A to Z meme. This week's letter is "X."
Guessing I won't be the only person to use this particular word for this particular letter :) (And just in case you're curious - the abbreviation is NOT a way to take Christ out of Christmas - see this explanation of its origins)
Our Christmas season starts the weekend after Thanksgiving, when we put up the tree (I, naturally, forgot to take pictures of most of the process, but do have one). We've had the same artificial tree since the hubby and I got saved in '99 (though we MAY have not gotten it until 2000. Not positive!).
|My son helped put it up :)|
I also display a couple nativity sets, a Christmas clock (plays a different Christmas tune every hour on the hour), Christmas placemats, and probably a couple other small things I've forgotten about (and, of course, neglected to take pictures of).
|The few pix I took came out bad. This one is the best of them.|
|They LOVE their computers!|
She immediately started playing and trying it out, and was clearly having a blast as she did. She was hardly off it the rest of the day (in fact, scroll up and check out the picture of both my kids on their computers. How do you like her chair??).
Overall, it was a wonderful Christmas. (And, just FYI, we took down all the decorations on Monday, December 30 - we generally do it around that time)
How Was Your Christmas?
My heart is stirred by a noble theme as I recite my verses for the king; my tongue is the pen of a skillful writer. Psalm 45:1
