Ah, Christmas! A time for family, festivities and my faith.
1. As a Christian, I love Christmas. Advent may be my favorite season. This year I have been reading through the Cetlic Night Prayers each evening and have found great joy and hope in them.
2. We are a bookish family, all of us from the littlest to the oldest. These photos are an excellent example of of our joy and love of receiving books for Christmas--our favorite present!
3. We like to be silly too.
4. And we love our super heroes.
5. We don't own large homes so when our family gathers together in one spot, we really can't have all of us sleeping on sofas, under tables or in the bathtubs. So I am deeply grateful for two family friends who offered the loan of their homes to us during our stay in San Diego. It's a win-win situation: we have a place to stay and they have house guests who look after their cat while they are gone visiting their families in other places.
I hope you had a lovely Christmas! And Happy New Year to you! See you next year.
