Today was a busy day in our family. First up, the kiddos first ever Sunday School class. They were finally old enough, and they had a ball. We reviewed the Bible story before bed - and they knew it! I have good memories of Sunday School growing up, and I pray they do, too!
Then, they got to watch as Auntie S lit the first Advent candle at church. They don't get out of the nursery during church much, so this was a special treat!
After church, it was off to the Christmas tree farm to pick our Christmas tree. This is the first year we have thought they were old enough to go cut a tree...and they had a ball. The P'incess directed traffic all over the farm! Then it was home, and time to decorate. Amazing what 3 kids with no patience can do...the tree was decorated, start to finish, in 20 minutes flat!This was Andy's 'help' with the decorating. He has a bit of a puffed chest after yesterday's win, and today's announcement that Oregon will be playing in the BCS Championship on Jan 10th. More pictures to come from that, I am sure!And our 'nice' picture! The halls are decked, most of the buying is done, and the Christmas letter is written...so, wrapping, (UGH!), addressing (UGH!) and a few that I am making is all that is left! Not bad for the 5th of December!

I was putting together some calendars of family pics for Christmas, and realized just how long it had been since we had a family picture! That necessitated a trip to my favorite photographers! Oh yeah, that was easy, since we were already heading over there for the Oregon/Oregon State Civil War. Considering the way that we are dressed....we were very happy at the end of the game, when the Mighty Oregon Ducks soundly defeated the lowly Oregon State Beavers (sorry Dad! LOL) and they are now #2 in the nation, and slated to play the Auburn Tigers in the BCS Championship game on January 10th. And yes, we will once again display our colors!
