It’s been very busy around here. There was lots to catch up on after our holiday.
One thing we chose to make time for when we got home was a weekend in Seattle to see the grandkids.
We went shopping for an Advent wreath – .
of course PopPop found something that interested the children more than wreaths and candles!
Nana and Ella made Christmas ornaments for the tree.
Back at home, I had fun making up some outdoor arrangements.
I love the red berries, and varied shades of the different evergreens.
Some, pine, spruce and fir, and some huge red ornaments and glittered mesh ribbon and the front entry looked like Christmas.
Meanwhile Harv was stringing lights outside. He loves doing this and we have a standing joke about how he buys more lights every year.
The result of his creativity are impressive – we have a winter wonderland around the house.
The lights brighten the dark night reminding us how Christ’s coming brightens our dark world.
