Sisters, Sisters, There Were Never so Devoted Sisters

"White Christmas" was a favorite at our home this past week.  Cora loves the pretty dresses and sings, "wish I was in the arny now"!

Her mother and I are very happy that she likes this Christmas favorite.  Christmas was so very fun this year as you can see in these pictures.

The only fracas was over who got to push the new baby stroller or shopping cart.  Thanks Uncle Kristopher!

Christmas Lights

St. Louis Zoo has lights at night during the Christmas season.  We enjoyed walking around looking at all the beautiful lights with our daughter and family.

My granddaughters sure do love riding the carousel.  That is a winner every time.

This will be my last post until after Christmas, so ...

Advent Fun

Oh Lolli Lolli Candy Shop
We spent last Friday and Saturday with our daughter and family.  They have planned a special event with their daughters every day of advent.  One of the events this weekend was seeing Christmas lights at the St. Louis Zoo.  More about that on another blog.  Before the zoo, we visited this candy shop.

It is a small little shop full of many different candies.  So many that it made it hard to choose from, that's for sure.  I chose 1/4 lb. double chocolate malt balls.  Yummy.

Kate & Cora deciding what to choose.

Christmas Time is Here

The house is decorated ready for Christmas.  My theme upstairs is white accent to go with green and maroon.  This is my fireplace mantel.  The following pictures are a closeup of an ornament and beading, table centerpiece and our Christmas tree (this picture was taken with my blackberry so it is not quite as good).

Still buying Christmas presents, but I am getting close to being finished.  No snow yet, but very cold weather this week.

As I am blogging, I am watching Radio City Christmas from New York City.  Enjoying the songs, movies, lights and everything that goes with the season.

Our church choir is singing the "Messiah" this Sunday.  I've had a cold for the past week so I'm not sure I'll be able to participate.  I hope so.  It is challenging when I am well!

Friends from Kenya

We spent the weekend with this wonderful couple, Tim and Lori Myrick, from Kenya.  They are missionaries that I met last July when I traveled to Kenya.  My husband has met with them several times when he has traveled to Kenya.  They have hosted our teams and have been a real blessing to us as we travel in Kenya.

We were so happy to visit with them while they are in the states and look forward to seeing them again the next time they are here. 

I admire their love for Christ and the commitment and sacrifice they and their children have made for his service.
