It's Christmas

The gifts are all wrapped, the suitcase is packed, and the goodies are ready to go.
We are off for a Christmas in North Carolina with Andrew's family.
May you have a very blessed Christmas and may Christ be the center of all of our gatherings.
"For unto us is born this day, in the city of David, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord."
Merry Christmas!

Christmas activities

We have had 2 of the busiest weeks of our year between last week and this week! On Saturday, a lot of my students played in 2 different Christmas recitals, I am so relieved to have that done! Then we went to a special Christmas production on Saturday night and then to Coldstone! (FYI, you can sign up for free birthday clubs at Coldstone, Baskin-Robbins, & Red Robin and get free stuff on your birthday!)

This week is finals week for Andrew and he needs a big prayer! He has a huge hebrew exam, a LOT of reading, and a couple of large papers that are all due this week! But yeahhhh - we're almost done with another semester!

This Sunday we have a special Christmas presentation that Andrew & I have helped put together. It involves our choir, orchestra, children's choir, various other musical groups and readers giving a special presentation of the Christmas story. We are hoping everything comes together well on Sunday morning and will be able to give a deep sigh of relief when it is over!
Then, we actually have a whole week to relax and breathe before Christmas!

it was very good! (it was even a double-decker)For dinner, we went to one of my favorite restaurants ~ Macaroni Grill

Thank you to my wonderful husband, who always makes celebrations special!
