Look who's smiling now! They are excited because we told them they could go home and open one gift before we had our Christmas Eve dinner. Aren't the poinsettia's beautiful? I love our church at Christmas time.
Emily sang with the Children's choir tonight and they all got together for a group picture after mass. Good looking group, aren't they?
And here is our living room, all decorated for Christmas. This is our first year to purchase a fake tree... but I really think we got a good one and hope it will serve us well for many years.
And yes, we got our lights up outside the house this year too. I love driving up to our house each night... it makes me smile to see the blinking stars on our little redbud tree all decked out for Christmas. So yes, there's no place like home for the holidays.
And now off to bed... I'm thinking there are going to be some kids wanting to open up gifts tomorrow morning!
