Advent... Day 14

Sunday... aaaaaahhhhhhh.

Well, getting to church wasn't quite relaxing, due to very icy roads, but this was a Good Day. A much needed Good Day.

So, at Sunday School, all the kids were downstairs, practicing for the Christmas Program. Did I mention they are singing 10 different songs? Why yes, I think I did ;-) The woman directing the program had forgotten the sheet music, and the pianist was flipping through the hymnal, looking for page numbers of the songs they needed. I'm just guessing the kids might've been getting a little squirrelly, so the director said something like, "Well, I forgot some of the music, so this might be a little tricky, but we'll be fine," when she saw Gunnar's little hand go up.

"Um, Miss Tricia? Don't worry. I can sing 'Silent Night'."

Yep. Not a thing to worry about. Gunnar's got your back. And he can sing 'Silent Night'. Okey-dokey.

Clear, cold, and sunny. Hours of sledding. Cozy warm house. Macaroni and cheese. And hot cocoa. Don't forget the hot cocoa. Mmm - hmmmm.

If it's clear where you are, look outside tonight.  Take a good look to the NW for meteors. Apparently we're passing through the remains of an asteroid tonight and tomorrow night.

I didn't stand outside long enough to see anything. We went to evening church and by the time we got out, the temp was about 14F and the wind has been blowing 30-50 mph. I don't know what that works out to, exactly, in wind-chill, but COLD covers it.

Once again Wyatt found exactly the book he was looking for, "Olive the Other Reindeer", by Vivian Walsh and J. Otto Seibold. Olive is a little dog with an identity crisis... she thinks she's a reindeer. Or maybe she's Hard of Hearing? "All of the other reindeer..." becomes "Olive the other reindeer..." And she's off to the North Pole to help Santa. (There's a Valentine's book called "Olive, my love"... same gag.) Cute. Silly. Funny two-dimensional illustrations.

Devotions... good, but nothing to comment on. :0)
