Christmas Tree and Video Advent Reflection

Yep, an 11-footer! Waiting 'til the end of Advent has its advantages: we cut a deal because they need to "move the trees."

Lots of rain today, so the tree was too wet to put lights on. It is up and looking dramatically huge; due to be decorated tomorrow.

On the subject of waiting, this is a really lovely two minute video about the season of waiting, which has lovely religious meaning but - quite frankly - is even more pleasing from the perspective of this tired, ever-triaging mom. With the Christmas season only BEGINNING in six days, I have so much more time/sanity to approach the obligations of the season after school, grades, parties, and other events have been concluded. An excuse to embrace sanity - need I say more?
