Frist Christmas Season in our New Home

This house has been so fun to decorate. We feel very blessed to live in a home with so much character.

So first...the process YII!!

The time of discovery is so much fun. Sarah enjoys recalling the history behind different ornaments and decorations. She loves the holidays and all that they stand for.

I am so thankful that the kids never seem to outgrow the Christmas spirit. We sure miss Robert and Peter around this time of year. Decorating the Christmas tree has always been a family event.

The final step

The finished product

(Pretend that you can hear the Christmas music and smell the evergreen and cinnamon aroma:)

Thank you Lord for a Special Season to celebrate You! May we carry it with us all year long.
Merry Christmas everyone.
