So, I love Thanksgiving. I love it. I love the wonderful excuse to tell people and God all about the things for which I am thankful. And I have so, so, so many things! But, I absolutely adore the Christmas season and everything that it means: Jesus came down to save us! God with us! It’s incredible and brings me so much JOY.
We spend the day after Thanksgiving decorating our house and try to center our attention on preparing our hearts for celebrating the coming of Jesus. We started the day with a yummy breakfast and then got right to the decorating. The boys wanted to waste absolutely no time.
