It's beginning to feel alot like Christmas
Just wanted to share some pictures of what is going on around our house this month. It has been a lot of fun, and a lot of mess, but that's okay. We are doing a Jesse Tree and it helps keep us on track each day as to why we celebrate Christmas- which of course isn't all the yummy treats and presents. It is hard though to teach a five year old that Christmas isn't about whacha gonna get, but about what Christ gave for us. They are both learning, and by God's grace they will get it.
I must say, I do dream of being cooped up in a warm cabin in the mountains of Tennessee with snow falling all around outside, as the crackling fire is burning in the fire place. The children playing simple games and playing quitely as Kris and I read books. But God has given me south Georgia humidity that is slightly chilly and a house of squealling, screaming, laughing,crying sweet little girls- and reading a books- yeah right- the only books around here come with pictures!! Maybe one day when we are all older we will get to that cabin in the snow, but for now I praise the Lord that we have a loud, crazy house full of noise.
Oh, and will all you pray for snow here. Katie is convinced it will snow on Christmas Eve.
