I promised them a while ago. Time waits for no man, and we're spinning away into the next year.
Making palm frond stars with Miriam.
This was very soothing to me. I may have to make about a thousand palm frond stars.
Jaya helped me make salad for our feast.
We decorate our live tree. I love this tree. It was a little Charlie Brown Christmas tree when we first got it, three years ago. Our landlord planted it and now it's a huge wonderful tree, perfect for lighting up.
We also decorated our daughter. Actually, our friend Rebekah decorated her. She doesn't look impressed.
Lights and a big circle on Christmas Eve.

Light circle. Everyone shared their names, where they were from, and something that was a light to them in the last year.
It was a beautiful Christmas. Sweet and lovely and soft.
