As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2: 4-5

Christmas Fun

The little girls are thoroughly enjoying the Christmas season. We have few ornaments left on the bottom of our tree, and they daily take the presents out from under the tree and shake and feel them all. I am enjoying, though, dressing them up and taking them out--thanks to Kay Kay and Aunt Patricia.

Charlotte in her Christmas dress and spiffy Christmas coat from Kay Kay.
Hannah in her fancy dress (with "jewels!") and sweet coat from Aunt Patricia.
Another thing I have been enjoying this season? FINISHING THE STOCKING!!! It's taken me almost 5 years, but it's done!!! Hannah, now used to her big Santa stocking, declared it "ugly"and "the only one without Santa on it." Said she didn't want it. To give it to Charlotte. Too bad, so sad. Hate to break it to you, Hannah. It's already got YOUR name on it!

Today was another marathon day of Christmas activities. We got up bright and early for a Saturday and headed to church for breakfast with Santa. This is where Hannah spent most of her time. Scared. to. death. Wouldn't even go near Santa for the first hour. (Love the dress...thank you, again, Aunt Patricia!)

After all the other children sat on Santa's lap, she whispered in my ear that she wanted to come see Santa after all. I think the candy canes may have had something to do with it!

Charlotte still wasn't too sure about Santa. This was as close as we could get without a full blown meltdown.

but finally, she stopped crying long enough for us to get a picture

From the breakfast with Santa, we sprinted to Spivey Hall for Sarah's Spivey Hall Children's Choir Christmas concert.

Luckily, Nanny and Paw Paw helped us out and watched the little girls for us so I didn't have to spend the concert pacing the hallway chasing Charlotte. When I got there after the concert, three of them were wiped out!

But Hannah, as usual, was going strong!

We are having our Christmas concert in church tomorrow and then we hit the homestretch. One more week to go and then two weeks off!!!
