With Maggie in tow, we went to decorate gingerbread houses with two other families that we've become close with through church. Five kids and two gingerbread houses and a million little candies and a ton of messy, yummy icing - it was a blast and the kids all had such a good time. And what's a gingerbread party without a little dance party to none other than Taylor Swift?(God Bless Maggie. And I'm not just saying that because she is a loyal blog-reader. We are all so thankful for her in our lives. Lily is just in love with their entire family! Who can blame her?)The moms that we were with today are such good women, and such great moms. It is always nice to spend time with them, and reminds me yet again, how lucky I feel to be a part of the Westminster Presbyterian family.
Funny Lily story. We read a wonderful book called Christmas in the Barn by Margaret Wise Brown (you may know her as the author of Good Night Moon). It's such a dear story with beautiful illustrations-we highly recommend it. The words include "what child is this who is born here?" Lily screams every time we read it, "It's BABY JESUS!" Nothing gets by her.
