Elise told Luke that he was dressed up like a candy cane this morning. He and I are having a good day - just running around crazy getting things done. He has been a great shopper's helper to me as I try to finalize our Christmas list. We went into the Catholic bookstore today and he was very excited to see "baby Jesus" in the manger. We are trying very hard this year to help our whole family focus on the true meaning of Christmas. Luke and i bought a book today to show us some Advent and Christmas activities to do as a family.
