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! ...

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...

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″...

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...

Tis the season!  November is so busy, December always seems to sneak up on me.   But we love our advent calendars, so I have to dig out the Christmas stuff in time for the kids to open them up. We have three different advent calendars in our house, which works works well now that...

Festival of Lights

We snuck in one last “Christmas” tradition tonight by driving out to see the Bull Run “Festival of Lights”. (my pictures got a little blurrier when we were moving). We had everyone decked out in their jammies, so that they would easily transfer straight to bed after the  night out.  Despite Sam’ claims of...

We had a wonderful celebration.  We went to Grammy & Grandad’s for Christmas Eve day.  There, we hung out with family (my aunts & uncle were in town), along with cousin Owen.  Activities included reading lots of books, decorating sugar cookies, and riding bikes.  In the evening, we attended the children’s service at our...
