what comes to mind
when i think of christmas?
these five things, this thursday-
would be a few of my favorites!
1* nativity sets-
i have three that i always have
up for christmas...
after all it is
the birthday of jesus!
the willow tree set my three girls gave to me one christmas
the older set was given to me by my mother in law
when we were first married
and the last little clay set my
made me many, many years ago!
2* family and get togethers!
my youngest daughter and
i were talking about all the places
her and i are going to this year
to spend with family...
i counted 5
she counted 7 she has
the boyfriend's family :)
3* twinkly white lights
our tree standing tall and gorgeous...
along with the fireplace glowing
4* games, puzzles, crafts
and movie matinees
yes, this is something
that has come to be
5* the excitement, joy and wonder
in my 'big kids' and little grands
as they open their gifts
on christmas day...
life is beautiful
if you are local...
i invite you to our candlelight communion service
tomorrow night (friday)
at christ evangelical church-bellingham @ 6:30
my daughter and son in law, aka 'a fine pair of misfits'
will be debuting a original christmas song. :)
