He is LIGHT and LIFE and TRUTH! Look to Him for the ALL the answers. He will guide us, if we'll let Him.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Proverbs 3:5-6

Decorating Our Christmas Tree

Well, we finally got the tree up and the lights on it over about 3 evenings the first week of December. Then the next week, we finally had everyone here to add all the ornaments. Hannah really enjoyed it this year. We had our traditional meal of Taco Soup--one evening later--oops! We've had that traditional meal for the night we decorate our tree for about 8 years, now. (Post a reply if you'd like our recipe--yummy!)

Mercy (Hannah's kitty) decided the tree looked like a great place to roost--roost? Wait a minute, is she part chicken?? Hannah and Caleb just thought she was hilarious!

It's been not so funny now that it's all decorated to watch her in the tree. She's really good though, she's been trained to only knock off the non-breakable ornaments--yeah, right....but, I must say we've been fortunate for no breakage.

The finished product!

Yes, that's baby Jesus with an angel above Him in our tree. We got the idea from Nanny Boo Boo. We liked it so much, we decided to add Him in our tree, too! How fitting, since it is all about Him!!!
