Christmas Tree

For family home evening we went and picked up a little tree for Kade, he loves it. We learned about the true meaning of the Christmas symbols. Here are a few I found interesting

The Star: A heavenly sign of prophecy fulfilled long, long ago- The shining hope of mankind.
The Color Red: The first color of Christmas, symbolizing that Savior's sacrifice for all.
Christmas Tree: Evergreen- the second color of Christmas shows everlasting light and life. The needles point up to heaven.
The Bell: Rings out to guide lost sheep back to the fold, signifying that all are precious in His eyes.
The Candle: A mirror of starlight, reflecting our thanks for the star of Bethlehem.
The Candy Cane: Represents the shape of the shepherd's crook, used to bring lost lambs back to the fold.
The Wreath: A symbol of the never ending eternal value of love… having no end
  • This little girl sure loves her DADDY, it warms my soul to see them together!

Kade dragging his tree to the car. Kade was so excited to pay his $2.00 for his very own Christmas tree. We went to Walmart and he picked out some lights, I let him get colored I had to tell myself "this is his tree, not mine!" I'm not a fan of colored lights. It was such a fun family home evening.

Angie is selling Christmas tress this year across from Zollingers Cold Storage. She has worked really hard to get everything ready. If your in need a beautiful Christmas tree stop by her little Stand from 2-9 pm. They have the best customer service in the valley, at least that is what she says.
