Today John and I went to Church. The church was decorated so beautiful! The window sills in our church are deep so they always put greens, magnolia leaves and then a huge hurricane with a pure white candle inside it. They had all of them lit this morning. Our Christmas tree up near the sanctuary is about 40' tall and it is decorated with little white cross, doves, stars, trumpets, etc. It looks beautiful. I think they bought 2 huge new wreaths also for the front of the church because they were absolutely gorgeous this morning! We sang alot of the hymns that I love this time of year.
Then John and I met our 2 friends from the neighborhood for brunch. The restaurant we wanted to go to was closed so we ended up somewhere else. I had the Chicken and Spinach Salad and it was just yummy!
Then we went home and changed into comfy clothes. I have been having trouble with my cell phone, so we decided to go to Best Buy where John works and get me a new one! I am now the proud owner of a LG enV in maroon! Very festive looking! I love it already!!
I decided to take a picture of the outside of our home all lit up. I love candles in the windows. We have put most of them on a chord that you step on to turn off and on and it is so much easier!
This NOEL banner was made by a friend and sent to me about 1 week ago. I just hung it on my mantel in the kitchen. I love it! Thanks Lisa!!
Now I'm headed downstairs to read and hopefully complete the Sugar Cookie Murder by Joanne Fluke. I will be starting The Cedar Cove Christmas by Debbie Macomber after that. Everyone have a lovely evening!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
