Hello, Christmas.

Last weekend was all about decorating for Christmas.  First my roommate and I decorated our place.  She put up four Christmas trees in the time it took for me to put up one.  But I will say that my tree could eat her trees. It is always so fun putting the ornaments on the tree and remembering putting up these same ornaments as a child, and remembering where some of them came from.  My parents got us a new ornament each year, and now as adults, we have enough ornaments to decorate a tree!  My grandpa used to make us an ornament each year too – it is fun to put them on the tree and remember what a great man he was, and look forward to seeing him again in heaven someday.  Sunday a bunch of us stayed after the church service to bring Christmas festivity to Hope!  I am pretty sure that we inherited the Christmas decorations from the church that met in our building before we did.  There are some really special things in those storage bins: dozens of little red cardinals in golden nests and little gold french horns and violins.  Needless to say, we do not use all of our available options.  We go for a simpler more classic Christmas look.  And we learned from last year and recruited newbies to wrestle the giant wreath of death onto the wall.  Yet some people, I won’t name names, thought we should go for a more “creative” Christmas approach.  Enjoy some pictures of Christmas decorating.

Now that all the decorating is done… I am on to Christmas celebrating!  Cookie baking, elf watching, santa visiting, and ice skating will now commence!
