Last Post of the Year or Putting Together

The fourth puzzle of the holidays is currently under construction; these are the first three finished up to this point.

Between puzzle three and puzzle four, we had a little ginger bread house decorating contest. Here are the finished products.

Tamales

The annual tradition of tamale making has begun. The sauce is made; the pork is shredded. The masa needs mixing and the corn husks need soaking, and then the assembly will commence.

Recital

We enjoyed Rebekah’s recital tonight. She played “Sing Noel, Noel!” It was a festive evening, and the first of several evening events this weekend, from the Star Wars opening to our youth Christmas party.

They’re All Home!

And, of course, the games come out pretty quick.

But the games will have to be paused tonight as Rebekah has a piano recital! Hopefully, I’ll have a few pictures sometime soon.

1st Snow of the Season

The forecast called for less than a 1/10 of an inch. They were a little off.

Music

This is a shameless plug for an album that Lauren contributed to.

Currently it is available for purchase here. But soon it will also be available at other music services like iTunes.

Happy Thanksgiving

It has been good to have both of the girls home from college. We began the annual Thanksgiving puzzle the night Lauren got home and finished Thanksgiving morning.

We enjoyed a Thanksgiving feast with some good friends from church.

Tonight we are hosting all the college age kids who are in on break for an evening of fellowship and worship, and some time today we are commencing the Christmas decorating. And then unfortunately, we have to take Jenna and Lauren back on Sunday after church. But thankfully, we will get them home again in about two and a half weeks.

While it is time to start listening to Christmas music around here, I wanted to share a song that Lauren plays piano on if you are interested.
