What a blessing to have Christmas fall on a Sunday. Our church usually has the Christmas service on Christmas Eve, and that’s when we are together with my Dad’s side of the family. I’m so joyful to be heading to worship on this Christmas morning!
The past few weeks have been exciting. It’s been such fun to find new places for all our decorations. To start, the 12′ Christmas tree that looked lovely in our old home was just too tall for our new one. So we found it a good home, and then found a new tree at a thrift store. It’s 9′ tall and fits beautifully!
I love the perspective from the second floor walkway:
There’s a quaint shelf under the kitchen cabinets that now holds some of my favorite pieces.
Each year I look forward to cookie baking day with my mom and dad. For the past few years we’ve held it at our home, but my oven hasn’t been working right, so we got together at my parent’s condo. Praise God, I’ve never missed a year of this lovely tradition and usually the kids and grandkids join in. This year Brad, Sommer and Trey were there.
I finished the Santa Wreath that Cathy and I were working on in Michigan. These guys make me smile!
I could do without the below zero temperatures this year, but it is truly a white Christmas – and it is beautiful!
Praying each of you has a blessed Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year!
