Sunday Snapshot ~Tree Trimming and Hall Decking~

We decked our halls and wrapped presents today.  It really makes it feel like Christmas when the tree goes up and you start pulling ornaments (memories) out of the boxes.  Soooo much fun remembering where they came from and who gave them to us.  We also placed our new ones for this yr.  Each year I try to have the kids pick out ornaments that mean something to them.  Mainly what they have loved the previous year.  Hannah has taken a liking to penguins....they are cute and cuddly looking.  Claire continues to ask for ice skating lessons.  I have tried to explain our geography doesn't lend to ice being around ANY time of the yr.  Kevin is really loving robots now.  I am sure it is something he has learned from his guy friends....he often walks around saying..."I am a robot I am a robot:" funny little man.  I bought the shopping snowlady...I felt like a professional shopper since I am done by Dec. 5!!!!!!

Love the ornaments. Blessings

Every call has a beginning. A quiet moment when God whispers a promise to a mother’s heart . A holy place where a father bows and faithfully accepts the journey set before him. A miraculous morning that unexpectedly dawns… Casting its first light on a chosen threshold. A gentle knock..a closed door opens, a sacred invitation sent by the Father.. leads to the other side of the world. Where lonely hearts stare out orphanage windows praying for someone to care.. and then one morning, on an ordinary day an orphan’s life changes... God sends them a second chance...Through you..

Favorite Poem

We are a family now, a whole,of which you are a part,and you are just as much our child as any in our heart. We do not love you differently,nor would we give up less of all that life has given us to bring you happiness.There is no limit to our love,no boundary you might cross,no price you may be asked to pay,no need to fear its loss. We are now one, the five of us,windows of one home. As long as we have life and breath,You’ll never be alone.~Nicholas Gordon
