Today a few of our favorite people came up to visit us for lunch & dessert.
Eric, Sean & Tim attended Catholic grade school, middle school and high school together. Both were groomsmen in our wedding. Today they came to visit with their wives... and Sean's first-born son!
Eric, Sean & Tim have had many adventures and escapades together over the years, and now Sean is sharing the experience of parenting a little boy. His son is extremely cute and content, and we certainly enjoyed having him at our house for the afternoon. Seeing the ladies (Renee and Kristy) was equally fantastic, helping balance out the male/female ratio to closer to 3-1 (not quite, but close).
Such a fun way to pass an Advent Saturday. It's almost time to light the 4th candle (violet), as this evening begins the Vigil of the 4th Sunday of Advent.
O come, O Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyranny;
From depths of hell thy people save,
And give them victory o'er the grave.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!
