We are linking up with the amazing Laura at My Grey Desk (click the button to travel to her site) to show off the top five moments of our week.
1. (Amanda) Christmas Eve service at our church is always so great! They sing all the traditional Christmas carols and read from Luke. The kids get plastic drums and match around while the adults sing "Little Drummer Boy". They are so adorable! It ends with a candlelit singing of "Silent Night", which moved me to tears this year as I thought about all the families in Newtown, CT.

4. (Sean) I have become a huge fan of disc golf. Its a lot of fun and unlike ball golf it doesn't cost a lot to play (most courses are free and the ones that charge are usually under $5 per round) One of my friends (Robert) was in town and we went out to the course near home to play. The course is one of the more difficult courses in the area but is still a lot of fun to play. We had played twice together at another course near his home earlier this year and I lost to him both times, so it was time to redeem myself. My hope today was that I could pull of a win as I had home course advantage. Robert started off strong but I was able to claw back and take a lead in the first half of the course. I was able to extend my lead into the second half. Robert was able to gain a few shots on the last two holes but it was too little too late and I was able to record my first win which felt really good.
5. (Amanda) I am a major Pride and Prejudice fan. I love the love story between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. My friend introduced me to the BBC mini-series with Colin Firth a few years ago.Knowing how much I wanted my own copy, Sean got it for me for Christmas. I am so excited to spend 5 hours and 45 minutes in the hill country of England with the Darcys and the Bennetts.
I hope you all had as great a week as we did. Enjoy your weekend and please check back on Monday when we link up with Kate and Kati to talk about the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of our weekend.
