HOLIDAY CARDS TO SEND!
FOUND ON PAGE 2 OF MOM'S CARD SHOP

     is such a fun time isnt it? We just love it at our home. It is one of the more joyous times with such a big family! It worries me though when I see everyone getting so cought up in gift giving, don't get me wrong, I know we all love to see that especially wrapped gift with our name on it, but do we give much thought to the "gift" that originated the season? Have I got your attention? I sure hope so. Please get comfy..I plan to have lots of holiday goodies here!

     But before we join the festivities, let me answer the question most people who don't know me are asking right now. YES I really do have nine children, would you like to meet them? Here is MY FAMILY.Well not that we have taken care of the formalities of introduction, lol, Let's move on shall we?

Shop this year at Nature's Infusions!

You are probably like me, you look at how few days we have left and wonder how time flew so fast right? No doubt about it this is time be watching for the sales at the grocery stores. Buying all the goodies that are required for holiday baking. I thought this would be a good time to include some of our favorites around here.. so step into my kitchen (excuse the mess =) and we'll get going.

Mom's Kitchen
Yep! that's the door..HURRY we've already started!


New cookies added!!



I'm sure that we all have a favorite movies during the Holidays.
You can click my soldier friend to learn about our favorites.

Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many,
not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.
Charles Dickens



Everyone knows their ABC's right? Here is a slightly different version.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU FELL DOWN IN THE SNOW AND MADE A SNOWANGEL?

OR HOW ABOUT GETTING A CARROT AND GOING OUT AND PUTTING THE FINISHING TOUCHES ON A SNOWMAN YOU BUILT YOURSELF?

DO YOU REMEMBER BUILDING SNOW FORTS AND TEAMING UP WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND PLAYING ALL DAY?






We all know that the world thinks of the Baby Jesus at this time of year but we need to remember that he did not stay a baby did he? No, He became much more than that in His short life here on earth with us. Will you come with me to see what the Bible says about that very special night? I hope you don't mind I sort of put the story in my own words. [just click the globe on the left]


MY GIFTS TO THE KING

What shall I give You, my Lord? You have need of nothing!

Like the shepherds, I shall give my listening ear, my watching eyes, My constant expectancy~ Believing Your word, O King of Glory, Trusting the miracle of Your Mercy, The wonder of Your gracious, entrance into Your world!

Like the wise men, I shall lay at Your feet my treasures~ My heart...overflowing with adoration, My spirit...with the joy of appreciation, My mind...renewed daily with Your thoughts, My will ....sweetly abandoned to Yours.

Like the lambs attending Your birth, I shall wait in wonder and worship Laying at Your feet my availability~ An incense, pure and precious, Rising night and day to gladden Your heart, Lord Jesus, Emmanuel~God With Us.

"May my prayer be set before You like perfume... my eyes fixed on You, O Sovereign Lord, Maker of heaven and earth." (Psalm 141:2,8

IF WE LIVED...
BUT DO WE?





Above my fireplace a few years back
Well, quite a few since now I have 70 some at last count!

We all have our own way of decorating our homes for the Holidays. Im not much of a collector except for these carolers hand made by Byers Choice LTD. I now have more than 50 and use them to decorate our fireplace mantle. Music is such an important part of Christmas so i just figured that I couldn't go wrong with these. My husband on the other hand would rather I had "fallen in love" with something a little less expensive. =) I just keep reminding him how much I'm worth it. LOL To see my latest addition click HERE

NEW LAST YEAR(2001).... Take a look at my home and the carolers, 2 NEW pages of how I arranged them last year! Enter MY HOUSE LAST YEAR






The stockings were hung on the mantle with care, in hopes that mom would fill them with treasures rare!
Our stockings are all homemade by my mom, these were made for us by Susan

Laura took her stocking to her new home for her first "married" Christmas.

     Anyone who spends anytime creating a webpage like this knows that without the Graphic Designers, there would be some really dull pages. I began gathering Christmas Graphics early this summer in hopes of Creating this page. I didn't make note of where some of them came from. If you see one of your graphics here please let me know, I will more than happy to post your site. Now, that being said I would like to take this time to thank Lisa, it was her graphics that inspired me to begin a page like this. For starters my speckled background here is in her collection.



So long Charles Schultz,
Thanks for the laughter....and for the unforgettable Christmas special.
