And so that was Christmas ... 2020!
A Christmas to remember in so many ways:
*on-line church services
*zoom and facetime gatherings
*non-traditional Christmas day menu
*Covid restrictions and lock-downs
*totally relaxed schedule (no parties or concerts to attend)
*last Christmas at the farm
*outdoor and porch gatherings
*a lovely snow fall on Christmas day
*hearts prepared for the reason for the season
A week before Christmas,
we enjoyed a bonfire gathering around the firepit
complete with hot chili, hot chocolate, mulled cider, and all the trimmings.
It was cold and dreary but so wonderful to see our Siblings/In-laws face to face,
mostly social distanced of course!
Thank you everyone for coming and for bringing all the yummies!

Pictures for our church's Christmas Eve Candlelight Service on Youtube:
The on-line service was wonderful and brought tears as we viewed the sweet candle-lit faces
of our church family.
We miss them all so much!
Mom's Hoosier Cabinet in it's traditional Christmas Eve decor:
Final touches to the "new" mailbox sign.
The smell of paint and stain,
bringing back many memories of finishing up projects before Christmas in years gone by.
During my "Noah's Ark Studio" days the kitchen table was filled with such things!
Christmas Day 2020
Christmas day came and we are ever so thankful that our wee family was able to come,
since we are all in the same bubble!
It was a lovely day, fresh white snow, excited children,
good food and fellowship.
Blessed beyond ... and thankful!
High and Low!
Final Advent candle lit.
I didn't have the proper candle colours
this year but just used what I had.
Christ is born!
Boxing Day Text Message Pictures ... Love them so much!
