ABC's of Christmas

No this is not my house (this was my house 3 years ago) but this is my Christmas tree. It is up (finally) with lights and ornaments. A beautiful tree, but a big pain. My boys all put ornaments on it this year and the little one keeps unplugging all of the lights but I am grateful that the tree is up and everything seems to be falling into some sort of shape.
The boys and I attended and Advent Adventure at church on Saturday and we came home with a pamphlet of information. This was included : ABC's of Christmas
A is for Angels with halos so bright. Whose carols were heard on that first Christmas Night.
B is for Bells so merrily ringing. Joy to the world is the message they are bringing.
C is for Candles that so brightly shine. To give a warm welcome to your friends and mine.
D is for Doorway with garlands of gree. To make Christmas merry as far as they're seen.
E is for Evergreens with fragrance so rare. So plentiful at Christmas their scent fills the air.
F is for Fun the whole season long. From trimming the tree to singing a song.
G is for Greetings a merry "hello". With a heart full of love for people we know.
