Good morning Everyone!
We got the tree and other Christmas decorations at our house up last week. As I share them with you, I also am wishing each of you a Merry Christmas or other holiday greeting of your choice! Here’s to a fond farewell to 2014, and a hearty hello to 2015!
This is our family crèche, also known as our family manger scene. This is the first time in three Christmases that I have been able to put it up the way I like – the rental house we lived in for two years did not have a good place. It never feels quite like Christmas without the crèche up!
The last Thanksgiving that Mark’s Dad was alive (he died in May 2001), he and Mark’s mom and Mark and I went on a trip to Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge in our campers. We stopped at a Christmas store, and I saw my first fiber optic tree there, and bought it. We still put it out every year, and (knock on wood) it still is shining brightly.
The fiber optic cables shift between different colors.
Mark is a white light Christmas person, and I am a colored light Christmas person. We thought never the twain should meet until we bought last year’s pre-wired artificial tree – it has a dual personality!
Have a very Merry Christmas!
