I LOVE December for many reasons. Not only is it the month I was born, I’m going to become an Aunt this year, I now have my own baby to celebrate with, I get to have chocolate from my Advent calendar, (Andres and I have been eating “healthy” lately and been having no sweets or sweet/salt of any kind – this daily chocolate is going to be a VERY satisfying daily reward 🙂 ) and December has all the Christmas traditions I talked about in an earlier post. My Jesse Tree ornaments are coming along, although I am finding that there are very different ornaments and different verses one can make / read for each day. If you’d like to follow along with me I’ll post the readings at the bottom of my blog, and I’ll try and post the verses everyday.
I decided it might be fun to watch a Christmas movie every night of December, so Andres and rang in the month with Tim Allen’s The Santa Clause. It’s cute. My favourite movie to watch is A Christmas Carol – the old black and white version with Alistar Sim as Scrooge. It’s the best. My dad and I always say we’re going to watch it … we get to it about 50% of the time 🙂 Any favourite Christmas movies out there? I’ll need some ideas!
