Yesterday was the first Sunday of Advent! The Christmas season is officially here. Scott’s office moved to another location last weekend, and he was busy with the move all last week except for Thanksgiving Day and Saturday. Needless to say, it was not a very relaxing holiday weekend for us. But he loves his new office and I can’t wait to see it! Maybe I can drag all four girls in to see daddy one day! We always make waves over there at the office building whenever I do that. Last time, people were seriously turning right around and foregoing their lunch outings to gawk at us. Nothing to see here, folks. Just a mama duck and all of her little ducklings fighting over who gets to press the elevator buttons.
Anyway, due to our crazy week last week, we have none of our holiday decorations up yet. And we failed to get the Advent Wreath out in time as well. Not a good start. But, I just got the proofs for our Christmas cards, and I cannot wait for them to arrive!
Scott had dressed the girls that day, and he always dresses them alike (they were all in overalls). I swear if he had is way, the girls would all have their own family uniforms a la von Trapp family from The Sound of Music. They looked so cute, I just had to plop a quilt down in the yard and take some Christmas pictures. I dressed Rhea, that is why she doesn’t match. But to be fair, she doesn’t have any overalls.
My very talented sister Rachel is responsible for the design. She crafted the entire card, and her inspiration was Matyo embroidery, which is from Catholic Hungarian folk art.
Merry Christmas from our family to yours! I hope you are blessed as we prepare to celebrate the Nativity of our Lord!
