John took Friday off of work so we could finish up on our Christmas shopping. We had a fun time buying presents and going out for lunch, etc. On Saturday, I went to the mall with Edward and we ran into one of his friends who was also out shopping with his mother. I wish I had a picture of that! Sixteen year olds shopping with their mothers. So cool. At night, John & I went down to our church where we were doing a child care event for parents who needed to finish up their shopping. We had about 20 big people babysitting maybe 5 little people. It was quite relaxing to say the least.
This morning in church, we heard a good message about the wisemen's response to the birth announcement sent to them in the stars. Peace to you all as you look forward to the celebration of Christ's birth!
