Day 47: It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

It was amazing that Krista got to blog yesterday, but as she discovered the shakes make it really hard to type. So I'm back to the blog tonight. Krista's doing well at home, though she had big plans she hasn't been able to do just yet. Watching all those cooking shows inspired her to help out in the kitchen, organize meal plans, and help clean up. Well, cleaning is really not allowed as that would expose her to too many germs. Cooking would be fine, but it's pretty frustrating to do much more than simple things with the shakes. She found success helping to find some recipes for me to pick up stuff when I went shopping this afternoon, though!

I wasn't able to rest much today since Christmas is coming up fast. Trevor and I got all the decorations down. I worked the outside lights and he set up the miniature village inside. I always forget how nice it makes our house look. With Krista's immune system in the shape it's in, we can't risk having a live tree, so we brought back the outdoor tree that you can see through the window of our living room. We also have two small pre-decorated artificial trees that complete the indoor experience.

It's very exciting to be together for Christmas. The lights remind us of Christ who is the light of the world.

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ.
