The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It is my favorite time of the year.
How about you?
We put up the Christmas tree this past weekend. We all had a great time, except for maybe Dave!! He does not care for straightening a real tree, I probably exasperate the issue by being his helper. ;) I'm not very good at holding the tree straight!! But we did it, & it only fell over twice. HeeHee
It is a beautiful tree, but I think this may be the last year we do a real one. Of course, I say that every year!! The kids love to decorate and each one has a definite opinion on where things should go--so does Mom! After we finished the tree, we had eggnog and watched one of our all time favorite holiday movies. Fancy a guess???? Here is a hint: "I'm in a store and I'm singing."

This week we also started reading the scripture of Advent. I found them at Focus on theFamily. Last night, we watched The Nativity. We are beginning new Christmas traditions in our household. How about you? Are you doing anything new this year?

As I said, this is my favorite time of the year & I can't really put words to why it is. It is something I feel deep inside of me every year at this time. I am in awe as I remember the greatest Gift and deepest Love that has ever been given. God sent His Son to earth as a babe. This year remember to celebrate the birthday of the King of Kings above all else. Merry Christmas!
