It's really too early to say it's beginning to look like Christmas because we still have 3 family birthdays, our 21st anniversary and my parents' anniversary before Christmas Day! Needless to say, this is a crazy busy time of year with all of those celebrations plus special church services and family memory-making.
While our lives have taken some unexpected turns this year, making this holiday season look much different from our usual, we're trying to make it a priority to focus on on the REAL reason for the season...the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. Yes, we love decorating a Christmas tree and shopping for presents but we also love to set up all our nativity sets to remind of of the miracle of Emmanuel...God with us.
My youngest set up this special "utility set" and loves to move the pieces around. I love how he did this grouping of EVERYBODY (animals included) gathered around the stable, admiring Baby Jesus.
