Preparing to prepare

Or the advent of Advent.

Nanna has made our boys a beautiful Advent Calendar this year. There are 24 pockets waiting to be filled.

Of course, Catholic mothers all over the world have been thinking of how to celebrate Advent. Maybe next year I’ll be able to contribute a daily gregorian chant antiphon, but today I’m drawing on Catholic Mom’s Advent Activities – a long list of links. In particular the Jesse Tree from Domestic Church.

We are also signed up for the Holy Heroes Advent Adventure. The last one we opted for was a bit much to keep up with, but handy if the opportunity arises.

So, hopefully, a daily colouring in page will satisfy both the spiritual and recreational requirements of the season.
