~These are a few of my FAVORITE things!~

~CHRISTMAS! It's my all-time favorite!  I love the feelings, the family time, the reflecting, the memories, the smells, the lights, the decorations.  =)
But most of all...I love it that Jesus left the splendor of Heaven to be born in a lowly Manger (And then he gave His life)...just so that little ol' me (and you) could know Salvation and live for Him!
~Hats and shoes!~
~BAKING LOTS...and then Sharing my homemade goodies with others.~
~Playing the piano...Christmas songs are my FAVORITE songs to play!
(Our keyboard was "decorated" with Noah's crayons.=)~
 ~5 wonderful fun Children that Jesus has loaned to us!
(picture taken back in Colombia.  I used a big pair of men's socks on Mary's legs so that Mary wouldn't kill her legs and clothes as she crawled around the house.=)~
 ~Drinking teas, coffee, and hot chocolate...especially when we made decorated choc. dipped spoons to stir it with. =)~
~This little Mischievous (chocolate-covered-faced) blue eyed boy.~
My pin that my Grandmother from Tennessee gave me years ago that says "Jesus is the reason for the Season"!~
~These cute little jingle bell-clad shoes...and the cute tiny girl that wears them. =)~
~MY WONDERFUL MAN...Holding his hand still gives me butterflies in my tummy. =)~
~Baking fun treats with our kids~


~Spending time out with my girls. (We were leaving to go Christmas shopping.)
I'd love for you to leave me a comment about some of your favorite things. =)

I LOVE the one picture of Elijah's chocolate-covered face!!! And the one of Mary in her diaper and hair down over her eyes!!! SO ADORABLE!!! It made me laugh!
And the chocolate spoons was SUCH a neat idea!
Love you all much,

I too love the lights and coziness of this time of year. I also have loved peaking in on your home through your blog and seeing the fun things you're doing!
I also love that Jesus left all that he had in Heaven and his heavenly comforts to come and suffer here on earth to pay the price so that someday I can be with him in glory! So glad that I can freely celebrate my life in Christ.Love, Abby Kuhn (Nelsonville WOW)

Your post made me smile! From the precious little guy with the chocolatey face, to the chocolate spoons (I think I'm seeing a pattern here...), to the cute picture of you girls heading out to go Christmas shopping! Christmas is a wonderful time of year, eh?! Blessings on your precious family!

P.S. And thank you for your sweet comment on my "You've got mail" post. AND THANK YOU for praying for me all of those years!! Your prayers were answered, and for that I'm so very, very grateful! He's a wonderful man!!!

I love wrapping gifts and giving them! I also love Christmas programs and the best thing...The Christmas story!!! I also enjoy shutting off the lights and having just the Christmas lights on, it's so peaceful! I enjoy making things to give, it gives me a special joy! Baking cookies and cinnamon rolls with my little girl Jubilee who loves helping me cook n bake! Love, Hannah Klunder
