Although we have celebrated Christmas this past week with some, we will really celebrate Christ's Nativity on Dec 25th (old calendar) or Jan 7th (new calendar)....so just 10 more days.It's my cute little nephew Isaac's first Christmas...my sister got him some sweaters at H & M (a Swedish clothing company).
We met up with my parents, sisters and cousin's family at Krohn's conservatory. They have a manger with sheep, a donkey and cow...and a sign that says "Keep Christ in Christmas." We went to Andy's Mediterranean Grill for lunch after. My dad used to work for Old World Bakery and deliver pita there. What an awesome place...their homemade pitas are SO good. As we left I saw a shelf of hookahs...glass smoking thingies...all kinds of pretty glass colors: purple, blue, yellow, red. I wish I'd taken a photo of it.
My sister-in-law and I sat and crocheted together, while the kids played. Hannah got Apples to Apples (the kids version)...we ALL like playing it! Olivia got Sorry, which I've played a lot over the past few days. We just completed a snowman puzzle together.
* One more week off work for me, so I'm sewing, baking, scrapbooking, etc. Just enjoying making things. I wish we'd get some good snow...I want to go sledding!
Life is not for the faint of heart, and yet... - It's been 18 days. My Husband and I are weary and fighting faintheartedness. But yet in Christ we have hope. Lord have mercy on us all.
