Each year, as Christmas approaches, I try to get a picture of the girls by the Christmas tree.
Wherever we are in the world, whatever tree we are decorating, whatever house we are in… a picture is taken to remember the blessings of Christmas.
Three precious girls, a succession of years gone by…
As they get older, this post gets sweeter and sweeter. A changing of time recorded in one place.
A memory of where we were, what house we lived in and what part of the world we celebrated Jesus’ birth is recorded here for the year.
A journey down Christmas memory lane… true blessings, each and every one.
