I should add that I bought the most adorable Christmas pajamas for the kids. But the pjs are fleece and it is 65 degrees today. Hence, the shirtless boys.
Another day with a little laughter, a little chaos, a few hurt feelings, some tears and a lot of joy. A special day to antipate the birth of the One that came to save us from ourselves. Another day to wonder, "Why did you do it, Lord? How could you leave perfection and dwell among us?" Another day to be thankful that through Christ Jesus' birth, life and death- we are made into something beautiful- crazy day by crazy day. Another wonderful day to celebrate knowing the Messiah.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Lydie (without missing a beat): I not a mon-ser! I a pumpkin! (with tilt of the head and a smile)~Nana: (Lydie dropped her ball under the china cabinet) Go ahead and reach under there and get your ball!
Lydie: No, I don't get dat ball. You need to get it. I no mess up my bow! (pointing to hair bow)~Toot: Lydie, you are the baby and we are the big brothers.
Lydie: I no the baby. I the princess.
~Mommy: Lydie, lay down it's time for bed.
Lydie: I car-red (scared) of dat bad guy. (pointing to a shadow from her dragonfly)
Mommy: Would you like me to get you a night light?
Lydie: Oh yes, Mommy! (squealing) Then I no car-red. Nope, no more car-red.
~Mommy: Lydie, are you a big girl?
Lydie: I no a big girl. I Diddy Joy (Lydia Joy), dat's all. I two, and I diddy Joy.

Updated: She sang beautifully. Not a lot of smiling and showing off like at home. She was taking her singing very seriously. But she looked out at the audience, completely unafraid, and sang proudly!
We have been dragging around here the past couple of days! We are trying to get our Christmas cards mailed (our address list was lost on our last hard drive that crashed!), playing in basketball games, buying birthday presents (Happy Birthday Uncle Rick and Mimi!!) and buying last minute Christmas presents and clothes.
