Merry Christmas Eve!


We did a whimsical Christmas tree this year… filled with child-like fun and fantasy.

Even my very first ornament from back in the 1950s is here. The little bird no longer has a tail, but it flies in the tree splendidly.






Other ornaments pay tribute to the various 4-legged family members who shared Christmas Past with us.








Another treasure is the manger scene that graced my grandparents’ home back in the late 1940s.


I find great comfort in decorating with special items from dear friends and family, both past and present.




Such trinkets remind me of all the love with which I have been blessed.




May you find comfort in your blessings now and throughout the new year. Merry Christmas!
