It's been a busy couple of days around here!
Yesterday we finished the last minute Christmas shopping and went to the library to replenish our book habit. The girls and I made dipped pretzels - something we do every year. I must say, it's not nearly as messy as it was when they were toddlers!
Last night, we went to my mom's extended family Christmas gathering. There was food and a visit from Santa and family members crammed into every corner.
We lit the advent candles at our church's early Christmas Eve service. Our friend Sarah sang Oh Holy Night and Rachel listened to that big voice in complete awe. Katherine helped our pastor light the candles during Silent Night and it was beautiful, as always.
Afterward we posed for the rare family picture.
