Waiting for the train! Only a little bit late so far!



Well, we have arrived home and spent the day quietly preparing for Christmas.
The tree is ready except for one little, but very special new decoration!


A sweet little train I bought in Spain .
It is just waiting for a bright ribbon and our Grandson to be born.
Then it can be hung on the tree to remind us every year of his first Christmas.


We have had these little brass decorations for over twenty years but this one depicting Mary on the donkey making her way to Bethlehem where baby Jesus was born seems even more special this year!
