All the decorations are up and the house is filled with the sights and sounds of Christmas. If we’re not playing Christmas music, we’re watching a Christmas movie. As of yesterday, we have begun our Christmas break. Nathaniel finished up his first dual enrollment semester at our local college. Thank the Lord!! He has earned some down time. Sophie and I have already decided our Christmas break should begin as well. Wade will start his Christmas break next week. Yay! While this is a busy time of year, we always look forward to slowing down just a little to enjoy more time together. As the kids get older the time together becomes even more precious. I love it when we’re all here together!
As I’m writing this, the sun is reflecting on the blanket of snow lying on the ground and the birds are fluttering across the yard in search of a morsel or two of
sustenance; Cardinals, Blue Jays, Juncos, and Robins all making themselves known. Not only is the inside of the farmhouse decorated for Christmas, but God took care of decorating the outside as well. Snow. Snow. Snow.
