The Christmas spirit is rolling right along over here. I sewed some simple felt stockings, which I am going to send off to my mom after Christmas to be embellished with her masterful handwork. Ashton’s been doing some of her own decorating throughout the house, and packages filled with gifts and tins of fudge are arriving one by one. All to the tune of holiday melodies and the viewing of holiday movies. Matt has been home a bit more than usual, which is nice. Our advent calendar, with a few changes to the daily activities, has been a fun and interesting daily routine.
Unfortunately the diagnosis of Jessica’s early-stage breast cancer is a bit of a shock added to the Christmas build-up, but it seems to be the reality for us right now. More learning and sharing about that to come.
