We spent Christmas Eve at Memere and Pepere's house. Here are Grace, Jack and Eve with their adorable cousins Rose (age 8) and Kimberlee (age 5) standing with Santa just outside of Memere and Pepere's house.

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
Our very favorite Christmas tradition is counting down the days until Christmas with our advent calendars, books and activities. Every morning we all gather together around our Christmas tree to read our advent books and to open a little doors or windows on our advent calendars. This is a tradition that my Mom started with me and it is one that I love passing on to my own children. Our advent activities are the highlight of our days leading up to Christmas.

Jack could hardly believe it when he woke up this morning to see a world of white outside! He was so excited to tell me that his "wish" had come true -- when he blew out the candles on his birthday cake he let me know that his wish was for snow. I am so very happy that Jack's birthday wish came true today. Jack, Eve and I had a great time playing in the snow and going sledding. When Grace came home from school this afternoon Jack couldn't wait to go sledding with his big sister too!
Jack is such a sweet brother. He pulled Eve in a sled all around our yard while singing, "Let it Snow."
