(Our new house is on Wales Ave.)

The tree was lovely and the food was amazing. And…the gifts were very nice too. But what was absolutely wonderful about this first Christmas in our new house was the spirit of family. The laughter, the music, the smiles and naps. The warm fire, fuzzy jammies, sparkling paper and twinkling lights adding to the feelings of home.

We sat around tables with more food than could possibly be consumed only after reading from Luke and praying a blessing for the upcoming year.  We played loud and crazy games until late in the night…. And all this because we were home.

Even after the tree is de-smocked, the lights all put away and the leftovers sent home with hungry kids, the feeling of this Christmas will live on through the year at the House of Wales, because we are family and we are home.
