Getting Ready for Christmas

Back home, we always set up our Nativity and start our Christmas devotionals on the First Sunday of Advent, which usually comes right after Thanksgiving.  But the first Family Home Evening after Thanksgiving is when we set up our tree and do all our other decorating.

So while the kids were at school, Elaine and went out on the prowl and found a Christmas store shoved into a storefront in East Jerusalem.  A whole lot of shekels later, we came home with a medium-sized artificial tree and all kinds of lights and decorations.  Seeing the look on the kids' faces as they came home from school made the expense worth it.

Samuel's face made the effort and expense of finding Christmas stuff in Jerusalem all worth it
