We're ready for Christmas!

Christmas activities begin this weekend. Friday night we will celebrate with Ed's family at our house. The menu will consist of a typical "Tampa" meal of Spanish Bean soup, deviled crab and Cuban Sandwiches--YUM! On Sunday, we will have our regular Sunday morning service as well as a candlelight service that evening. On Christmas day, we will celebrate at home and our good friends Owen and Joanne will join us. The day after Christmas mom and dad will arrive and we will celebrate with them. The shopping is done and we are sitting back and enjoying all the festivities! Claire and I try to make Christmas cookies every year. This year we found these Reindeer cookies in a magazine. We had so much fun making them.

The girls have one big present waiting for them out in the yard. Can you guess what it is?

Here's our house decorated for Christmas. Daddy and Claire put lights up outside this year. This is actually the back of our house but, we decorated this side because, it is the side that shows from the road and the church. Most people enter our house from these doors. I know it's kind of strange, but that's life in the parsonage!!

Our stockings are hung by the TV with care.

You know your a parent when you decorate your tree just so only to place a tacky contraption around the bottom of it just to please the young'ns! Our tacky contraptions of choice this year is a Mickey's Ski Slope.
