Long time no see...

But here I am none the less.LOL

It's been a whirlwind month! My gifts are sitting under the tree, wrapped and ready for their new owners. We've already celebrated Christmas with my MIL since she's down south visiting my SIL. I've baked and given out many yummy treats to friends and neighbors AND I received the most wonderful gift from my wonderful MIL. She bought me this...

And because she blessed me, I was able to make this for Evie...

Do you think she likes it? (I just finished another one for Sophia to match.)

Jon went camping and took along a few surprises...


We decided to let the littles wear their Christmas outfits to church this past Sunday. Here's Sophia wearing Evie's dress from when she was three...lol

Here's Evie wearing a beautiful red dress...

Here's Isaac. No, he wouldn't come out. We were almost late.LOL

And here are three cute photos just because...



I'd LOVE to show you all what I've been up to but I can't until after Christmas. Too many snoopy family members and I worked too hard to let them find out early.lol

This year has been a wonderful blessing to me. It's been a year of trial and some hardships, but through those trials, I have come closer to my Father in Heaven and have learned how to trust in Him no matter the circumstances. Hard lessons, but good ones. I am truly thankful to be in God's care. I pray that each of you feel the Lord's presence in your lives this coming year. Thank you all for your support this past year even when I haven't been that faithful of a blogger. You all are great friends and I appreciate you!

Lovely pictures. What fun to have a new "toy" to play with!

Donna said...

Oh, I love the skirt! The "twirling" picture is great. Have fun with that new serger--what a neat blessing!!

And your little ones in the backpack. lol. So cute. Reminds me of when Taylor tried to hide in the car trunk when Lee first went off to college...

It's great to see you back. I've been missing you. :^)

I have missed seeing your family, but what a great post.

The swirling skirt is wonderful. Great job!

Pictures of the children are adorable as always.

Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Too cute with Evie spinning in her new outfit!

NOW I know what a serger is, lol.

And Sophia, that pink dress just sets off that red hair, what a princess!

Isaac is looking like a mini Jon in that photo!

Merry Christmas, my dear friend!
