Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8


One word, that's all it takes to sum up Regan tonight at her first School Christmas Program. She has been buzzing about it for weeks. It is a big deal for the kids. They practiced during music time at school and then the last couple of weeks there have been extra rehearsals in place of gym and some other activities.

They sang songs and some of the kids even had speaking parts. A few weeks ago, Regan came home with a slip saying she was going to be doing one of the speaking parts. She immediately told me to send it back. I was a little suspicious, as I was quite sure the teacher wouldn't assign' something like this unless the kids volunteered. After some investigative conversations, I figured out she didn't want a speaking part because that required wearing a costume. And, a costume meant not wearing her 'Santa' dress. 'Cuz it is all about the dress, you know! LOL!
(Paul and I discussed the situation briefly and decided now was not the time or age to start forcing her to follow through on her commitments.)

And the stockings were hung by the chimney with care....doesn't this just look warm and inviting? I got the stockings hung up a couple of days ago and thought I would snap some pictures today. Have I said how much I love my fireplace?? It adds to the ambiance of Christmas, but I also just love being able to curl up in front of it when our harsh Michigan winter leaves me chilled to the bone.

How cute she was! And how proud you must be! Love the fire place by the way! There is just something about it when you can get something hot to drink and big quilt and snuggle up! It's my favorite winter past time! And we don't even get snow! LOL!! ;)
