our christmas season thus far:
church christmas party* it was announced that we could wear costumes if we wanted for our night in bethlehem. reagan heard "costumes" and immediately decided that darth vader was obviously one of the magi. wise men came from far away and at least one came from long ago and a galaxy far, far away. scarlett wanted to be mary so i put her in a robe with stars. my great effort was not wasted.
does it get better than this?
and one more, olan mills style:
nativity* the kids have also put their special touch around the house:
the real reason there was no room in the inn:
christmas decor* i am a fan of white lights but scarlett wanted "gorgeous, beautiful colored lights, not GROSS white lights". in my Christmas spirit, i caved and got a few strands. and then we haphazardly threw them on the bushes like the rednecks we are.
only 13 days till christmas. time to start shopping.
