We did have a lovely Christmas Carol Service at our church, but the one in this post was put on by Mathis and Kate (and they were very serious about it!). Above you can see the decorations, including last years craft project and the pine branch that Mathis found somewhere and brought home. It is still "living" in a jar of water on his windowsill.
Kate, so prim and properly, dressed up for church with her baby ever so quietly resting beside her!
Mathis preparing for the sermon.
Making bulletins for everyone :)
By the looks of Mama's face, things aren't going well!
A stern look from pastor to misbehaving toddler (can you tell I had a blast watching all this going on??)
This is the way most of our days go ...lost of dress up, lots of reenacting anything that's happened lately, lots of serious play .... the work of childhood :)
