What an amazing weekend! Even though it was a flurry of activity, it was awesome.

It started with a dress rehearsal for my oldest daughter’s first-ever Christmas concert. Then there was some thrift store shopping (yippee for finding fancy dress shoes for my two-year-old). We also found a set of miniature wood goblets (I think they’re supposed to be egg cups) and a set of classic Wizard of Oz books.

We don’t usually do this well when thrift store shopping but it was quite the score!

My oldest daughter performed in the church Christmas concert for all three services (one Saturday night and two more Sunday morning).

I enjoyed the prep of rehearsing with her, helping her select an outfit to wear, and curling her hair.

Christmas: The Present is the Future
I got misty-eyed as my little girl got up on stage. As a parent who homeschools, this was a dream come true to have the opportunity to see my child in a Christmas concert! I don’t have any pictures to share of her up on stage as all the pictures I have of her are with other children (and I wish to respect their privacy/identities).

I was certain my little girl was going to be intimidated by the crowds of people watching but she was quite the opposite. It fact she wove her way through the group of children and made her way up to the microphone to belt out the lyrics to the song they were singing! It was an amazing moment.

We enjoyed watching one of our favourite Christmas shows this weekend… A Charlie Brown Christmas. My girls got some really good laughs from Snoopy. Even though I’ve seen these features year after year, I enjoy watching my children watch them. It gives the experience a whole new life.

We also started our countdowns to Christmas and celebrated our first day of advent by lighting a candle on our advent wreath.

Moreover, I started a Christmas themed Bible study that I obtained for FREE from www.margaretfeinberg.com. If you want to know more about advent, Busted Halo made a short video entitled: Advent in 2 Minutes. Check it out here:
