Gifts for the Neighbors

Hello! I hope all of your Christmas preparations are done and that you have been enjoying the season. There was a flurry of activity at our home for a few days: Christmas parties, Christmas concerts, caroling, baking, wrapping gifts, etc. but now we are done with the busyness and have been enjoying time with family.  One of the last things we did before leaving town for the holidays was to take small loafs of chocolate chip banana bread to our neighbors for a holiday treat. I dressed them up a bit with ribbon, baker's twine and a stamped tag to make them extra special.

This will be my last post until the new year and so I would like to end with the words from my favorite Christmas carol, and wish you all a very merry Christmas!

O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Savior's birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
Till he appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
O night divine, the night when Christ was born;
O night, O Holy Night, O night divine!
O night, O Holy Night, O night divine!
