Advent Day Twenty One

Today's ornament: A brick wall
This one was homemade by us.  We took red and black legos to make this one.  I let Arlington make it how ever she wanted to.
 This one is to represent the wall that was built around Jerusalem.  

"Surely I come quickly: Amen.  Even so, come Lord Jesus."  Revelation 22:20

Today was another beautiful day.  Really - we have been very lucky with the weather this December.  I am sure that just jinxed us.  We have had mostly days with sun and mild weather, and have been able to get outside - especially with Scooby - daily.  It has been great.

Today Arlington and I worked on a fun project for her class.  This year, her teacher is doing "Secret Snowflakes".  They were all assigned another classmate, and they have to make a card for them.  It can be any size, and be completely creative, so it was right up Arlington's ally.  We went out this morning and got the supplies to make the card.  She decided to make it poster board size (folded in half to make a card).  It came out very cute.  She worked all afternoon on it.  Then we had to wrap it like a present and she will take it to school.  She got one of her friends as her Secret Snowflake, so she was very excited.

Tonight we went to a Christmas party and had a great time.  It was adults only, so that made it even better.  The food was fabulous, and it was great to have adult conversation without wondering who was touching the breakable stuff.

Tomorrow is a very rare down day.  Not much going on, and I love it.  A week before Christmas.  Next week at this time, Mat and I will be getting everything ready for Santa's arrival - my favorite night of the year.
