Christmas Eve Dinner Table

How was your Christmas?

Ours was wonderful and busy.

I have to admit that I am tired,  so today is going to be a day of resting and being lazy.  All extended family are gone and it’s just me and mine.  I’m thinking a movie day is in order.

I do want to share our farm table set up for our Christmas Eve dinner.

Our family dinner table was set up to focus on the greatest Gift ever given…Jesus Christ.

Can I just tell you that this old farm table is the most wonderful place to sit and talk?  We have had the very best conversations here over Thanksgiving and Christmas.    I can only imagine the other families that have set around this same table over the past hundred years and the things they talked about.

Rest, my friends, and enjoy the rest of this beautiful season.

Today was a rest day for me too. I think it all finally caught up to me and I was too tired to do anything. :)
Blessings now and in the New Year!!
