Merry Christmas and Happy Yule!

Our Christmas began on Christmas Eve day, when we went out to my parents and had Christmas dinner, which we cooked and took out to them, due to my dad recovering from a broken shoulder. Mom has mobility issues so its been a hard time for them. However, Dad has been given a good report and taken out of his sling, and begun physical therapy, so thats all good news! We had a wonderful day with them and then we left early enough to make it to the Midnight Christmas Service at our church - here are some of the pictures from the service....

The front of the church.

The Advent Wreath...

The Christmas Tree at the side window.

And I got to wear my kilt, which I adore!!! 

Then afterwards we went home and fell out, exhausted, of course. We woke up the next day with the most blessed beautiful day - we did not have to go anywhere or do anything and that was a blessed Christmas for us both, indeed, with our hectic schedules! We set up a little foot tall tree on our altar and decorated it - we can actually unplug it at night and put it away safe, so the cats can't have too much fun with it. So here is our Yule Altar, with the little Tree...

This is the Christmas/Yule present Dreamweaver got for's the Wildwood Tarot Deck and its wonderful;
the art is stunning! 

We wish everyone a blessed holiday season - may we keep it in our hearts all year round! 


  1. Lovely. Particularly the photos of the two of you. I have been traveling and am glad to now be back home. Preparing to start that new teaching job a week from tomorrow. I hope you both have a wonderful New Year--all year long! Best wishes. And I feel sure we can get together for a visit sometime before long. I look forward to that.

  2. Me too, Novice Naturalist! Have a Happy New Year and hope to see you soon!

  3. Sounds like a great time! Your church's decorations and your home decorations are wonderful. And that first photo of you and Dreamweaver is particularly good -- it's a keeper!
