Ho ho ho....

Tis the season! wrestle with Christmas lights, wade through a sea of people at the mall and try desperately to keep what is real about this season close to my heart.
It's not about the sights, sounds or smell.
It's about family.
It's about a baby born in a smelly manger all those years ago.
It's about the man that baby grew up to be.
The only man who could take on all my sin so I could have a relationship not only with him but with the father.
You may have seen this on facebook:
Greatest man in history, named Jesus, had no servants, yet they called him Master. Had no degree, yet they called him Teacher. Had no medicines, yet they called him Healer. He had no army, yet kings feared Him. He won no military battles, yet he conquered the world. He committed no crime, yet they crucified Him. He was buried in a tomb, yet He lives today. Re-post if you believe with your heart.....Merry CHRISTmas!

I posted it...did you?

and now for some pictures...
The kids trimming the tree.
Most of the ornaments are 3feet high..all the way around!

Then last night we were baking/decorating shortbread cookies....
