It is time, the first Sunday in the advent weeks and I am not even one little bit ready for Christmas. Given, 99% is because we are still living out of boxes, waiting on the new apartment and the house here still needs to be fixed for moving out. But man, I miss my Adventskranz, Advent calendars for the kids and my Christmas decorations.
Baking cookies with the kids, some by myself in the evening so they are done the next day when the kids wake up, have the whole house smell like Christmas and just being excited about the whole Season.
With everything up in the air because of the moving still it is tough to get into the spirit at all these days. But I am trying. I really am. I want a Christmas tree, all kinds of decorations everywhere, movies with the kids every nights in Jammies and with hot chocolate…. the whole deal….
I love walking through all these stores, seeing all the decorations, imaging what I could do with it all, wanting to decorate the new apartment and all these little things that make a Christmas heart grow fond 🙂
But as for now I am trying to be content and thankful that we still have a roof over our heads, a place to sleep, food in our tummies and all the essential things one needs to live plus so much more. It is the little things in life, as you heard me say so many times these past days. And even this Christmas I will be doing more on the small and comfy and cozy site than anything else to be honest and I am sure the kids will love sit just as much.
