It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas . . .

This month is rushing by . . . here’s a quick pictoral update of some of the fun stuff that’s been keeping us busy . . .

We actually didn’t light our third candle of advent yet, since Kevin & I went out for dinner with another eMi staff couple last night.  It was supposed to be our Christmas party, but even with only three families at the office, we couldn’t find an evening that worked for all of us.  But it was a nice break, nonetheless.

I meant to do my last bit of Christmas shopping today, but didn’t feel motivated to go out in the cold again after coming home from volunteering a few hours in the school. The temperatures are hovering around -30 today.  Not horrible by Fort St. John standards, but cold enough for here.  The girls have a gymnastics “performance” later this afternoon, and until then, I’m catching up on a few of the things (like the blog!) that have gotten neglected in the Christmas busy-ness.  It’s a nice break . . .
