Here's what been happening around here, as we prepare to celebrate Christmas...
Our elf, Bingo, arrived on the first of the month. It's just as much fun for the kids to find him now as it was when he first arrived four years ago. Ruby's even gotten into it!
Her favorite place for Baby Jesus? In the donkey's carriage.
*This close* to finishing The Order of the Phoenix.
At least somebody likes to clean around here.
New library books always give us heart eyes.
Twin day at school!
Brothers on our bed on a Saturday morning.
Song practice for the church kids' Christmas performance.
Going to school.
Coming home from school. (Sunshine! Green grass!)
Quick and easy when Dad's away for dinner.
Reed volunteered to bake a cake for the birthday party for Jesus at church. He's serious about bakin'.
I heart our church. So much.
Ruby said no. Maybe next year?
Brad (and his beard) hosting the holiday family night lip sync contest at church.
John Lennon's Happy Christmas as lip sync'd by Josh & Friends (including Drew's and Reed's puppet handiwork).
My heart grew three sizes...
Reed & BFF Jocelyn at their classroom holiday party.
Making cinnamon ornaments.
What a Glorious Night! What a glorious sight!
Pie Face at Drew's classroom holiday party.
Brad took his girls on a lunch date to Olive Garden.
It's been a full month. This is the first time in a long time, though, where it's been full and relaxing, not full and busy. Good stuff. Fun stuff. Life-giving stuff. And the excitement is just beginning!
