Deck The Halls

 The day after Thanksgiving I woke up
 with the intention to deck the halls 
of The White House but instead, my eye had a 
weird allergic reaction and swelled shut. 
So I took two Benadryl and fell asleep on the couch for most of the day.  
It was a little bit discouraging especially since my house 
was covered with half-opened boxes of decorations and Lottie was so excited!
On Saturday I woke up with my eye still swollen but not as much
 and so I resumed decking the halls.
With the help of all the Nies, we put up the lights, 
my Christmas village, our trees, pulled out my Christmas dishes, 
and put our wreaths on the outside windows of The White House.
There is a certain glow that happens in my home at Christmas time.
There is no way to explain it except by one magical word:
HYGGE.  Welcome, Hygge!
I use Bright Lab lights on my Christmas trees 
(and pretty much every holiday).
They are the cutest!! 

I welcome December's cold dark nights
and all the Hyggelit that I can create, but I am most excited to 
welcome more meaningful time with my family as we celebrate and honor
the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
