I am a neat freak. Well, I like things really clean. And in 500 square feet the littlest mess makes the apartment feel a lot smaller.
But I have another reason to clean today. Our mom is coming tomorrow for a Christmas visit!!! We have been so blessed being all the way out here. Not only do we have our family in New Jersey, but our mom travels a great deal and we've been luckily enough that has visited about three times since we've been here. Its been so nice!
Christmas is coming! And I always think of Charlie Brown's Christmas, not only because of the adorable pathetic little tree that Charlie picks up for the Christmas program (much to everyone's dismay) but also because of Linus and his recital of the true meaning of Christmas. I posted the clip a few weeks back. Watch it, it can't help but warm your heart.
Its a late night for Beau so I a sitting here watching "Yes, Virginia" munching on apple slices, and am rather proud of myself for accomplishing so much today.
I even went out and bought a tiny tree. Its our first Christmas as a married couple and I wanted to make it as special as I could for Beau.
Here is our tree:
Its only about 2 feet tall, but its absolutely adorable with the lights on it.
I hope you are all looking forward to spending time with your loved ones.
In Gods Love,
Beau and Kenz
