-- Rayna had a special date with Daddy to go see the Nutcracker!
-- The kids went Christmas caroling with some friends from church:
-- We had some Wingate students over, and taught them the Bowl game. :)
-- Strider had a fantastic time at his youth group's Christmas party (no pics)
-- I had an amazing 24-hour vacation (no pics)
-- We had our first injury-related ER visit with one of the kids (can't believe we've gone 12 years!) (No pics, and not a great memory)
-- Family times most nights involve reading "Bartholomew's Passage" Advent story, and watching our 2 little monkeys play together and hug each other. :)
Now off to do more Christmas-y things! (And make dinner.... and do the laundry.... The ordinary and extraordinary blend together at this time of year -- just like Majestic Savior Baby Jesus and the straw in the manger, right?)
