The kids and I road tripped down to Nebraska for a long weekend last weekend to visit my parents for my dad's 75th birthday. The kids had both Monday and Tuesday off of school (and we're off AGAIN today for extreme windchill weather---please make it stop!) It was a nice trip and good to get away. We even enjoyed a 58 degree day one day while we were there. Sure beats our -20 degree wake up this morning.
My mom left her Christmas tree up so that I could see how she put it together after I had sent her new Christ ornaments for her birthday last year.
One dove on the tree to represent the Holy Ghost at Jesus' baptism
Angels bought at Michael's
Love her cluster lights that she's had for years
The white lights represent Christ being the light of the world
Two different red ball ornaments to represent the drops of blood shed by Jesus.
I think she found these filigree balls at Michael's too.
Biblical Names of Christ Ornament Set bought at Deseret Book
We also discovered Baker's Candies in Greenwood, NE., famous for their chocolate meltaways. Yep, they're good! Thanks Mom for sending us home with a couple bags.
