Lilia played with Andrew's hair,
grow up quick Arianna !
I painted this last year.
Monday through Wednesday was spent preparing for the sermon that I will preach in Carcassonne the day after Christmas. I prepared it well in advance so that I would have plenty of time to look over it. Wednesday at Lilia and Micah's swimming class, Santa Claus showed up, wearing snorkelling equipment. All the little kids were really excited. As always, I have been having trouble getting an accurate weather report. I usually check two or three to get a idea of what the weather will be and even at that they can be wrong. The forecast was for rain yesterday, and freezing temperatures and snow today. What we ended up with was snow all morning Thursday, though thankfully it didn't stick. I was able to get some Christmas items mailed to the states. This morning it was 50 degrees when I woke up. We did have the rain however, which meant that I didn't go to the market. That gave Angie and I our first chance to do some Christmas shopping together. This afternoon I am doing some paperwork, and soon I am going to make some pumpkin soup from some pumpkins that were given to us. The temperature has been dropping all day, so we may end up with snow this evening. I pray that the weather clears tommorrow afternoon for the Christmas meal and program in Carcassonne that everyone has been looking forward to. We had only one at the Bible Study, but it was still an excellent time. Sunday afternoon there is a Carol Service in English at the church in Carcassonne that we will be attending. Today is the last day of the kids school and so it is the official start of the holiday break for them. It is also Caleb's birthday today, he is 8 years old. Attached song, may not be to your style of music and it may reveal my age, but when I was a teenager, it was my Christmas theme, I would play it every Christmas. God bless, JASON
