Christmas music is on the radio, though I am already tired of the same ten songs the dj's are compelled to play. I keep saying I am going to load my Christmas music on my mp3 player, but I have yet to do it.
This evening we took Isaac and our friends' daughters to a Christmas pageant that some of my students were in. After the program we drove around looking at lights and went downtown to see the city's Christmas tree.
I read Isaac Olive the Other Reindeer by Vivian Walsh before bed tonight, and afterwards I brought the Christmas books out of storage. And I predict that Dave the Elf will make his appearance tomorrow morning.
Tomorrow we have the church children's Christmas party and I have bought our Angel Tree gifts and pajamas to donate to Foster Friends. I am also making plans to take Isaac to see "Miracle on 34th Street" when they play it at the theater downtown.
Tonight Matt and I said while driving down our friend's street to look at lights that it seemed like just last week we were trick-or-treating at those same houses. I know that in a few weeks we will wonder where this time before Christmas went. I want to slow down and enjoy it. I am trying to think of some different activities we can do this year to help make the time special. Mostly, I just want to have quiet time to relax with Isaac and Matt during this hectic season.
