I've not updated in so long that it feels like I should have something monumental to say in order to break the silence. I don't, really. I just figured the only way to start blogging again is just to start. End the writer's block by just writing something.
We've had a good Advent season and a lovely Christmas. Some highlights were doing an Advent devotional and singing sacred Christmas songs with the girls, attending a Hanukkah workshop, having Nelson's parents visit (that's still going on), a family dinner with my parents, aunt and uncle, and grandmother on Christmas Eve eve, the Christmas Eve service at church, and Christmas Eve dinner with my parents.
We watched the Charlie Brown Christmas special more than once, and Sarah fell in love with "Hark the Herald Angels Sing." We used my hymnal to sing songs together during our school devotional time, and one night she pulled it out on her own to sing songs. She went with the children during our Christmas Eve service but later regretted it when she heard we had sung her favorite one.
I do have pictures to post later; right now it's a bit late in the evening and I need to clean the kitchen. I do plan to update more regularly from now on though. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to post a few pictures of our holiday fun, plus a few other photos that have been hanging out on the camera forever.
I signed up for a free "blogging class" that I found, so hopefully I'll be able to improve things around here and at my other blog. We''ll see.
Until next, I hope everyone had a merry Christmas. Now that we are in the twelve days between Christmas and Epiphany, I wish you ladies dancing and lords a-leaping and all that jazz. ;) I also wish you a happy New Year! I'm working on my goals for 2012 and breaking them down into weekly tasks, so I'll be posting more about that later.
