christmas 2010

i had a lovely little Christmas this year & really enjoyed the preparations of seeing in a new Season!
i tried to spend time soul-cleaning & found some new, wonderful people in the process.
God blessed me with truly special time with people i love. i am so thankful for every moment.

these are a few I captured...

i love my JOY cup.  it's stayed full of hot cocoa, tea & coffee all winter.
when I'm chilly, it reminds me what truly warms me inside & out.

when I arrived home, Mom had everything sparkly & beautiful.
I love their little tree with our family ornaments on it. She unwrapped some really old 
ones, which brought a flood of Christmas memories to my mind...

....one being the year she spent making these glorious ornaments for our tree.

Mom & Dad bought this nativity set when my brother was a little guy (30+ years ago). 
They still put the set out every year...and hide the Baby Jesus until Christmas Eve.

I've learned so much about giving from my parents, who both serve the Catholic church & people of our home parish. This year, Mom made lots of baked goods, like empanadas. After Mass, she & Dad took them to a shut-in couple in the mountains, along with Christmas Communion.

I wanted to attempt something special for people that would be from my heart.
I knitted scarves for several of my friends & family. I loved it!  It brought good time to watch Christmas movies & time to think about Who we were preparing for.

This was a very special, warm Christmas full of fantastic people, fun & renewal.
Thank you Lord for coming to give us a chance to bring You to the whole world.

Found you via Oh Hello Friend and I think your photography is great, and I'd love you to keep blogging -- for me, it's been such a great cathartic outlet (and you can print your blog out in book form now!) and it does take time, but if you comment on blogs, more people drift in to comment back, and before you know it, you'll have regular followers! Please don't give up!
