In a family of 4 this only works so well, especially when 2 of the four can't shop yet by themselves:) This morning we each picked a name and then this evening we headed to The Riverwoods where we ate dinner at Malawi Pizza and then split up into 2's and bought a gift for the persons name we had chosen. There is such a nice Christmassy ambience at The Riverwoods, full of lights and they had a guy playing the violin in the gazebo, it was amazing to listen to him play, if it wasn't 20 degrees out we may have stayed and listened longer. I didn't have my camera so here are the few pics I got from my phone.
Sister missionaries just singing some Christmas carols around a fire.
