R.H. and I are home from visiting our son Defee's and daughter-in-law Wallace's home.

A too short trip to meet our new granddaughter CC.

Too little time to hold this adorable little sweetheart.

Too little time to play with her big sister Nora.

But the memory of Nora's face when she woke up from her nap to find her Mimi and Paw-Paw there, a priceless memory to last forever.

Such joy in seeing these two amazing parents with their daughters.

A deep content is in my heart after seeing this daughter-in-law of ours, mother of a two year old and a two week old, calmly unwrapping candles this morning after breakfast, putting them in old silver candle holders, arranging a few twigs of holly around it that Defee went outside to cut. Lighting the first candle and then quietly reading Scripture verses for the First Sunday of Advent, letting Nora blow it out while explaining that next Sunday they would light a second candle.

Without any fuss or worry, Wallace made not only an Advent wreath but an event that may stay in Nora's heart where she will always associate it with Christmas and the Birth of the Baby.
