Goodbye 2011, Hello 2012

My babies are sleeping and I should be prepping/cleaning for our New Years Eve celebration but instead I am looking through this year's pictures.  2011 was a good year - here are some my favorite memories. 
I always feel a little sad at the end of a year - how did it go by so fast?  But I'm also excited. I love making goals and thinking about what the new year may bring. Here are some of the things I hope to accomplish in 2012.

A couple new things this week: a hair cut, a purse, and a bracelet.  The bracelet is by far the most exciting. It was a Christmas gift from husbandie, he designed it and made it himself!  The silhouettes are our three babies. I'm still not sure how I managed to bag such a sweet and talented guy but I'm very thankful he's mine.  Check out these to sites to see lots of other moms having fun with their clothes

Celebrating

Sandwiched in-between multiple Christmas gatherings and New Year's there is an event that must be celebrated....

Husbandie's birthday! With the holidays so close (and busy) we usually don't do too much, but we have great memories from every year.


It is one of my favorite days. It is the day were I get to celebrate the person who is my love, my best friend, my encourager, my helper, my strength, and so much more. 
Husbandie - you are an amazing blessing to me.  I love you! Happy Birthday!

This is not a small grace but instead the only reason we can enjoy any of life's small graces - Immanuel: God is with us


Merry Christmas!

Looking at Lights

Every year we like to drive around and look at Christmas lights. It's fun to see how creative our neighbors are and it's a great excuse to have popcorn and hot cocoa for supper.

This year however we added a twist. Inspired by our pastor's family, we decided to hand out little rewards to our favorite houses.  Each of the boys made a card which we then attached to small box of chocolates. 

Inside each card we wrote a short note thanking our winner for decorating and explaining that their lights were a favorite.  We also included Isaiah 9:2 which prophesies the birth of Christ

The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light;  those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness on them has light shined.
