Hi everybody.  You remember that I killed my laptop, which is what I used for all my blogging.  And I have yet to get a new one.  I almost did, but that is another story.  And until I get a new laptop, my blogging will still be sporadic.  But I wanted to let you know that I keep up with your posts on my iPhone and that I wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.  And share with you a little Christmas "rattles"
First of all, we bought a gorgeous tree from a local grower...finally got it up, where it stayed undecorated for several days.
Then David decorated it and it was beautiful...see: 9 feet tall and awaiting the angel on top.
 Then while I was in the shower, and David was watching TV....

It is back up, but we haven't put the decorations back on.  And it's Christmas Eve.  But one of the wild monkeys has been very sick and in the hospital, so we have just not redecorated it....Hopefully the wild monkey will get to come home tonight or tomorrow and we can have our celebration.
As I was frantically cleaning house, trying to decorate the outside, decorated the inside.......I thought, you know trees, ornaments, ceramic Santas, wreathes, parties, on and on.......Christmas is still all about Him.  And it will come without all the trappings.  Let Jesus be praised..let me worry more about my worship of Him rather than decorations and shopping.
Now that said, I leave you with a favorite picture.

'Twas the day before the night before Christmas, and in the McCaulla house, the puppies were sleeping on top of the couch......

Oh my goodness your poor tree! But you are so right about all the trappings of Cristmas have nothing to do with the real meaning of it. Your babies are beautiful all snuggled on the couch-with visions of dogbones no doubt! Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Oh, look at those gorgeous chi's, they look so contented!
Have a wonderful Christmas all of you and a happy and peaceful New Year.
