We got our decorations up last week, it’s been so much fun decorating with the kids and seeing all the ornaments come out again. I get so much pleasure from just seeing everything again – like seeing old friends… LOL.
My mom got us this sweet decoration a few years back. I know Santa is a controversial figure, but I do love the story behind him, the legend if you will. And I love this decoration because it kind of epitomizes the importance of Jesus’ birth amidst all the craziness of Christmas shopping, Santa visits, or whatnot. It’s really about this, when it comes down to it. None of the other stuff matters, and it’s nice to be reminded of that. We can have all the other joyful stuff, as long as Christ is still the at the center.
Love lights ❤
And at night….
Our famous skyline.
The top of the building in the center of the above pic, is where my parents bought their chunks of land in the country back in the 80’s. All the way at the top in the penthouse.
So cute… 😀
Our river ❤ There were less lights for some reason this year. It was still gorgeous and we can’t really complain – but apparently we have new boats that light up the water below them. LOL
Christmas Candle… I always try to get one every year and light it every night, at least through dinner. It’s just a simple tradition, and the light is beautiful for the kids (and me) to look at.
LOL our mischievous one! Wait… they’re both mischievous… oh well!
Enjoy this season readers! Please go out and have fun! Do joyful things… go listen to some carolers, or watch a ballet of the Nutcracker.
Do something to remind yourself of beauty this season! To recapture how you felt when you were a child.
Go see some glittering, brilliant lights around in your city. Really look at a well-decorated Christmas tree at a hotel. Enjoy some wine! Go out dancing!
Do something this season to bring more joy into your life, please.
