It has been a wonderful couple of days. Truly days to reflect on our many, many blessings. Days to spend as a family. To be grateful for our health, strength, home and each other. Our freedom. We are truly, truly blessed.
We spend much of the afternoon decorating our home for Christmas. And for the first year I have relinquished control of the actual decorating of the Christmas tree. Needless to say, there is a bit of "bunching"... As I unwrapped the angels that go on our big Christmas tree, the kids came and held out their little index fingers for my to hang an ornament on. They would then pick a spot on the tree to hang it up on. Even Josh got into the action, and there was nothing cuter than seeing him come walking up to me with his little finger extended, going over to the tree, plopping down and hanging the angels on the lowest bough.
And you know, our tree has never looked more beautiful.
