Oh, Christmas Tree, Oh, Christmas Tree...

"Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree.
In the eyes of a child they are always 30 feet tall."

~Larry Wilde~

"Tradition: sit with husband in a room lit only by tree lights and remember that our blessings outnumber the lights. "

~Betsy CaƱas Garmon~


"No matter how carefully you stored the lights last year, they will be snarled again this Christmas."

~Robert Kirby~

A cheap tool to use for putting away Christmas lights:

Wrap a strand of lights around a paper-towel tube. Tuck the stands' ends into the tube's hollow interior and tape the lights and tube together. For strands that run too long for a single tube, try a long pole or broomstick.

  6. What a lovely reminder to look for some quiet moments. Up until today, when Jim and I sit by the tree, we have a Christmas movie playing or are watrching a DVR'd show. Tonight . . . we will sit quietly looking at the tree lights and count our blessings.

    Have you've been over to my blog to see a poll that I activated? I've joined Christian Cafe. I'm trying to see how long it will take to find love or it it will find me within a 1yr time frame.
