This past week has been busy with beginning the season of Advent. Having Hudson has made this Christmas seems all the more fun. I love that he's experiencing everything for the first time, even though he'll not remember a moment of it.
First, we put up our Christmas Tree. I avoid shopping at all, especially Black Friday shopping so we spent the day rearranging the living room (multiple times) and putting out all the decorations.
Hudson is a serious fan of the Christmas Tree as you can see. I am having a feeling that next year when he'll be 18 months and most likely walking everywhere that we'll have to do some serious baby-proofing of the tree. Or as Mrs. B says "Don't baby-proof the house, house-proof the baby!"
Next, Hudson and I went to our church's Angel Breakfast. It's a special event put on by the preschool and children departments. Youth dress up like angels, to represent the angels who announced Jesus' birth. Our pastor, Bro. Tom reads the Christmas story to all the kids (and parents). Plus the deacons cook and serve an amazing breakfast.

|My shameless spread o'food.|
|"You better watch yourself son" - my exact words|
|Wondering what's going on.|
|Bro. Tom called all the kiddos over.|
|Waiting patiently for the Christmas story to begin.|

I'm assuming this was a brother/sister duo.
|Sweet Mrs. Audrey.|
|We made salt-dough ornaments with the kids.|
|Hudson and Mr. Rick!|

I LOVE how Little A is smiling at his big sister.
|T and G having serious conversations.|
|Maryann and I - she's my "oldest" (not in age) Louisville friend.|
And could she be any more gorgeous?

Have you ever tried to get a 6 month old's thumbprint? Not easy.
We had no orange marker so our snowman is nose-less.

Hudson would do well to marry a woman like her one day. :)
