Just a quick post today.
Monday, I went over to my Mom and Dad's house and decorated their tree. Sometimes the holidays can be a bit overwhelming. You want the tree and beauty but the thought of the work of it can make you not want to do it! I took my helpful little elf Kyle and we got it done. Once I had the lights on, Mom, Kyle and I put the ribbons and other ornaments on the tree! It looks beautiful and my Mom and Dad are enjoying it.
Lighting Tip -
100 lights per foot of tree. Also make sure you put lights in close to the trunk. We run them vertically along the trunk and then around on the branches. We tuck them in and get the tree glowing! It makes all the difference in the world!
Last night we did our annual trek to see the Christmas lights in Nottingham, PA. The Herr's Snack Factory puts up thousands of lights every year as a gift to the community. We've been going for 20 years! Afterwards we stop and get a donut. This is a tradition that we all love.
I bought a Gingerbread house kit a few weeks ago that had four small houses in it. Kamryn was here on Monday evening so she and Kyle made theirs and Sarah did hers yesterday. They had fun with it, but Kamryn, age 5, mostly wanted to eat the candy!
I've done some online, some in store and I am going out with my Mom today. I like to find unique, personal gifts, and we will also be giving some gift cards this year.
Everything is on track. I'm placing the flower order this week. Emma's dress is ready! She is going to be a gorgeous bride. The groom arrives Christmas week! She's very excited.
I hope you have a great day and a great Christmas season. We are keeping our eyes on the Reason for the Season! Hope and Joy are available for those whose trust is in Him!
