Celebrating the season in our small town church. It is nice to know that I'm not the only one who likes unadorned trees. The Latin is John 14:6.
The family news:
We have a new member in our extended family via my niece, Rachel. Welcome to the clan, Emet James.
My Sean and his adorable Amy having a good time on the slopes. (You would not believe how much he looks like his dad.) When did my son get old enough to have grey hairs instead of giving them...
The Gingerbread house wars are on at Marymine's. Though I must admit I didn't quite get the aliens coming home to the pyramids at first. Yes, we have an outside the box thinker!
Marymine and crew are coming here for Christmas! Dad doesn't know, so keep it under your hat.
Dad said he didn't want a Christmas tree, not even the small one, stored in a box in the garage. I don't always listen to what he says, as much as what he doesn't say..
So, instead of getting a new rug shampooer, that I had been saving for, I went and got an 8' lighted Christmas tree. Didn't tell Dad, til I got it setup in the living room window. Plugged it in, and watched Dad's face light up as bright as the tree.
"It's Beautiful, Sis!"
Made my Christmas.
Wishing you and yours a Blessed Christmas.
