While space and storage are limited in our 36′ house-on-wheels, I love to decorate for the seasons, so we picked up some of the basics when we stopped by storage last month, to decorate our home for the holidays.
The older girls made these handprint wreath wallhangings in Prep-K when they attended HCS last year and the year before. Perfect for perking up a small, undecorated wall space!
The stockings were hung by the slide room with care…
Oh, Christmas tree, oh (2 foot) Christmas tree…
The shepherds appear to be making their way to Bethlehem in the kids’ Playmobile Nativity scene tonight.
We have also brought along and incorporated our Advent house with activities to count down to Christmas, a hand-carved Nativity that my dad made for me years ago, our dining room window has window clings with a scene from A Charlie Brown Christmas stuck to it, and our outside awning has donned Christmas lights along it throughout our stay here on Hilton Head Island, SC. Most of all, the spirit of Christmas is alive and well in all of our hearts. One thing that our family has learned over the past year is that it doesn’t take much “stuff” to live big–even, and especially, at Christmas.
Merry Christmas, from our family to yours. May the God of Peace fill your hearts and lives with joy this season as you reflect upon the hope that we have received by the grace of His coming to live among us. His presence was and still is the greatest gift at Christmastime and at all times.
