Christmas is Coming

Just a few pics to share what has been going on at the Tate house:

On Saturday, we finished decorating our Christmas tree.
Liv did a great job straightening the tree skirt.

Elena loved hanging the ornaments as high as she could reach.

We loved snapping some new photos of our girls.
It is amazing how quickly they grow up!

Mark always places the angel on top of the tree.
This is the twentieth year that angel as sat atop our tree!

On Sunday, our family had the privilege of lighting
the Advent wreath at church.

It was the second Sunday of Advent.
Mark lit the candle. Elena read the verse.

Liv ended the lightning by saying "O come, O come Emmanuel."

On Sunday, while grocery shopping
we picked up an item not on our list : )

It is now a new favorite at the Tate house.....
gingerbread men marshmallows!
Yes, they are light brown marshmallows that are shaped like little gingerbread men AND taste like gingerbread!
Yummy with hot chocolate, coffee or plain!

Find time during this beautiful, yet busy, Christmas season to focus on one another and the pure joy that can only come from Christ alone.
In Him,
The Tates
