One of the best parts of moving into 'colder' weather is that of having a real fire in our fireplace...I have a feeling that enjoying this requires more work on the part of Captain America than myself.
On the Saturday after Thanksgiving, we were able to get our very first Christmas tree in this house! The only other time that we have had a tree was when we were living in our apartment in married housing at Multnomah (almost five years ago). Since we usually celebrate our anniversary by taking a little trip elsewhere before Christmas, it hasn't seemed worthwhile to get a tree. This year, though, we are postponing our anniversary trip for January...which will include Rome & Venice!! So, we were able to create brand new memories in our little bungalow...
The holidays must always include an ugly sweater party...with a big thank you to my brother for providing a classic 'sweater' that went down to my feet...we called it a Christmas snuggy!
Whether you are far or close, I pray for hope, love, joy, and peace to you!
