Christmas Preparations 2010


I have the Best Daughter in the World! Ann Marie turned my house into a Christmas Wonderland last night! She worked till 2:am (after working all day!)! She spent hours wrapping gifts…hanging the wreathe she made last year…placing our nativity scenes, santas and snowmen throughout the house…placing our beautiful red ‘n green plaid tablecloths on the tables…decorating our mini tree in the dining room and putting the start of the gifts on the buffet table around it. Then she spent all the time putting our 12 foot tree together so it looked just right! John & Sakeena helped put the lights on & decorated the tree with colorful, shiny bulbs and 28 yrs of sentimental ornaments from their Mimi’s personalized ornament gifts throughout their childhoods, handmade ornaments from schooldays & ornament gifts throughout the years. What a beautiful result! Before I went to sleep I spent some time just enjoying that special Christmas light glow in the dark. This has added so much to my enjoyment of the Advent of Celebrating the Gift of Jesus. What a Sweet Blessing!
