Advent Photo A Day — Day 7 “Ready”

For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.”
 Romans 8:19

I am pretty sure this is one of the last years in which my mother, my brother and I got ready for Christmas together.  After that, someone was always traveling or delayed.  Now the house in which we grew up is gone and our Christmas preparations are particular to our own families and homes.  But I miss getting ready for Christmas with mom and Bob.
