I had purchased a wreath for Advent. The plan was to have a simple purple bow for Advent. After seeing Dawn's wonderful idea, I knew I had to expand on my simple wreath.
I'm not too happy with the bow, but it'll do. I wish I could make those wonderful full bows. I think I needed to add one more loop on each side to accomplish the look I was going for. I plan on changing the bow for a blue one on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. I searched high and low for a rose colored ribbon for Gaudete Sunday, but haven't located one yet.
When I was putting the different activities on each notecard, I forgot that Thursday was the Feast of St. Nicholas. I may change that day's activities or add to it.
Our activities are simple but I know the children will love them. Tomorrow our activity is to get the tree. We go to a wonderful farm where we could cut our own, but those trees are not great. We will, instead, purchase a Douglas fir. This particular farm has the best ones I've seen here in Texas.
I need to get off to bed and do my novena prayers before midnight (Yikes! Why do I wait until before bedtime before saying these prayers! Note to self: Say them in the morning.)
