Counting Down

Miss Em and grammy at our ladies of Faith Advent Service.

This Christmas has been a wonderfully, busy time for this ol' grammy! It started with Emilee's Christmas Concert, in which she sang a solo for the first time was beautiful! Of course, since I happen to be the grammy I am just a wee bit partial. As soon as she came off the stage, we had to rush to the Church for our ladies of Faith "Advent Service."
Since Pat already wrote of what a beautiful time of sharing and worship...(Oh, what a Holy Night we had.) I will just say that Amy delivered the perfect message. And the Holy Spirit filled that room with such love and peace...isn't that what Christmas is all about?

I made this wreath with a coat hanger, sandwich bags and simple decorations.

Friday night, I hosted our Sister/Cousin Christmas dinner. As children, we were always together! My Daddy and their Mama (Aunt Mildred) were very close and our lives so closely intertwined. They instilled in us the of love for family and now, with them gone on to be with Jesus...I want to keep that love of family alive.
So, today I will enjoy a quiet day at home. Tomorrow night will be the last of our Christmas parties...the Church Leadership dinner. Then, I will do the baking of traditional Hungarian Pastries!
All shopping is done...Need to do some wrapping, but Tomer does most of that while I do the baking in the evenings. That's what we have done our whole married lives...Tomer is always such a help.
God, is so good and I thank Him for His many blessings in our lives.
Just 5 more days until we celebrate the birth of our Saviour...A baby changed everything!

When I was a girl we had a wreath similar to that - - - made out of a coat hanger and plastic bags!

Dear Trish,
last time I visited this post , I could only see the pictures.
What a wonderful Advent time you've had. You should be so proud of your grandchild. Singing solo, that is quit something.
No wonder she's looking like a million bucks.

Beautiful wreath as well.
