The 3rd Sunday of Advent...on Friday

This Sunday, thanks to my brother and future sister-in-law, Casey and I are going to our very first Texans game!!!! WooHoo!!!! order to give our Advent celebrations their due time and attention, we decided to do our 3rd Sunday activities tonight. It was another lovely evening.

Braelyn and I spent most of the afternoon making sugar cookies, playing with the leftover dough and doing many dishes!!!!
Braelyn licking the paddle. Don't worry...we're keeping this little batch to ourselves. ;)

After dinner, it was time to light our candles, read our Advent Scriptures and pray.
(On a side note...last week I originally lit the candles during dinner so that we could enjoy the candlelight a bit longer, but the candles are SUPER scented and they were messing with the flavors of my food. So now, we light them after dinner.)

The 3rd candle...
One of our Scriptures:
The LORD your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness;
He will exult over you loud singing.
Zephaniah 3:17

Time to decorate our cookies!
Just good ol' fashion Christmas sugar cookies...thanks to

Can you find the Braelyn cookies?
