankful my children are here to help me rediscover the magic of the season.
