Our lovely "Charlie Brown" tree! It is sitting on our coffee table so that you can see it out our front window. It is scraggly and has large gapping holes and kind of short and just perfect!
So here she is!!!
And now with the lights off!
Ahhh, I just love how the lights sparkle and I love squinting my eyes and making them all blur together. Does anybody else ever do that? Is that weird? Hmmm, maybe I should just keep some things to myself.
So my first Christmas Eve away from my family has been bitter-sweet. I miss all the wonderful traditions of going over to Grandma's house and all the sweet kiddos around. But at the same time, I am exited to be building new memories and traditions with my wonderful husband and his family too. It is good to remember what all these celebrations are about...Jesus, and His great gift of love for us. He is a wonderful reason to celebrate!
