Advent Day 2

Today was a gorgeous day! We spent most of the day outside in the back yard raking leaves and collecting pecans.


We collected a bucket of pecans and bagged up several bags of leaves before the kids started playing in the piles.

(They helped bag up some leaves first.)

And I gave the lavender a "haircut" so I could replenish the greenery on the old Peace Wreath.

I considered making a Rosemary wreath but I decided to work with what I have....I'm very pleased with the results.

Emi cooked up some Hobo Packs to go with our sandwiches for lunch.

While the kids napped, Scott and I wrapped gifts....and then later we did the Advent activity.
