Pre-Holiday Links and Resources -Advent 2018 and Christmas

With Thanksgiving this week, Advent is following quickly behind it!

But besides the busy preparation for Christmas, there are a lot of things we can do to really observe the season of Advent! Over the years I have collected links and resources for the holidays that I thought would help me and my family prepare our hearts and spirits to celebrate the birth of Baby Jesus.  I haven't done everything on this list.  Some of it is a wish list, but there was something in every link that I thought was worthwhile.

Perhaps first on the list is actually getting our homes ready for the holidays:
Holiday Grand Plan or join their Yahoo Group E-mail List Declutter and Clean!
Also DeClutter and Organize on Facebook. 

and get your planner ready~  Advent and Christmas Planner from Catholic Icing or Advent Planner from Wildflower and Marbles.

My Latest on

Less than a mile from my destination I had to stop the van for another red light. I wanted to turn right, but I noted the right lane was blocked with orange construction barrels. Oncoming traffic was fast and steady. I just didn’t think I could make the turn, avoid the barrels and get up to speed in a safe manner before the oncoming cars overtook me! So I waited.
But apparently, the guy in the truck behind me saw things differently.
