last week's highlights

I almost can't believe how busy we were last week!

We made lots of homemade bread braids (Chas learned to braid!) for friends' Christmas presents.

My little sister came home from her mission.

We went to work Christmas parties and friend Christmas parties. 

We had scones and hot chocolate at Chas' parent's house. 

We found out the gender of little cryings (I promise the announcement is coming soon!). 

We ate margherita pizzas and gelato for my mom's birthday. 

All day Saturday, we got to film and interview people behind-the-scenes at the Mormon Tabernacle Christmas concert. 
(I was this close to Jane Seymour!)

I dyed my hair.

Yesterday, we had a family party for Rosie's homecoming and a second Thanksgiving.

Last night, we had a yummy ham dinner with Chas' family, set up the nativity, read the Christmas story scriptures, and sang every single Christmas hymn (including one Chas' dad wrote himself!). 

...I need a nap.

Aww this sounds like such a christmassy week! How lovely is that. I can imagine in a few years you'll be writing about the nativity play that your little cryings has been involved with and just how adorable he/she (can't wait to find out which!) was in their role..
It's lovely hearing about people getting really involved with christmas activities.I don't do anything until christmas day. But it sounds sweet :)
