Year after year, especially since we don't travel, our family spends a good deal of time during the Christmas season doing some sort of service. This year is no different, other than the projects we have been taking on are more time intensive now the kids are getting older.
We are very thankful our neighbors (who own a tree farm) let us cut some leftover Christmas tree 'scraps' and gave us oodles of winterberries. We gathered ribbon, pine cones and other misc. decorations and our 4-Hers put together arrangements in vases. Each 4-Her brought one or more arrangements to someone in the community to brighten their day.
The first of our many projects we've been working on....more to come!
