Preperations

We are anxiously yet patiently awaiting the cominging of Christmas, the celebration of Christ our Saviours birth. We have spent the day creating many new decorations for our humble home and many JOYous memories to look back on in the years to come. Our tree is up and decorated though I feel something is missing. Christmas cards are on the table ready to be written with love and sent with anticipation of their arrival. Jesse Trees sit on the floor from moments ago when we all gathered as a family to prepare our minds for the coming of our Lord in a manger. Hot glue guns are still warm from little hands creating their masterpeices from nature. Our advent wreath sits in the middle our living room waiting for it's candles. Thoughts are still lingering of capturing many more moments like these and banking them for eternally lasting JOY satisfying memories. Tomorrow awaits us to experience it's freshness and adventures of daily living together, I can't wait! Our Expresso, whom we have missed so much behind all of the papers and books, is taking a day off to just be with us.

Note: no news on the adoption, all is the same and we are still praying.

What a lovely post. It's our first year doing the Jesse Tree. We're just doing one together.
It sounds very nurturing there...
