It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Our Christmas tree is up, but not completely decorated. I am waiting for instructions from Kristen’s Creation on how to do the bow at the top of the tree, but things are definitely looking festive here.




We spent yesterday working on the front yard. I still have to do the front door. I’m trying to decide how to do the garland without putting nails or screws in my brand-new front door. I also saw some lighted trees at Home Goods and Target that I’d like to put on either side of the door – plus I need a new wreath. Whew…I’m lucky to be married to an electrical engineer… (even so, I think that we might have blown the breaker once lol)


and to have other helpers!





Things are coming along… I ran across the following at Empty Nest Full Life. She suggested during this advent season that we reflect each day on who God is. What a great idea! I am going to join her.
