We've had a fun, full month leading up to Christmas. The day after Thanksgiving we had our traditional Rudolph pancake breakfast before the decorating began.
No great decorating pictures this year. We put the tree up, added lights and realized that we needed a new tree. It was literally raining needles. Oh, what a mess it was!
Of course there has been shopping trips. It's fun to shop with Megan. (Well, most of the time.)
Our last shopping trip involved a trip to the mall. We stopped to listen to the piano player and enjoyed the department store display.
Cookies have been made and enjoyed.
Me and my sidekick. I know many who talk about missing their children when they were younger. I enjoy all of the ages. I find the independence and know how of a twelve year old to be fun when doing things together.
We are slowly getting settled in our new church. We enjoyed a wonderful Christmas program.
There has been evenings spent out and about looking at lights. The window display at a local antique mall is by far my favorite.
Saturday we ventured south to a little town with an old time candy shop. We went to watch candy canes being made. Fun!
Our first family gathering will be tomorrow afternoon. This afternoon was spent getting the goodie trays ready to go.
All the cards are sent, presents are wrapped, treats are baked and most importantly my heart is in the right place as we celebrate the birth of our Savior. I'm thankful for all of you who stop by and read my little space on the web.
From my family to yours.... Merry Christmas!
