Emmanuel... God with us!

So it seems I've been caught up in this Christmas whirlwind along with everyone else. I've been so busy I barely have time to eat (which I seem to want to do all the time these days), yet alone blog. But things are slowing down. I've bought my last gift, & I've only got a couple more to wrap.

I'm actually able focus on the real reason behind all this hustle bustle.


And the fact that He came to this stinky smelly earth (as the kids in my Christmas program so eloquently put it) For us!

For Me!

Now that's a reason to celebrate!

This & That..

So this is our tree. I found this tree in the attic when we moved here, and figured I might as well give it a try. It was in horrible shape, most of the branches were broken off and limply hanging there. So I armed myself with wire and tape and a lot of patience. Many hours later, after lots of piecing and rigging this is the finished result. It may not be perfect, but since my two favorite guys helped me decorate it, it's perfect enough for me!

If you were to visit our house on any given day, this is what you might find. Keegan found this bowl in my tupperware cabinet and was just tickled to find that it fit perfectly on his head. So now I periodically find him running around for long periods of time with his "red hat". Oh well, at least he has his own sense of style, right?

Keegan is just thrilled that he found this great new product for his hair... a.k.a - mashed potatoes!

I'm a little behind on this one... but anyway, this is Chip's family at Thanksgiving. Bennett proposed to the lovely Jennifer just two days after this picture... I couldn't be happier about this. I'm just SO excited about this wedding!
