So, Stella got a new dress-up dress, a new dress-up storage... thing. (That Sid and I made by re-purposing a craigslist dresser, inspired by something I saw on Pinterest). Also a pair of the cutest little navy blue corduroy pants (I went into Osh-Kosh for jeans and came out with cords). And the book The Clown of God, by Tomie DePaola.
Bruce got a wooden train set (which he couldn't wait to open and play with). A Higher chair (since he loved Stella's so much, and since he wanted to sit AT the table with us during meals). A new pair of jeans, and his book is The Story of Jesus which is a little golden book.
And I was super proud of myself because I surprised Sid and got him a GPS. He loves it. And I love it. And it still makes me smile when I think of his reaction when he opened it!
He got me a date to go pick out new boots. Cow
Since it was a Sunday we also did the church thing. You know since it's about Him and all. We waited to do gifts after church, and Henry came with Kerri. It was lovely!
I am so abundantly blessed by my God and my Family. I am so thankful that Jesus would come. And as I was reminded so many times this season He came as baby, but He didn't stay one. He grew up, to die on a cross. And that is why I can celebrate His coming!
