It started one rainy day in Tigard

I was keeping (sort of ) a journal for the past two years, just about things my kids have been doing, but I just write so slow. I hope my kids can look back on this with fond memories.

This is a blog about myself, Tanya and Jonathan, Nathaniel (almost five), Benjamin (2.5 years) and Grace (10 months) and the path we take as a family.

Again, again?

Ahh.... candlelight services..... so we went to our church's candlelight service. The music was beautiful, the service was great, but Benjamin was so eager for the candles to be lit, that he could not concentrate on anything else... one song would go, then another and then another. He was waiting patiently, but that he said "my light candle now", "again" after another song would be sung, "again" after each song. It was about an hour into the hour and 15 minute service that they got to light the candles. By this time, I was out in the hallway with Grace as she was not happy being cooped up in someone's arms for that long.

Earlier in the day we went to Gustav's German Restaurant for lunch. It was nice and relaxed, getting us ready for the next day.

Christmas Eve we finished up the Trader Joe snacks we prepared and then got the house ready for Christmas Day; egg casserole, check, breakfast and dinner table laid, check, stockings filled, check, dishwasher emptied, check, brussels prepared, check, prune compote in port, check. Lots to do for the big day. Jonathan and Nathaniel even made mini mince pies for a Happy Birthday Jesus pie (no cake this year)....
