The Christmas season is in full effect around here.  The tree is up, the lights are up outside and at least 2 rooms in my house are full of Christmas cheer (the other rooms are full of junk). I attended a Christmas brunch with my mom’s group in early December and it got me...

We had a super duper Christmas.  And now that 2010 is bearing down on us, I figured I better get these memories chronicled.  Prepare for an overload of photos. This is what the week before Christmas was like … Sunday: we made decorated a gingerbread house. It turned out pretty good! ...

The Reason for the Season

Saturday December 26, 2009

One of the things I wanted to do this advent season was memorize Luke 2:1-20 with the kids.  I figured if we started December 1st and worked on one verse a day, we’d knock it out well before Christmas.  Well, we started off on a good foot, but then Mike & I got less...

Merry Christmas!

Our paper newsletter has gone digital. Maybe it’s because I’m so “green”. Or maybe it’s because I couldn’t get it written as fast I could get my cards out. Or just maybe, I didn’t want to be bound by the limitations of an 8.5″ x 11″ paper. Whatever the reason, take a look, have...

Snow Much Fun

Unless you live under a rock, you probably heard the East Coast got a whopper of a snow storm.  Our area got up to 24″;  I estimate our house got closer to 15-17″ but it sure felt like more.   This is how we spent our snowy day. By 11am, we had 8″...

Deck the Halls… Holiday  Home Tour

There a bunch of blog “carnivals” out there featuring people showing off their Christmas decor, so I thought I would play along.   My house is definitely imperfectly decorated, but there are also many parts of my Christmas decor that I love and am happy to share with you!  It’s photorific, so go grab a...
