Navel oranges made an impression

"Are you making belly button juice?" Daniel asked while watching me peel a tangerine. My parents were here for Christmas and squeezed a whole bunch of navel oranges to have fresh-squeezed orange juice on Christmas morning. Apparently, one of the grandparents explained what "navel" meant. :)

Quotes of the Day

Daniel is playing with the nativity set..."Oh Baby Jesus, we love you. We worship you. We adore you. We give you a train ride!" That is the ultimate act of worship for Daniel - to share his trains...

"I will be Joseph, Hannah will be Mary, and Caleb will be Baby Jesus." Daniel says quietly from the backseat. "No, Daddy will be Joseph, Mommy will be Mary, you and I will both be angels this time, and Caleb can be Baby Jesus!" Hannah's retort. She was recalling a few years back in our church's Christmas program that Peter, Daniel and I were the holy family, and she alone was a guardian angel. Role playing is big around here.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, if you don't hear from us before then!
