Yesterday we started getting ready for Christmas by decorating the tree. We try to wait as long as possible to enter into the "festive" part of Christmas. This morning the girls and I started wrapping the presents.
Tomorrow we'll decorate the house, the church and begin cooking. Thursday there are services all day, with Holy Supper Christmas eve. Christmas morning we will celebrate Liturgy for Nativity and then go to my folks for the day.
The picture is of the girls wrapping gifts. It's funny because this picture looks so calm and orderly, when in fact there was scotch tape, wrapping paper and ribbon all over the living room!
