1st Christmas Decoration at Home

Our primary Christmas decorations at home are centered around the front window in our living room.  Margaret, with some help from me, has been working on that area the past few days.  (Margaret is the resident home decorator!)

This is the view from inside.  The platform, skirt, train set, and tree stand were put together by our friend Ron Jones and given to us, along with the tree, for Christmas last year.  This year we added the country church as our first building under the tree.  The red clothed dolls on either side of the tree belonged to my mother.  They are animated, the arms and heads move back and forth slowly.  The small doll in the wicker stroller on the lower left was a gift to my mother when she was a little girl.

Here is the view from outside.  You can see the train below the tree in this picture.  The train runs only occasionally when we manually turn it on.  Everything else stays on all the time.

In His name,
Chaplain Sam Houchins
