So, we've had another great weekend around here... our annual viewing of Christmas lights around the city, making a gingerbread house (yes, we tried something a bit different than the usual gingerbread house), Christmas services at church. It's just been great! I must say that one of my favorite times was as we drove around viewing Christmas lights. We have a particular neighborhood in the area that we always visit and this year they did not let us down. It was spectacular! And, the delight of the kids... can't be missed! And, get this... the kids favorite Christmas decorations they saw that night? The nativity scenes displayed in the yards! What a joy it was to hear the screams of the delight -- "Mom, it's Baby Jesus!" or "Wow, there's Mary & Joseph & Baby Jesus! My very favorite!" And, then there was my daughter (4 yrs old) that after one of those exclamations saying, "Jesus loves me and He knows me and I know Him!" Oh, yes, my dear little sweetie, Jesus does love you and He knows you and you know Him, too! So sweeet!
Anyway, as we are in the midst of much fun and preparations around here, I'm going to take a bit of a bloggy break. Not exactly sure when I'll be back... sometime after Christmas, maybe New Year's.... I'm just going to play it by ear. I will probably visit around to you all a bit over the next week or so, but for the most part I will be away and just enjoying some good 'ole family Christmas time. Celebrating the birth or our Saviour and all the many gifts He has given to us.
I pray each and every one of you have the best Christmas.. filled with much joy and laughter. Oh, and good food, too! ;)
