The Christmas season is here! Yesterday after church we trimmed the tree. Well, mostly I did because Blake and Evelyn were more interested in running around. But with the MoTab playing in the background and twinkle lights sparkling. it was our best Christmas tree decorating experience yet.
We celebrated 1st Advent yesterday with a candlelit dinner and told stories about Jesus. I have never seen Blake so focused at dinner before. We could tell he was really grasping what we were telling him and I hope it has made for a good start to this season. In fact this morning at breakfast he said, "Mom, tell me a story about Jesus." I happily obliged.
And we are starting our Christmas Book advent today. So excited!!
Over the weekend, I got to go to City Creek to see my friend Heather Farrell at her book signing for Walking With the Women in the New Testament. We met at Camp Vega 10 years ago and she was one of the only reasons I survived that summer. She is so real and it was fun catching up with her and her family. Plus, I got to do some Christmas shopping sans kids and see beautiful Temple Square. It seems extra stunning this year. I can't wait to go back with my family.
Here's to a great December!!
