Gingerbread House

I watched my neighbor, my son, decorate his home for Christmas. I call it the Ginger Bread House. They bought a tree and placed red, white and blue balls on it. I remember when this young man loved decorating our home. One year he even ran the lights up over the roof and back down across my fence to the end of the property. Even my hubby wants to get our tree up. That's so unusual for him.

Now he makes a new memory for himself and his wife. I love it!! So after dark I went over, stood in the yard and took firsts. Pics to put in their book of firsts. This year for Thanksgiving my DIL will be working. I hate that but I am glad she has a great job. So we will just make dinner early enough for her to enjoy before going to work.

3) dreams God places in your heart visions
5) a vocabulary a woman who taught her hubby to see all as God's creation

11) my hubby spending time with each son my children
13) the soul journaler, Kathryn great prompts
15) the love of a daughter working through loss of mom
