I love getting Christmas cards from friends old and new. Seeing the kids stop to look at photo cards and read family newsletters while eyeing tins of Christmas cookies is always a pretty sight.
I am so happy we were able to keep up with the daily readings for our Jesse Tree ornaments. It's fascinating to go through the genealogy and history of Jesus. It has helped all of us prepare in a special way for the excitement to come.
Since the older kids can run across the street and skate, the little ones have to find something to do. These two had a snack break after playing "Secret Agents." Gabe reads things to Jane and gives her instruction, and she follows him around doing whatever he says!
