« happy feast of St. Nicholas! |
| the doll's Christmas »
These days are busy ones indeed, but oh such a good kind of busy. The tree went up yesterday and tonight is our little St. Lucy's Day celebration.
Everyone is getting into the season with secrets and surprises being plotted and planned.
A little shop for the dolls is being stocked, because they must have somewhere to buy their gifts.
And gifts are being finished up and packaged for mailing or giving. Tomorrow there are candies to be made and parties to plan. Oh yes, it is a very good kind of busy.
Hope you are having a lovely Advent with plots and plans of your own!
