It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas!!!

We bought our tree the day after Thanksgiving and Miss Ginger had to check it out. Last year she hissed at the tree. This year she just sniffed. She must approve!
We don't have any good pictures, yet, of the tree completely decorated. R was playing with some special glasses a friend gave to us. You look at the lights through them and you can see different designs. I didn't think she would be able to get an accurate picture of what it looks like, but somehow she managed!
I think the one above is a starburst pattern. You can tell that the one below is a snowman.

Christmas crafting is stepping up a little more. Hopefully it will be finished in time. I don't know if I'm trying to convince all of you or just me! The kids have terrible colds, so that is forcing us to stay home and I'm able to do a few things as a result. I just hope they will be better soon. It's no fun for them to be sick when they want to be busy with holiday activities!

We have a prayer request. RLs Dad has been battling lung cancer all year. He started having problems breathing and the doctors thought it must be scar tissue from the radiation treatments. Turns out it was the cancer again. Either it never went away or it has come back. They suggested he start chemo treatments again and he would possibly have 6 to 9 months. If he didn't get treatments, he would only have 3 to 6 months. Our prayers were answered when he agreed to the treatments. Our prayer now is that the treatments will work this time. Maybe we are being selfish, but we just aren't ready to let him go just yet! Thank you for your prayers.

I'll pray. I'm praying all the tiem anyway, so I can add in a little bit more. :)

I love those pictures. We're going out of town for Christmas, so we aren't putting up a tree. The kids are sad. Bummer!
