We lit the last candle on our Advent wreath. The middle candle represents Jesus as the Christ-light which helps us in our family to remember what Christmas means to us when we're enjoying the Christmas festivities.
Tomorrow our local grandchildren will be over as we shall be looking after them some of the time during the school holidays, as usual. Hopefully, we'll be able to get out and about with them. Below is their Advent calendar and their home-made cards in a corner of our home. Our children will be with us at different times over the holidays and we're also looking forward to seeing a sister-in-law and her husband who are coming over from Italy to stay with their son and family.
Mary, Joseph and the babe, Jesus
