Well, here it is - the Christmas tree all decorated (with a little help from my elves). There are more ornaments from the middle of the tree and down than there are near the top. :o) We used silver balls and red balls for the tree in the living room, and the kids made ornaments for the tree in their room. They're excited about having a tree in their room since this is the first year for that. We'll see how long it stays up.
I just love this time of year. There's something about the calming effect of all the Christmas lights. I could just sit and stare at them all evening long. What must heaven be like with the glory of our Lord and Savior shining brighter than these little Christmas lights? Hmmmm, something to think about.
