Weekend Reading: December 24, 2011

Last week, the girls and I made — and ate — chocolate fondue, and it was a hit all around. Not a bad morning snack, although the two-year-old (and her big sister!) were beyond messy by the time it was said and done.

Today kicks off our Christmas celebration. We’re heading to Sean’s aunt’s house, then to Christmas Eve service, and then we’ll be back home for our Christmas Eve traditions. It’s a celebration that lasts three days as we spend time with different parts of our family, and I’m looking forward to all of it!

Here are some of my favorite posts from this week. As always, check out what I’m reading to see the other posts that make me stop and think. You’ll find new posts all week long!
