Last year, I really enjoyed the Preparing for Nativity series I began on December 1st, so I've decided to do it again!
We are starting out our preparations with a BANG! Fr John and I picked up the materials necessary to build a mantle yesterday, and have begun the project today. I think that Fr John will have the majority of the work of putting it together done tonight, so I imagine that we'll have it all finished by the end of the week. It will be so exciting to hang our stockings this Christmas! Hopefully, I'll be able to take some pictures soon - sadly, I dropped the camera last night and broke the lens:(
