Let's get this weekend started.

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace...Isaiah 9:6

The weekend of Christmas is here.  Jesus' birthday is on Sunday!  Are you ready?  Our family is excited about the next four days.  Lots of fun things planned.  We are going to attempt ice skating tomorrow at the outside rink in Sacramento. Should be a hoot. 

Fun with friends today.


We went to go view lights for the third time this month.  Seriously one of our favorite activities to do during December.  We went to a house in Elk Grove on Lake Terrace Drive where the lights are synchronized to the music on the radio. Five songs are played over and over while the lights dance. Incredible.  The kids didn't want to leave. 

As I write this the kids are cozy in their sleeping bags under the tree fast asleep.  First year for this tradition.  Pretty sure it will be a well favored one. 

I am in a festive mood..
