Wake Up Wednesday

Last month's Wake Up Wednesday challenge was to write down what you were thankful for each night.  It was helpful to end the day on an uplifting note.  I've needed the extra push to stay positive lately.  It's been over two months of feeling sick all the time.  I even wake up in the night a lot due to heartburn and reflux.  However, the point is, I have way more to be thankful for than to complain about.  My grandpa Norb used to say, "If that's all the worse you got it, then you got it made."  Amen grandpa :)

This week's challenge - or rather this month's for us - is going to be to carry out our good deed advent.  If you don't know what I'm talking about it's HERE.  We're doing little acts of service each day to celebrate  Christmas.  The boys and I have started and I figure I'll just report some of our fun experiences each week.

So far the boys have cleared the dinner table, visited an elderly couple, and bought a gift for the new baby.  I've changed up the list a little.  I really want them to be excited about this baby, so I thought that letting them pick out a gift would be fun.  They walked up and down the aisles of the toy store the other day and finally settled on a cute shape toy that they figured would be good for a girl or boy.

This is our third year using Rolos as our treat in the advent calendar.  I secretly hope the as the boys grow older and they see a Rolo that they will think about doing something kind for others.

I hope you're already having a great Christmas season.  Thanks for stopping by.
