Enjoying Christmas Time

I do believe it is Christmas time. We have been enjoying many things that come along with that.
  • Singing and listening to Christmas Carols - we shared them along with verses at the nursing home last week.
  • Snowy days.
  • Decorating the house.
  • The smell of pine! 

  • Walks in the woods to collect evergreen branches.



  •  Pictures, letters and cards from loved ones coming in.


  •  Secret projects that we are having fun working on to give to others.


  •  Pine garlands on our stairs.



  •  Stockings hung - even for Kitchi. :-)


  •  Working with my kids to make our home look festive.



  •  Old fashioned Christmas traditions like popcorn strings made by Megan.



  •  Candles - we think they are rather beautiful.


  •  My sweet girl who is loving going around in the dark house with her candle. (We are being very careful!)


  •  Lefse making with friends.


  •  Getting to use the lefse stick which looks rather like a sword. What fun!



  • Getting to go on a date with Ken to hear a high-school accapella choir sing carols. It was a treat.
We are so very blessed that God sent His Son to earth for us. It is fun to have this time to celebrate. I hope your Christmas time is a blessing to you!

Looks like you are really enjoying this beautiful season! What a dear blessing that Jesus came down and lived life as one of us and then died to buy our redemption! God bless you this Christmas, Abbi!

Your house is beautiful all decorated for the holidays! I have never had lefse, it sounds and looks wonderful and fun for all to enjoy making and eating! How sweet that you and your husband got a little date night too, always such a blessing. How lovely that your family is working secretly to make projects for each other, that is the true spirit of giving! Many hugs to you today dear friend!
