A highlight of the season.......so far

Well hello, I do hope this week is treating you well so far!
I have one lone shot to share (and un-edited at that!) of some decor for the Christmas season...you see, we have a storage unit and all our decorations are in it. A couple of weeks ago we decided to go get our outside lights to put up, and that was it.
I'm kind of liking the fact that I can't get my hands on my decorations and start stressing out about decorating my house!
That will happen this coming weekend when we put our tree up and I'll decorate a bit inside, but I'm not feeling like going crazy with it this year, more simplified.
As for my blog title, I'm referring to our lighting of our Advent wreath each Sunday...our dd insists on partaking and saying a prayer, which is priceless! You never know what's going to come out of her mouth, what pearls of wisdom, and she's really very spiritual. (My dh was wishing we had recorded her words but once you put that recorder on it's a game-changer).
Have a peaceful rest of your week....:).

I feel ya Gail.
This Christmas feels like it is more about family and time spent with them than it is about who has the most and the best to show off.
We put up just what needed to be and it feels so right.
and on the other subject, don't ya just wish you could have moments recorded to look back at years from now with out them knowing. :)
Have fun putting up the tree

There is just nothing as special as time spent with your child.... I'm reliving that now with my little grandson... what a treat! Or, would that be "re-treat"

Happy New Year!
