Prepare, Prepare, Get Ready, Get Set


Prepare, prepare, get ready, get set.

Prepare, prepare, and don’t forget.

This is a special time of year.

Christmas is coming, Advent is here.

Prepare, prepare, make ready, make way,

to hear the story of Christmas Day.

Prepare, prepare, the time has come,

soon we will welcome Mary’s son.


I heard this on an online Advent Calendar from Ireland – there are two short audios, both recorded by a young Irish boy and they are both lovely. Listen HERE if you would like.




And One More About the Last But Not Least

My posts this week have been about my kids.

Nine minutes and counting and we are squeezing four fifths of the family into the car with:

  • luggage
  • some boredom busters for me and the youngest
  • luggage
  • and like, a lot of presents.


And two dogs.

Which is where my son comes in.

You know, right now, and this may change because he’s only nine, but my favorite thing about our Joe is that he is very, very expansive.

Expensive too sometimes (puppies with a pedigree? I said never again…eye roll).

He’s a smart guy so he’ll figure out how to afford himself eventually.

But family and friends who really know him would agree.


I really like that.

Not sure how that characteristic will go in the car with said items…but, to grandmother’s house we go!
