Katie & Rachel came to visit us this past weekend. We met both of these girls in Charleston and they were a beloved part of our community group. In the past year both of them have moved to Texas. Katie moved to Houston and Rachel to Dallas. Katie is getting married in February so they came up for a weekend of wedding dress alterations, invitation assembly and some much needed girl time. It was wonderful having them here!

is finished (I hope). Presents have been wrapped and put under the tree. Four boxes of gifts have been shipped to Indiana & Virginia family and Chicago god-daughter. Joseph's "big present" is hiding in the garage for last minute assembly. Joseph talks about nothing but "going to see Nana & Papa & Alissa & Uncle Travis & Aftin & Katie next week." (side note - he puts "uncle" in front of Travis, Chris & Jon but will not put "aunt" in front of Natalie, Megan, Alissa & Aftin. I do not know why.) Joseph's pre-school Christmas program is tomorrow morning. I found out yesterday that he needs a green dress shirt for this. hmmmm. Next week - more Christmas baking and packing for Nashville. 'Tis the Season!

Remember the red sharpee on computer monitor debacle?
Conversation Joseph had with himself in the car yesterday:
"I like the computer.
I like to play on the computer.
I like to paint on the computer.
But can't play on the computer because I'm grounded from the computer."
Joseph is no longer grounded . . . but is closely supervised. . ..

Today is Joseph's first day at his new school. Over the summer Joseph went to school 4 mornings a week. We have switched things up a little this time and he will be going 2 full days a week. Hopefully he'll be able to take his nap away from home! The great thing is that his school is part of ACH where Christopher works. So daddy is close by.
