2. Mina's Nurcracker Collection
While in Savannah we were able to help Mina get her living room decorated for Christmas. When you are a widow with some health challenges, your big family can come in handy!! Will and Douglas were very meticulous in placing the nutcrackers just so in front of the fireplace. And aren't those big ornaments just gorgeous? Mina hangs them by the fireplace every year as the fire place is not operational and there is no danger of fire destroying her pretty things.
3. Epworth United Methodist Church
This was Marvin's home church. Our oldest son was baptized here and we have so many fond memories of this lovely old building. It is no longer a church as it was sold and now is a venue for concerts and programs of all sorts. I remember so many Moravian love feasts held in the church fellowship fall at Christmas. The ladies of the church made Moravian buns and they were served with hot chocolate on the Sunday evening before Christmas. We also attended many Christmas Eve communion services where families came as one and received communion together. I know times change but some changes are challenging. This one certainly was for all of the Grimms.
4. My First Christmas Card
I received my first Christmas card this week. My friend, Carolyn, is moving and she wanted to get her new address out so she would not miss any pretty Christmas greetings.
5. Solar Farms
While driving from Columbus, Ga to Interstate 16 we came across this solar farm. Acres "planted" with solar panels which produce energy for many homes. It looked pretty amazing to me. This part of Georgia has limited uses for planting of crops so this is a win win for the farmers and the community. It made me wonder how many solar farms there are over the USA at this time. Maybe I should GOOGLE that!
