Up goes the banner...O Holy Night!

Up go the wreaths o'er candled windows...
Photobucket
Trim another tree or two...

Angels lift their crowns before the Christ Child...

  1. Oh Carolyn!

    What wonderful photos. It was like being there with you. Thank you for sharing this with us. And I kept saying to Ian, "That's what it's like in America!" And it is. We have nothing AT ALL like that over here. We are limping along and doing our best to keep Christ in Christmas here, and we are grateful and blessed to be keeping Advent with devotions together. Our own house is all decorated. But oh, how I miss American Christmases. They are the best.

    God bless your Advent season!

    Love, Stacey & Ian <><

  3. The linear photos really capture such emotion of preparing for Christmas. Especially like the pizza photos!
