Preparing

Advent has begun, and we are preparing. Monte B.'s favorite decoration (thoughtfully purchased for mama and daddy last year) was placed with care...



Saving for a Samaritan's Purse project, reminding us all (especially the shortest among us dreaming only of packages) to think of others...

We began our Jesse Tree advent celebration and have also started some of our favorite Christmas tales. The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is a good reminder
to "begin at the beginning" with His story.


My kitchen windowsill, adorned...

...and the centerpiece of the season.
