The Warm Glow of the Lodge
This was taken just shortly before family started arriving to celebrate Allen Family Christmas. Although it doesn't stay looking like this for very long once everyone arrives, I wouldn't trade the merriment for the tidy look. It's kind of like "Silent Night" versus "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree", both are wonderful parts of the holiday season! Casey and Erica arrived on Friday evening so they could get to take in the decor before the rest arrived. It was another wonderful piece to a perfect holiday. I have come to realize the "perfect" in holiday celebrations comes easiest when I realize things will not be perfect and just enjoy my loved ones.
