For those that don't know what Advent is, it is derived from Latin word meaning coming. The Lord is Coming.
I also have to get the Advent wreath down from the attic this week and place it on the table with the 4 candles in it. We will say a prayer each Sunday as we light the candles. I found a neat site containing blessings and prayers during Advent. Catholic Mom has some wonderful ideas as well for Advent that I am going to do with the girls.
