We’ll be ringing in the New Year

We’ll be ringing in a New Year with our Christmas bells.

We’ve had a lovely Christmas! Grandparents, aunt, uncle, and cousins made for a festive Christmas day!  From start to finish it was wonderful; From the children waking and checking our nativity’s manger to tucking the tired tykes into bed that night.

My parents stayed on through snowstorms and left just this morning.  (Yes, we had another white Christmas!) We were spoiled to enjoy the extra  visiting time with them.  It was also nice that Grandma and Grandpa got to watch the children exploring their new gifts.

And what wonderful presents they were! My sister and parents gave them musical items this year: Handbells for the whole family, chromatic bells for me, recorders for Kendra and Keianna, a beautiful little lap harp/plucked psaltery for Kaira, percussion for Keegan, and even a small set of baby instruments for Kieran!

I joked that we may need to rename our school “Cacophony Christian School”, so much joyful pandemonium filled the air!   May we use our new toys and tools to make a joyful noise unto the Lord!

Over the weekend I hope to get a collage of  Christmas photos arranged, but for now, here’s one of Kieran enjoying his new instruments.
