For December our Farm Girl post will be a wrap-up of the week's Advent celebrations. This week is a little off since Ella was sick (and at Grandma's). We try to do something every day.
So far this week, we've got our nature table set up for Advent. Our Advent tree got it's first ornament yesterday. Ella set up our peg people nativity too. Last night we ate supper by light of the Advent wreath. Ella had me take a picture but it was too dark :)
We had our visit with Santa yesterday. I even got Ella's special dress finished, though Santa is covering the snowflake. We arrived at the perfect time. First in line! That never happens. This Santa is so good with the kids, it's the same fellow every year. For some reason this year Ella was really shy with him. Usually she hops up on his knee and chats his ear off. This year we had a hard time getting her to smile.
But then the photographer was able to catch this picture.
Today we are waiting for Grandma to arrive and we're going to put up the outside Christmas lights. I'm not sure Grandma can hold ladders any more, but at least I know she can get help.
