I love the season of advent; the reminder of hope, love, joy, and peace. This is the first year I have added a home advent wreath tradition instead of just witnessing the lighting at church. I like that my boys can participate more intimately with this preparation for Christmas. My wreath is as simple as it comes and was put together with love and helping hands. I had all kinds of grand plans of ribbons and fancy tags, but this is as far as I got. We have been lighting the candle each night at dinner.
