Our Maple Tree

Keeping up with The Maples

Life lately has been a whirlwind. We have spent weeks at hospitals, hotels, driving from city to city and ultimately a funeral. Randy’s dear grandmother passed away last week. It was terribly sad, but we take comfort in the fact that she is now in her true home, in the arms of the Father. Now we are picking up the pieces and trying to get back to the normalcy of life.

Because we have been away from home, we are just now decorating for Christmas. I am thrilled to have Randy’s family for Christmas this year! It will have a touch of sadness due to the circumstances, but the important thing is, is that we are spending Christmas together as a family. I think that is what grandma would want, her family enjoying each other’s company.

This year we went to a chose-n-cut tree farm for our Christmas tree. I knew that the precut ones were going to be rather dry, since it was so late in the season. So we got ourselves a nice fresh tree! It was a lot of fun picking out a tree! I hope to continue to do this every year for Christmas!


We are running around the house now, trying to get everything ready in time for Christmas! Hopefully, it will all be ready in time! Either way, it is still going to be fun to have family over for the holidays! What are your plans for Christmas?
