  • Anderson was already dressed this morning when I walked through the house. I was on my way to go upstairs and start waking everyone up. It was good to see that he did already have his clothes on, yet it looked a bit like he had slept in his clothes. Possibly, I need to pull that iron back out-nah!
  • We were soon headed out to church. The music was the same as last weeks-the Christmas choir special. The sermon was different but the music was the same to give folks the opportunity to bring guests. Anyway, despite the beautiful music last week, when Anderson realized that the music was going to be the same, he exclaimed, "well, why did we come back?" 
  • I was in the nursery so I did miss the repeat performance. However, I did manage to finish up just in time for the last song. After church, the kids, Robby and I headed to our Sunday school class. Today was Christmas parties in our Sunday school classes, so we were pretty busy by the time the morning was over.
  • We had lunch at Nonna's house. They had spaghetti and the fixings for lunch. Then we celebrated Campbell's upcoming birthday with a birthday cake. After the kids played for a bit, we soon headed out.
  • Robby started to work on preparing food for tonight's shin dig while I took Reagan out shopping. She said maybe 4 words on the way to the stores, but after shopping at Old Navy, Target and Platos Closet, she chatted the entire way home.
  • We made it home in time for me to lay down for about 5 minutes before it was time to start getting ready and loading up food for our Christmas party with the Wilsons, Atwoods and Phillips. 
  • We had tons of food and lots of laughs during our party. I did make sure that I took my vest off for our group picture since I didn't want to have to retake it! I ate pretty much the entire time and especially loved Laryn's sweet oyster crackers. 
  • As we seem to do these days, we stayed out way too late. Once we made it home, we did some of our Christmas count down activities, and then it was finally bedtime for the crew. (And yes, it was time for a Christmas movie for me.)
