When Hannah and I arrived at AWANA last night, we discovered that it had been cancelled for the night. Hannah was heartbroken and cried the entire way home. When I got home and told Greg what had happened, we decided this was the perfect opportunity to put up Christmas decorations because (1) the night was now free, and (2) I was tired of listening to Hannah cry and I knew this would cheer her up.
We let the kids stay up late so they could help us finish decorating the tree, but we decided to do the rest of the decorating on our own after they were asleep.
After breakfast, Millie noticed the stockings hanging from the mantle. "Mom," she asked, "are those Santa's socks?"
