At the Deck the Walls service at church tonight, Carolyn made an advent wreath and we now have a new tradition to go with our Jesse Tree.
Carolyn shared the Advent reading and Coleman read the Bible passage.(No, the boys at our house don't ever wear shirts).
What a great way to reflect on the true gift of the season!

Carolyn was very concerned that since we weren't spending Thanksgiving at home that "kids cook" wouldn't happen this year. Aunt Amy was happy to keep the tradition going!
and Carolyn made the sweet potato casserole.
And it was ALL yummy!

I was so excited that we had the chance to visit the new Bush Presidential Library at SMU.
The first special exhibit at the library is the White House Christmas from 2001.
The theme was Home for the Holidays-quite fitting for the first Christmas after 9-11.
The September 11 exhibit is a cornerstone of the library. Carolyn is touching a piece of the World Trade Center.
And of course there is a replica of the Oval Office.
The kids enjoyed the video of Jenna and Barbara Bush talking about the lighter side of being the first family.
The library is very impressive and I'm so glad we got to see it!
