2 of our light strands were out so we had to make a late-night trip to shopko to buy new ones.
[sidenote: does anyone else feel like shopko & kmart smell super weird?]
he also let me buy some cute new christmas colored sprinkles. he is so good to me.
he fixed the lights and then i started fluffing the branches.
by the time i was done, cameron had a headache and had gone to bed.
the next day, we spoke in church. both of our families came up to hear us speak.
but it was good. it was a good reminder for me that i need to go to the temple more often.
afterwards, my family had to skedaddle back home so hillary could return to provo. boo.
and cam's family came over for lunch.
cam's mom, christine, and younger brother, parker, helped me add all of my glittery red & gold ornaments.
[target clearance after christmas. best way to go.]
they make the tree look even more fascinating than it already was.
one of my favorite things to do during this season is to turn off all the lights in the house except for the tree.
then i just sit and watch it.
it gives off such a warm, cozy glow that i can't get enough of.
to me, it is christmas.
it is comforting.
"When we have the spirit of Christmas, we remember Him whose birth we commemorate at this season of the year: “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:11).
