|Us Christmas 2010|
Believe it or not, the first weekend in December is only 2 weeks away. Now, in our household we decorate for Christmas the day after Thanksgiving or that same weekend.
This year is going to be very different for Mark and I because it is going to be the first year without anyone in our families here or us there for Christmas. For me, Christmas exudes family and friends. A little tough to handle.
This is where you all come in. Mark and I are asking that you share in our Christmas holiday with us. I am currently making paper rings to decorate our apartment with, you know the ones that look like this (except in red, white and green):
What we are asking you to do is send us a paper link or two or three or 100! However, on each link we want you to do any or all of the following:
Write a Christmas wish on each
Write a prayer request
Have your child draw a picture on each
Have your child list their Christmas list wish
Think of something else appropriate in this category of things
Then mail them to us! We will take each link and add them to our links. On Christmas Day we will lift all of these things up with our celebration and you will be a part of our celebration too.
You can do this as individuals, family or church groups. The more the merrier. We will post all the links together so you can see.
Please make sure the paper links are no longer than a regular size piece of paper, in width the size of a ruler. Red, green and white is good but if the get colored different colors that is ok too! :) If you can, please send before Thanksgiving.
If you are going to help in our celebration and want our snail mail leave me a message here and I will e-mail you the address.
We look forward to making a Christmas memory with you.
