My November goals didn't go well. My December goals are simple. As we celebrate Advent, we want to keep things simple.
- Start our days with the advent calendar and reading from the Jesus Story Book Bible.
- Involve the kids in cooking -- helping in the kitchen is one of their favorite activities and I hope one that becomes both a tradition and a fond memory.
- Celebrate Mark's Birthday well, he was born on the 22nd and it usually get wrapped into family events, not a date celebrating my husband. So somewhere over the celebrations of Christmas, our goal is to have a date as husband and wife, specifically to celebrate his birthday.
- Plan Behr's birthday party before we go out of town for Christmas. (Can someone tell me how he is nearly 4 already?)
I am tempted to add more hopes to what our time away for Christmas will look like, but I am holding that loosely and remembering to approach my day in thanks and praise.
I'd love to hear what your November goals are looking like
and how you balance the crazy of the season.
