I Love December!

Oh, I love this time of year!  I can sing my favorite songs!  The air is crisp, and the lights are lovely.  As we anticipate Christmas Day, we have put up our tree and have made our Advent Calendar.  I'm having so much fun sharing all of the wonders of Christmas with my kids. They are so grown up now, and they are just as thrilled as I am.  We put up our Chicago Christmas tree - I'm calling it that because it's not the tree we have used in past years since I significantly downsized this year.  Our apartment does look adequately decorated, and it only took us an hour to get our tree up and ornamented!  I am so glad that we can celebrate the birth of Jesus in such a festive and beautiful way!
