Advent time! Looking forward to Christmas! Love all the traditions. One of my favorites is the Sunday of Carol and Lessons. Our little church celebrated it on the second Advent Sunday. Middle school children read the lessons. One girl jumped in to read for somebody who had not come. She did a great job but something made us all laugh (on the inside of course - not our loud).
The angel told Mary that she would bear a son ... And Mary said: "How can this be, since I am a Virginian?" (You know where we live!)
I was very busy sewing when Helen was visiting and after. Ben and William did not have stockings. Helen picked out fabric which would be good for the project.
You know, re-doing is much more difficult then starting from scratch.
