An eight and a half foot tree set my heart a-whirl. We paraded and partied. Food and drink flowed freely. We hosted lots of family and the days were full of cozy conversations and laughter. We had Joel’s 87 year old Oma up for a visit, and memories were made. I realize our family’s not as big as some, that’s why our house was easy, everyone could play and hang out.
We got to meet our newest nephew, Canaan, and we got to spend more time with Little D, who has joined my brother’s family. It was a unique Christmas with all family here, with the exception of my in-laws who are in Cambodia. I would love for this to be a tradition. I love having our mountain home to share. God gives us such good gifts.
