Our day looked like this...

We woke up and went to church. I was serving so we had to stay for both services. Sometimes it is difficult for the girls to have good attitudes about the second service but today they both actually wanted to stay, even past when I was done with my duties. After church we came home.  The girls played nicely with each other and then we ate a late lunch. I started to get some Christmas decorations out and helped the girls put their Christmas trees in their rooms. Justin came home we talked a few minutes to catch up and we all watched a new movie that some friends had given us. After that was done we had some quiet time. The girls played together in their room but Lydia kept coming out of her room to let me know how much her tooth was bothering her and how she wanted to go to the dentist tonight. I worked on the final preparations for our Advent worship time later in the evening. Emma took her bath and Lydia worked on making some cards. We ate dinner and then had family worship time. Justin played guitar for our worship and then we began our Jesse Tree Advent celebration. Lydia read the Bible passage Emma put the ornament card in the tree and then Lydia prayed. Lydia took her bath, I read a few stories and the girls went to bed.  It was a wonderful way to end a wonderful week of family togetherness.  We had a wonderful Thanksgiving break and  our hearts are full as we have so many things to be grateful for.
