This was my very first christmas ornament, the one my parents picked out for me on my first christmas. Yes, she's digging into a pie, how appropriate for the baker of the family.
I really, really love the christmas season, I'm always sad when it ends. I love the lights on the houses, the christmas tree, and giving gifts, maybe even getting a few too! But most of all, I love that it's a celebration of Jesus' birth, a specific part of the year to remember and be thankful for the best gift of all, of course we should all year long, but it's nice to be reminded.
"Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
"Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."
