The Advent Calendar

"Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas."

We spend the weekend with our "far away family", babysitting while they went through their things that just arrived from Abu Dhabi.  I am so tired but SO GLAD we did it.  They will be moving soon and we won't see them as often.  The best part is that THIS year, they will be Here for Christmas.  Of course having a new baby helps the celebration also.

The kids were so happy to be back in their old home. They seem so comfortable there but are talking about their next move and another new house.

They just found the new Advent calendar, so PopPop was helping to get caught up.

Our little J Bird wasn't feeling well, so he'll be visiting the doctor tomorrow.

This guy was sporting another new hat.  He loves hats!

Spending time with the new baby was great.  He's 19 days old and loves to look all around.  I did have to share him, but still had lots of cuddling time.

Can't remember which Christmas carol I was singing to him, but he seemed to like it.  Just can't get enough of holding him.  I could look at him all day.
