December 8

This was Matthew's first Christmas ornament with a picture of him when he was about 3 months old. I have a mixture of ornaments on the tree. Some I made when I was a teenager over 30 years ago; others I made in college. The Santa hat to the left is one Matthew made in pre-school. You can't see it well, but the wooden tree in the upper left is one of many I got from Israel. No, I didn't go to Israel, but my old church had some for sale one year that were hand carved in Israel. It is a tiny manger scene of Joseph and Mary.
