"...How easy it is to start our day dominated by the thought of schedules or difficulties to confront, or awareness of where we'd failed the day before (or all of the above!). Seeing the day as given and full of promise doesn't usually dominate! Perhaps this is why the Church gives us this prayer in the morning, to remind us of the great fact: "He has come to his people and set them free!" Waking up with hope on our lips is more correspondent then worry - a truer position in front of the fact that all is given to draw us to Him." taken from the Canticle of Zechariah and Holly Peterson - Magnificat Advent Companion

The girls came into the kitchen today and announced that we would be having lunch in the dining room. I went in there to find the table set and the candlesticks out. They announced the guests: Lord Lucas, Sir Gabriel, Lady Molly, and Sirs Stormy and Sunny (the birds!). They served everything very elegantly, and when I finally noticed I heard Handel playing over the speaker in a beautiful symphony! The idea spawned from Monica's Grammar lesson on giving oral directions. She decided to investigate how to set a table and will be giving us an oral demonstration sometime next week or over the break.
Here are a few pics. Very cute.:)
