This past week we had an appointment on the calendar. An appointment we did not want to miss. A night set aside to set up the Christmas tree. Together. As a family.
We enjoyed a simple dinner of p&j sandwiches, popcorn, and apple slices. All prepared by James while Rachel and I were at her physical therapy appointment.
We enjoyed our dinner talking about Christmas memories of the past; and dreaming about all the things we want to do this Christmas season.
Then we went to work setting up the tree. This year Ann did the honors of putting the angel on the top of the tree. (With a little help from Daddy of course!)
The two little ones enjoyed just sitting and looking at the tree when the work was done.
Then, before we all headed to bed, Daddy read to us from the Christmas Carol. We went to bed thinking about the holiday before us. I am looking forward to all the season has to bring us. I am especially looking forward to spending time together as a family.
Trust you are beginning to enjoy all the season has to offer. Time with family and friends remembering, not just the reason for the season; but the reason for life. Jesus Christ, Himself.
Thanks for stopping by. I am so glad you did!
