We finally got moved in and put up our
Christmas Tree on Wednesday night!!!!
I am posting this from India's computer
because mine is still broken.
While I DID manage to bake
two batches of cookies-
Peanut Butter Blossoms,
and Cherry Thumbprints,
I conceded defeat on the
Christmas Jammies issue.
Yes, my girls are wearing
STORE BOUGHT JAMMIES!!!
Tomorrow is Christmas and I still have
not baked the Spanikopita!
But, we are in our house,
with a tree,
and some decorations.
And my parents are here with us from Nevada.
Ahnalin and I were angels at the 5:00PM service
at our new church!
Our church does 4 different services on
Christmas Eve and the 5:00PM service
is specifically designed for young families.
So we were thrilled to be in the little
play called "Where Is Jesus?"
Both Ahnalin and I managed to behave
"angelically" for the evening, even though
it was a challenge. Heehee!!
After the early service,
the girls went home with my parents,
so they could get ready for Santa.
I heard that Ahnalin was especially angelic
before bed, preparing
the cookie plate for Santa,
and not begging to stay up later.
She was completely asleep by the time Don and I got home
from the 7:00 PM service!
Well, India and I are now snuggled up watching
while eating cookies and I am
having a tiny glass of wine.
I still have to wrap presents
for the morning.
My biggest present is being here,
in our own cozy house in Santa Rosa.
We are so thankful for this Christmas.
I would never recommend moving
right before Christmas,
especially if your hubby is responsible
for some Christmas services at church.
This has been the hardest move we have ever done,
but I am so very, very grateful.
Exhausted, but grateful.
I pray that you all have
a lovely Christmas,
filled with love,
and good memories.
I pray that you know you are deeply loved
by our Heavenly Father,
who sent His Only Son
little, sinful, us.
But He loves us.
Merry Christmas my friends.
