Advent! Advent! Ein Lichtlein brennt!

We've been falling behind on the blog, but only blogospherically speaking -- we're still celebrating, and right now, we're celebrating advent. You can learn more about it here. We imitate the German and Austrian cultural traditions and skip the vestal purple and liturgical readings.

Here's the advent wreath.

Here everyone is getting ready to dive into the bunte teller. We also attended the annual Adventsingen at the Provo Tabernacle where Rob and kids performed. I'm ashamed to admit I didn't even get any pictures of the kids in their trachten. They looked fantastic and they did a wonderful rendition of "Kling, Gloekchen Kling" and "O Kinderlein Kommet" with friends Hanna und David. Curtis has a complete report. You can see it here and admire the handsome couple in their dirndl and jacke. Time to light your candles and eat your lebkuchen!

Grandma GG would be happy to see her little red Christmas dish being put to such good use. I'll tell her about it.
