Motherhood. Lawyer-dom. And maybe a few nice recipes.

Later Lights Angel AJS Chubby Cherub Cherub Check In 

Christmas has officially landed at our household.  We have Christmas lights outside and in, and a variety of other decorations that Claire is systematically trying to destroy one bedazzled candy cane at a time.  Avery is receiving an extensive education about the first Christmas (thank you, Catholic school), and so I frequently hear her reenacting the birth of Jesus with our many child-friendly nativity scenes.  Whilst playing with her Little People nativity the other day, I overheard her saying “Mary and Joseph rode to Bethlehem on a donkey and Jesus was born in a gross barn.”  I am assuming she is taking some poetic license with the “gross” part.  We have already been on many a neighborhood jaunt to view Christmas lights.  Claire is unimpressed, but I love hearing Avery exclaim “beautiful” and “lovely” from the backseat in reverent tones.  We have a general rule around our house that Avery is not allowed to ask us to buy her stuff.  Although we haven’t applied this to asking for gifts from Santa, she seems to think the rule applies.  Resultant, we receive many back-door requests for certain toys, e.g, “Mommy, I am wishing and wishing on the evening star that Santa will bring me that dress I saw at the Disney store.”  She knows what she’s doing. 

I am excited to see what else this month has in store for us.  Hopefully a party or two and perhaps even some Christmas  baking with my own little elves.  Merry Christmas season, friends.  If you need to hear the Christmas story via AJS, you know where to find us.
