We picked out our tree on Sunday afternoon. It was the first time we all went as a family to the Christmas tree farm and marched around in the snow picking out that perfect tree. I wanted something Charlie Brown-ish for a change but after over an hour of searching, I ended up loading a somewhat perfectly shaped tree into the back of my dad's trailer.
Maybe next year?

This week started out with the intention of finishing up my holiday decorating and sharing it all here for you. However, Monday morning we received news that my sweet loving grandmother, at the age of 99, had taken a turn.
While still lingering with us, she is very low and has had 10 of her 14 children at her bedside for the last two days, holding her hands, signing to her, praying with her and whispering loving words in her ears.
Somehow, blogging hasn't seemed such a priority. Instead, I've been finding comfort in holiday decorating, a glass of wine in hand, Christmas music in the background. Memories of the the woman I cherish and admire so fondly tugging at my heart strings. Hoping and praying that she peacefully finds her eternal rest.
