“Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”
Merry Christmas to each of you!
May God's gift of love affect every part of your life in this season and the coming year!

It is very exciting to finally learn how to undo a stitch or two or rows and rows of stitches. My children have stopped asking, "Mom why are you undoing the whole thing?"

Christmas Concert rehearsal is at the top of the list today.
The children, and good friend Nathan, will perform a thirty minute block of time at a local church.
What a joy to watch them give of their talents to the community at Christmas time.
The house has been filled with all things Christmas hymns and what a glorious sound that is.
Check back for pictures within the next couple of days.

I decided it is a new month, no football, no educational co-ops, most activities slowed due to the wonderful season we are beginning, surely I will have time to visit this little space and leave a sweet remembrance of what is happening on our journey.
Ugh! I already messed up and it was only day TWO.
Remembering my original goal of documenting, for my children, in word and picture the ordinary happenings of life, it is comforting to know they will not be bothered by this mishap.
So, I would like to cash in my new mercy for today and carry on.
Today is cold, inside the house and out. It has been many years since we have had such a cold beginning to winter (or is it end to fall?). Be careful what you wish for.
A couple of us have had the stomach bug and several of us have colds.
Bring on the garlic and chicken soup. Dad has assured me we will not have a problem with vampires.
In the kitchen...a large pot of spaghetti and fresh bread.
Talk of Christmas cookies has begun.
Catching up on laundry after Thanksgiving travel.
Until tomorrow.....yes tomorrow!

Outside My Window...it is dark and the air is chilly.
I am thinking...I wish I had gone to get a Christmas tree today.
I am thankful for...family and time spent laughing and playing together.
From the learning rooms...we are correcting much work neglected from a very busy fall season.
From the kitchen...not much is happening...some of us have had the stomach flu.
I am wearing...jeans and very comfy shirt.
I am creating...a quilt!
I am going...to stay home~after two trips, of significant distance, in November.
I am reading...Message in a Bottle
I am hoping...for a relaxing and home bound December.
I am hearing...a lot of Christmas piano and string music.
Around the house...things are messy due to traveling over Thanksgiving.
One of my favorite things...is our bed. Our children commented recently, "You are addicted to your bed.", Yes we are!
