Yesterday afternoon Tyler (the dog) escaped briefly and ran across the street into the neighbor's yard. Jake was able to coax him back home quickly, with the whole incident lasting less than 5 minutes. Later I asked Gavin where he thought Tyler was going when he ran off. He replied, "He going get us a baby."

Gavin has been sick the last week with a viral cough and fever. He's better now, still a little lingering cough but no fever. To help him get his mind off his troubles we let him start opening 1 present a day on Saturday. 1st he chose the big present from Grandma and Grandpa Cross:
Last Tuesday Gavin performed in his school's Christmas program, based on the story of Jesus' birth. He sang a bunch of songs, but his favorite is "Go Tell it on the Mountain." We've been enjoying him singing it around the house for a few weeks now.

As a Christmas gift to myself this year I decided to fix my living room. It has been kind of drab since we moved in and needed some color to perk it up. I bought a rug (indoor/outdoor so hopefully it will be easy to clean), blew up a couple beach pictures I had taken, and bought a photo by artist Scott Sumner depicting Jesus seated next to the sea at sunset. I am very pleased with the results. The room feels so much more inviting and homey.
These are the pictures I had blown up:
