It's incredible to me that we're already 4 days into December! So much to do, so much to think about, so much going on...!
We spent a wonderful Thanksgiving with my parents, 3 of the brothers, and my uncle, aunt, and cousin at my parents' house. What a spread it was! Everyone had a hand in making the festive meal. We had more rolls than we could eat, and so many desserts, they lasted for days!
We have so much to be thankful for this year! I am so grateful to have Andrew home, for one thing. And now we have a baby on the way and a new life outside the Army. Lots of uncertainties, and that's the only certain thing sometimes... But it's such a wonderful life!
We're already moving into the Christmas season. The tree's up and the cinnamon candles are burning. Our Netflix queue is full of Christmas movies and we've been practicing Christmas songs for our church ensemble for weeks, now.
Our first performance was last Sunday as a kick-off to the holiday series at church, A Charlie Brown Christmas. And every Sunday through December, our ensemble will be caroling in the season, both on the stage, and after church during the fellowship/mingling time. "We" are my dad, Andrew, me, Jenny, and Tyler & Shelley Cook. It's been lots of fun so far... It even "snowed" at church when we sang White Christmas!
Ooh...I haven't made an advent chain, yet...
