Our shared times this Advent Season

yes, I know it is later than anticipated.
With the horrid pneumonia (and hard coughing) being suffered in the house.... we focused on wellness this season~ but still made time for family togetherness and shared love. Advent for us was a good time among the "yuckies" that we were feeling. It particularly gave O something to get out of bed for, and an anticipation of some sort of surprise.
The activities were simple. The time was valuable. The moments were treasured.

day 7:: Talent Show ( Odin told jokes, Bjorn played the drums)
