Christmas Glow


Joy
Peace
Tenderness


Let Us Carry His Light
 in our hearts
Throughout the Year

Christmas family visits
are still abounding!
I love having my family all around!

We finally had a family photo taken while at my brother's on Christmas Day!


*  *  *
 In the nick of time
I finished my
Mrs. Claus
apron!


(This was photo was taken early Christmas morning~still in my jammies).

 I saw this apron earlier in the season
and had to have one!
It was $24.99 at Pier 1 -- but only $6 after purchasing the fabric and faux fur!





I hope your Christmas was Merry and Bright!
~Many Blessings to all of you as the Christmas Glow Continues~

What a great way to express the Christmas Glow Theme. Yes, it should glow all year round.
May it glow in your family.

Nice apron and lovely nativity figurines. All good wishes to you & yours for Christmas & New Years. And thanks for the Bill Dance link--sad comment on my empathy for fishing show hosts, but the lure hooked to his nose was the best,

I really enjoyed seeing you in your family picture! Is that YOUR nativity set? It is very fine! And you must be very proud of your apron. (You should begin sewing some of these for Christmas gifts next year.) Happy New Year, Maria.
