Gathering Links for Advent and Christmas

Edited to add more links on 12/3/09

Today, I’m trying to focus on making sure that I have what I need in place to begin our Advent celebration. Advent begins on November 29 and I need to get my ducks in a row. So, I’m posting links here to put everything in one place and to share with others who may be interested.

As with anything, there will be many links but I do not do it all. I refuse to stress myself out during this season. We pick what works for our family and that’s what we do.

Advent wreath: Our wreath is in pretty bad shape but I think that I can use this to refresh it.

I’d love to do this fresh advent wreath but it will have to wait for another year.
