Busy Christmas Elves!!

Rocky Road to Bethlehem, First Story in ":Light in the Lantern"

   We have been silent on-line.  As you know, each year from Halloween until Christmas we are busy busy busy!  Taking a whole month of studies to make gifts for loved ones.  I started the Wynstone press stories for Christmas early.  They are correlated to advent weeks-the first week being elemental-which is earth such as stones.  The second week is plants and the third week is animals..and finally humans.  After I read the story my eight year old was inspired to put out Ostheimer nativity set out early and make the "rocky" road to Bethlehem. This is the first story of the book.  We are also needing to get ready for St. Nicks day-and this is why I started this other book early.  A great family project was this Christmas wreath, my husband brought us home a wreath and he provided the electrical lights to it (always handy to have an electrician for a husband!) and the kids and I collected pinecones outside and various other goodies around the house and added it.  We had great fun.  Right now we are busy knitting Christmas winter hats for gifts and making angels for our own tree.  I will be posting those next!  Thought you would enjoy the picture of my baby boy fallen asleep in my daughters arms-this was after a hard day of knitting and crafts.  We are also preparing for our big annual Christmas party, coming up fast.  My children always have many Christmas songs prepared to sing and play at the piano and around the fire with the guitars.  By the way, dear friends, Happy Thanksgiving to you- I know I have ALOT to be thankful for.  On Thanksgiving we will be thanking the Guadalupe for bringing my husband and father of my children home.  We had split up for a short time but through much prayers...magic...and the support of our friends at church-he came back as the best and most wonderful husband ever....he was already the best father!  You may have seen the 7 foot Guadalupe I painted in the yoga studio that my husband designed and made for me.  We continue to be blessed by this loving presence in our lives and home.  Hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving!  Aurore
