First Sunday in Advent, 2012

advent wreath 2012
By now, Caroline and I are old hands at putting together our Advent wreath. We bought the evergreens yesterday, and (once we'd unearthed our decorations) Caroline layered the wreath with stars, orange slices, golden pine cones, cinnamon and all spice. With a little help, James had the honor of lighting the first candle. He held the match with pride and, as he pointed out, did not catch anything wrong on fire.

Great job, Caroline and James! I can smell that lovely piney smell from here. Happy Advent to you!

That is so lovely! A nice tradition - I don't know why I've never embraced it.
