Christmas is Coming





Christmas is a mere two weeks away and we've been busy decorating.  I know you have as well as I've seen on your lovely blog posts.  This year we have had a few roadblocks along the way.  As we are getting older we have considered paring down on some of the decorating, but I've resisted this notion so Grayden and I have persevered through problem issues with our so called Christmas pre-lit tree.  



We worked for three days trying to resolve these issues and then decided we needed to either buy a new tree or buy new lights.  We opted for a strand of new lights for the top.  


Our birds flew in to take their place on the small little tree in the living room.


I made this little ceramic tree in 1979.  It now has helped us celebrate Christmas in our home for 40 years.  Do you remember these trees?


 

We've had this Nativity set for many years now and have placed it on the mantle to remind us of the reason Christmas is coming. 


For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.   Isaiah 9:6
