Like it has done for the past few years, Advent is passing by quickly and our days are filled with at least one holiday themed activity if not a constant flow of them. As a kid, I remember this time before Christmas crawling by at a snails pace and I wished my days away, longing for Christmas morning.
After getting the tree up, the weather decided to go all warm and beachy on us and we delighted in the time spent outside and in t-shirts. We hit up Brookgreens Night of a Thousand Candles and it proved to be magic once again.
Helping out in our neighborhood allows us to visit Mr. Joel’s house for sign decorating. Joel’s yard is amazing with bee hives and orange trees and a fire pit with swing chairs. We “helped” but really we played.
On a day that started in the 70’s and ended in the lower 50’s, we visited Santa at the Inlet Square Mall. First year ever we crossed the velvet ropes and actually talked to him. Willow wasn’t having it but Lilly filled his ear with her want list.
Now we are prepping for the end of the year,pageants, programs, and parties.
On a side note, Lilly was so good at her dentist appointment today. She made me proud as she did exactly what they needed her to do and got a a big thumbs up on how great she is doing on her brushing. Mommy, however, has to go back for a filling…..
