Christmas decorating

now that thanksgiving dinner is gone (yes, i made the rolls-shocker), it's time to put up the Christmas decorations. my dad loved how it looked last year, so we are using the pictures he took as a fact as i am writing this, my mom and becca have been in to look at the pictures to make sure they are placing things in the correct places :)
i am sure that i am not alone in this thought, but i absolutely love coming home at Christmas. i love the feel in the house, i love the love that surrounds all that happens. even when there are arguments or conflicts, the feeling of love permeates. someone told me once that they loved coming to our house for the order and peace they felt. i praise my parents for creating that calculated feeling. i think of Sister Beck's talk often in creating a refuge.
