Guess what!?

Another addition to the farm!  Can anybody guess what it is?!

In His Service,

Decorating for Christmas

"And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn."
Luke 2:7

This past Sunday we did something different from the usual Sunday evening routine:  we set up our Christmas decor and nativity!   We normally set everything up the Saturday after Thanksgiving but it didn't work out this year.  (By the way, I have no pictures of our wonderful Thanksgiving because I forgot to grab my camera. :-( )   

Once we arrived home from a fun birthday party that afternoon, we got all the boxes of Christmas stuff out of the storage cubbies in the girls room.  We dragged all 3 boxes down the stairs and then opened them up and started taking down our current decor and putting Christmas stuff up in its place! :) 

One box of our Christmas goodies!

Eden helped make sure our LED lights were still working. :)

(We put these trees in our nativity scene.)

Placing everything just perfect... ;)

Hannah popped all the popcorn for us as we set everything up.  Thanks, Banana!

Sadly, I don't have a full picture of our manger scene so I can't show you the final product.  But, if I get a picture of it and have time to post it (doubtful...), I'll add it to the bottom of this post.  :)
