Galations 2:20-21

I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the Law, then Christ died needlessly." Galations 2:20-21

Yes, It's Christmas Time!

Okay, so I'm really not into the whole decorating for holidays thing. Byron, however, brought home a Christmas tree he picked up for FREE. A church has their office across the hall from my husband's office at work and they were giving away Christmas trees as an outreach. They had some extras and were giving them away to anyone who wanted one. Somehow he managed to fit the 7/8 foot tree inside of our PT Cruiser.

So, I put up a few Christmas lights in the windows and after rearranging things around the house a little, we put up the Christmas tree. My mom and sister came over and we made strings of popcorn and cranberries and then a few days later Byron, my sister, and I made Christmas ornaments out of applesauce and cinnamon (Thanks Debby & Jeanie). Here are some pictures of our Christmas Time fun...

Yay, we got the tree leveled!
