Tonight we went downtown to the live Nativity, complete with pettyng animals. Elise loved the animals. It started to snow while we were down there. the snow just piled up on the llama and he didn't seem to mind. Love that wool. Elise even got to held baby Jesus. Inside we had cookies and cocoa, and warmed up and Corinna had her bottle. It was a good evening to reflect back on what the first Christmas was like.
This year I finished Winter Wonderland, and was able to get it to the quilter in time so that it could be quilted in time for Christmas. I mostly enjoyed doing the embroidery, but I am most happy that it is finished.
Elise & Corinna has been at our house helping us get ready for Christmas. First Elise dressed Ruthie, then they tried on hats. Next Elise made some cards. It takes a lot of concentration to write your name. Then the girls played with the gingerbread dolls. Yes they are ready for Christmas!
Last Thursday we drove up to Castle Rock to meet family for Gary's birthday. The trip turned out good, despite the snow in the Springs. Everyone had a good time. Tim is hiding his good time behind his menu... Rocket liked the corn bread and honey, and Elise like the rolls. No one left hungry.
Teach me your way, O LORD and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name. I will praise you, O LORD my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever. For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths of the grave. Psalm 86: 11-13
