Tomorrow, I leave with my kids for my mother's farm in Eastern Oregon. Today, I am a packing, cleaning, clutter-busting machine. And tonight, I will attend my son's very first ever play. He has been cast in the role of Elf #4. So my plan to have everything done before my departure is slowly crashing to the ground. As I clean up around my house, though, I'm finding wonderful little bits of holiday cheer that remind me of the reason for the season: family, togetherness, and hope. I'm signing off for the week, but I will be back to the blog on Tuesday. In the meantime, be well and enjoy these last days before Christmas!
My son thought the manger scene needed a new character.
