A week of...

Most of the month of our busy December is behind me!  Our church Christmas drama was presented last night and 5 of us were in it.  It went really well!  Although it will be a busy week, I am really ready to enjoy this week as we prepare for Christmas Day.  This is always my favorite week of the year!

This is a week of...

final shopping
letter mailing
picture taking
taping and re-taping presents that 2 yr olds tried to open
keeping the tree alive and looking good for 6 more days
delivering goodies to neighbors
preparing our home for company
watching Christmas specials
hearing the countdown at least 20 times a day
remembering being a kid
wishing for snow
no school
getting rid of old toys

AND most of all...

Remembering and reminding that the manger is the reason we have the cross!

I hope and pray your week is filled with enjoyable things this time of year brings!
Thank you for following me this past year on our journey! 
 I will be back in 2012 to share more and hope you will join me! 
I have a feeling it's going to be a WILD ride! 
I can't wait to see what God is going to do with us!
Hope you will be there with us!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Hello! and Merry Christmas to you and your wonderful family. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a message. It's always nice to hear from another mother of a large family. Twelve! Wow! That's just three more than me...yet it seems like a lot more! But I bet once you get to that number it doesn't feel all that different from 7 or 8 or 9. At least it's always been that way for me. Going from 7 to 8 - piece of cake! From 8 to 9? handled that fine. From 9 to 10? I bet I'd do it again. IF we ever got to ten, that is. We seem stuck on the number 9, lol. But it's all good :)
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year full of many blessings for your family :)
