The Christmas season has begun at our house. This morning the advent count-down calendars went up, the first Good Deeds slips were chosen, and the girls set up their mini Christmas trees in their rooms. Rachel asked if we had any Christmas books, so I hauled out our ridiculously large pile to read.
For several years the girls and I have gone to a local Gingerbread Festival. We always have a lot of fun, so this year we invited a bunch of friends from church to come along. It was a terrific way to spend the morning.
Rachel went to the festival with Granny and Poppy yesterday, but she was perfectly happy to be returning today. She is not particularly interested in gingerbread decorating, but she does enjoy the candy and icing!
