The 22nd has a large star because that's Lester's birthday. They came that day and departed on the 25th for their drive back to Texas. Lauren dropped by on the 23rd on her way to Dyersburg to see her dad, returned for lunch on Christmas Eve, and had to leave Christmas Day afternoon for her flight back to Texas. We crammed a lot of memories into a short amount of time.
The little ones added to the wonder of Christmas.
The big tree and all the ornaments are packed away. Memories remain. Thankful for the moments we captured on our cameras.
The house was very quiet Christmas Day afternoon with all the kids gone. Then we had a lovely visit from Lori and Cecil and two of their children Jakob and Jackson. The rustic tree that Cecil made was a wonderful Christmas gift surprise. The brass deer and tiny lights complement the tree and make a quiet after Christmas scene.
I wish you peaceful days as December winds down and joyful ones in the new year.
