Somehow or other, I didn't manage to summon the gumption I needed to get the non-cyber version of that project off the ground this year. Here, instead, we have some scenes from around the JoyFam's house showing how we readied ourselves with tremendous excitement for the Christmas season. Sometimes, before I begin with it all, I wonder if it's worth it. The thought occasionally strikes that the decorating process might well be an exercise in assigning myself a whole new slew of unnecessary and energy-sapping jobs. But then I see the little eyes lighting up all around me. I see the two younger JoyKids literally dancing in place as they try to contain their joy just a bit. I see the four of them in passionate 'team mode' running back and forth to the garage with new boxes containing treasure after treasure they'd forgotten we had stored away.
God bless you as you hang with loved ones during this season commemorating His sacred birth.
