Christmas Spirit: Yesterday was one of my favorite days of the year - we picked out someone from the Angel Tree and bought gifts. We chose a one-year-old boy who liked Winnie-the-Pooh, and bought some clothes, a soft stuffed Pooh bear, and an electronic Pooh book that Maggie has - and has been one of her favorite toys for nearly two years. We also bought stuff to make a gift basket for the ward.

This morning was breakfast with Santa. We practiced asking Maggie what she wanted Santa to bring her for Christmas.

Maggie: A present.
Us: What kind of present?
Maggie: Yellow.
Us: ? What do you want in your present?
Maggie: A horsie.

She sat pretty willingly on Santa's lap, although she said she didn't want to. Dalton didn't seem to mind either.

After the breakfast, we went to Jodi's ward, and provided some musical entertainment. John, Ember and I played the piano, and Jodi sang, and Jodi and I sang (Mom accompanied). I'm so proud of Ember. She did really well, and John said he was surprised at how difficult her pieces were. She had obviously been practicing really hard and I'm glad we thought to have her come and play. After all, isn't this what lessons are for?
