a neat tradition

Every morning (in December) the girls look forward to tearing off a new link in the Christmas chain. We made a construction paper chain to count down the days until his birth-day. We also focus on a different aspect of his character or name by reading different excerpts. It has been such a fun way to stay focused on the Gift, and not the many gifts. You can also see the blanket of white snow outside our apartment. Today never got above 22F, and the wind was sooofreezingcold. We are so very thankful for the amazing heat inside!!
p.s. Isn't Eden's camera smile classic?
