It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

... and while it may not be snowing, it certainly is feeling festive here at the Hallahan house!

Enjoy a glimpse into our Ugandan Christmas preparations thus far!  Wish we could celebrate with all of you- but we're just where God wants us.  Remembering this time last year- waiting- wondering when we would ever get to Uganda... and now we're here.  so grateful.  right here. 

listing my gifts- during our tropical advent (#5207-5213):

 fabric scrap garland. snowflakes from home.  pieces of home.  pieces of here.  

 little boys playing with the nativity by candle light.  no power can sometimes be nice.

 advent envelopes.  they traveled from New Jersey to Uganda.  traditions are good for the soul.  

 Jesse Tree.  keeping our Christmas Christ-centered.

 fabric scrap wreath.  handmade beauty.  "using what we have" simplicity.

our family. together. in this together. seeking You together. serving You together.

 hand-carved nativity. from Arua Uganda.  You, the very best Gift.
