Recipe for perfection
In relief society they talked about traditions a little bit. Since I am single I don't have a lot of traditions but as I was thinking I thought my favorite thing about getting ready for Christmas is setting up my nativity. I love it. I reflect on each piece as I place it on the shelf and contemplate their sacred roles at that time in the world. I love that I have a simple Nativity (I wish it meant that it had been cheap). It has taken me four years of buying pieces to have the set I have now. It is not 100% complete but I am happy with it. They always add extra pieces but I love mine the way that it is and it has all the major parts.
After church Sam, Amanda, and Nancy joined Dan, Caleb, Katie and I for dinner. After dinner we watched the Christmas devotional. I feel like it isn't really Christmas until the devotional each year. That really starts the season for me.
My tree all decked out.
All posts are better if I post a picture of a niece or nephew. This little stinker would not let me hold him tonight until Amanda put him to sleep.
So recipe for a perfect Sunday: Music, Walks, Church, The Spirit, Family, Dessert (obviously), Wholesome movie (ELF), and Devotionals.
