fourth of advent

We finally lit the fourth candle (finally for the children - a little too quick for me).
December has been busy. Once more I spent a night at hospital, this time with my little girl who got a hard soccer ball kicked at her head, which resulted in a concussion.
We are thankful that she got over it quickly.

Than my husband lay new flooring in our entry - I'm SO thankful for this. The old stained carpet with it's strange blue color gone!!!  :)

Anyhow it's soon christmas and yesterday I finally got the chance to get some greenery from my in-law's  garden and made several wreaths and I added some greenery around the house...

... and finally the christmas feeling is here!

a day's worth of wood

The temperatures have dropped below the freezing point.
That means keeping the fire alive is high on my priority.

It's strange to have only one child home in the mornings.
But we enjoy these mornings tremendously, he and I.

And the more is going on in the afternoons with homework, music lessons, soccer practice and cooking dinner... 
but in the evenings we lit some candles and gather in the living room while the wood stove still spreads its warmth.

even in the stable there was no room for them...

because babyboy thinks it makes a great garage for his cars ;).

Funny. But it made me think. 
Am I so busy, that even "in the stable" there's no space for Jesus?

(at least until babyboy needs another garage)
