We really do not decorate a lot around our house. I believe it takes away from what CHRISTmas is really about. Also, it's just more I have to put away.
Decorating the tree.
This is Hannah's favorite time of the year.
Here is how Katrina helped us! LOL! She did help more than this, but would not let me take her picture. I am such a proud mama with my teenager! Last weekend she hit the streets sharing information about the church we are starting with a few other families. She was not afraid or shy about telling people in our town. Even after the very first person she talked to said NO. She kept going. I do not know of many teens who are willing to do this.
The only one tall enough to put the angel on the tree!
This is a crocheted CHRISTmas tree my Mom made me. I love it. I wish I could crochet like her. I just need to do it more and I would be able to.
We had a cookie baking day at church yesterday. 7 of us got together and made cookies. We use to do it at a woman's home but outgrew that quickly. This is a little like a cookie exchange, but it's fun to get together and bake.
This is only half of what we ended up with. We had 4 huge tables full of cookies.
My greatest accomplishment recently is my quest to read through the Bible!! As you will remember a while ago I posted about the challenge that was given to me. Read through the Bible in 4 months. I'm so blessed I took this challenge. You can read my post HERE.
How are your CHRISTmas plans coming?
