Tonight we had a tree-trimming party with the in-laws and the out-laws. D's two sisters and brother-in-law were able to be here along with his parents and my mother and grandmother, so it was a full house. K was completely beside herself with excitement and has gone off the deep end; she's upstairs crying it off right now. We read the Advent 4 collect and sang the blessing as usual, but had pizza again instead of soup, and I think that not having a homemade meal really takes away from the prayerful feeling of the Advent dinners. I will try harder next year to be on the ball with the meal preparations.
Below are some gingerbread people K made this morning with the help of my parents. I think they're pretty awesome!
