Today, for Pink Saturday, Beverly asked us to share our Christmas traditions. My family always gathers at my home on Christmas Eve. We have a Christmas meal and then open our presents. This way my sons and daughters in law and grandchildren can be at their own homes on Christmas morning to open their presents and see what Santa has brought. On Christmas day, my sister, niece and I have a wonderful Christmas brunch at a very nice restaurant in an old Victorian home in Austin, Texas. One tradition that we have always done each Christmas Eve is to read the Christmas story from Luke chapter 2 in the Bible. A new tradition that I started when my grandchildren came along is to have a "Christmas Treasure Hunt". I hide the grandchildren's presents in my home and then make clues which are hidden throughout the house for them to read and follow to their Christmas presents. They enjoy this so much that they look forward to it each Christmas Eve.
I recently found some very good buys at a local antique mall that was having a sale. I bought the white table shown above to go between my two white chairs in my living room. I also bought a lovely white table cover with very pretty cutwork to cover my lamp table in my living room. I wanted to share these with you today.
Please visit Beverly at "How Sweet the Sound" to see what she and all the other Pink participants have to share with us today. You can find Beverly here: http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/
Well, today Christmas is only a week away. I am wishing for you and your family the happiest of Christmases and a blessed New Year, my sweet friends. I am so glad I have come to know you this past year because you have been a real blessing in my life. Blessings and love to you!
Just a thought for today: Seasons change. God never does. His love is everlasting and steadfast.
