December 8 – Christmas Train

Tonight we added the Christmas train around our Christmas tree.  I made a short video of some of my favorite pics and of the train circling the tree when we finally got it started.

I also took a group of photos using the continuous mode of our camera as the train rushed past.  Couldn’t resist making one more collage.

Yippee for Saturday and yippee for snow!  The first real snow of the season looks pretty and isn’t too deep yet. But more is on the way. Enjoyed trying out the new camera in the snow!

December 5th – One collage isn’t enough

It’s been a busy day of work and computer lab and choir practice and Bible study.  The school students got a special treat when a preschool student (and his Dad) brought a tractor for show & tell!  The children sang for the Ladies Aid meeting, and Ben and I decorated our fence for Christmas!

But there’s more.  Apparently one photo collage wasn’t enough for today!  Luke shared his in-progress Art project on perspective. and I just had to get some photos of it as well.

December 4th – Decorating the Church Basement

I had the privilege of spending the evening with my dear sisters in Christ who are members of St. John’s Hosanna Circle.  It is our annual tradition to decorate the church basement, and we always have a lot of fun doing it.  Who knew it could look so lovely?
