mama mondays: a photo and song for christmas 2010

Merry Christmas 2010 to the readers of Peace Garden Mama! Thanks so much for taking time this year to pop in every once in a while to catch a glimpse of what’s been going on in our lives. Your engaging and sweet thoughts have been life-giving time and again. I do not take this wonderful exchange for granted!

We really did have a lovely, and very WHITE Christmas this year. After a small celebration here at home, we traveled to Minnesota to enjoy Christmas Eve and Day with extended family near the shores of the very frozen (and ice-house packed) Lake Minnewaska.

On Christmas Eve, my dear mother-in-law, Bev (Mom #2), and I had the chance to sing a Christmas duet at Troy’s childhood church. Our piece took place at a time in the service when most of the lights were out, and only candles illumined the room. Thanks to my 13-year-old daughter, our song was recorded (PGMII folks, please go to the Blogger to view video). I hope you’ll enjoy our rendition of “I Wonder As I Wander” from the evening of Dec. 24, 2010.

May all that is good and loving and hopeful about Christmas continue to live in your hearts in the weeks and months ahead!
