Jesus is born!

We got a tree yesterday three days before christmas. Since we waited this long there were only the short trees with pine needle branches left. Fortunately we prefer to have a charlie brown looking tree. It stops about 4 feet before reaching the ceiling. I hope that this year I can really focus on the true joy of Christmas which is the birth of Christ. I am really guilty of getting all caught up in the consumption of material and food around this time of year when the celebration is so much more meaningful than this! I feel really thankful to be able to come home to a family who shows such great love and I hope I can practice the love of Christ towards others this season- I know I have really been shown it!
