December is a great month. I love it and hate it. I hate it because of all the material, worldly aspects of Christmas: the money-making, Santa Clause, and greediness. However, I love it more than I hate it: the glorious news of Christ coming to the earth, Birthdays, celebrations, giving, and joy. We have three birthdays in December. That's where I'll start. I hope you enjoy these December pictures.
Gabriel's Birthday comes first, but he wasn't here, so here is Lydia on her 11th Birthday.
Lydia's mint hoecake. She always has a mint cake for her Birthday in remembrance of our brother Micah who shared a Birthday with her. He liked mint a lot.
Lydia "eating" fire.
This is actually a sad story here. Dad's old '82 Toyota pickup left us today. Hannah and Priscilla stand by it for the last time.
The general festivities.
CHRISTMAS BREAD!!!! Our neighbors get "Christmas bread" just about every year. It is fun to make it and it's a good excuse to see our neighbors.
