And time to get the Christmas cards in the mail!

Tonight we will meet a bunch of friends to sing and play Christmas carols at Children’s Hospital.

Tomorrow is my mama’s birthday. The kids and I are planning on going to do some Christmas baking with her. I guess I should open the boxes that came in from Amazon. There’s still four days until Christmas :) The air is definitely filling with excitement as we await the birthday of Our Lord!

I pray your week will be full of blessings! Love, Lori
