The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

Finally..... All Decorated for Christmas



Thought I would share my holiday "tweaking"! Im finally all decorated! I love this time of the year!! Now Ive got to get some presents under the tree and Christmas cards out in the mail. Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season, getting in the spirit, and most of all remembering the true reason for the season!

This is something I made last year being that is was the first year without my PawPaw, a poem called Christmas in Heaven, I made several and gave to my MawMaw,mom, aunt,sister, and one for me, just something to help us remember even though we miss him so much he is in a wonderful place having the most joyful Christmas ever!




These are two of most favorite ornaments on my tree, the first one is an angel that was on my moms tree when I was a little girl and I remember it always being on our tree and now its on my tree.
The second ornament my aunt found for me last year, as you may remember PawPaw and I sang you are my sunshine to each other, My aunt said she wasnt at all looking for an ornament, she just walked into Belks last year Christmas shopping, and it was like the ornament on the tree was just shining, like here I am buy me for Jennifer and Christi (my sister), she said it was like PawPaw was talking to her telling her to get these for us, letting us know he was ok and we were still his sunshine! WOW! When she gave it to me and told me that, I lost it! You are my sunshine PawPaw, I miss you!



These pictures are of past Christmas of Sam and Santa, I Love the first one, he was 2 and this was the first time we got him to sit in Santas lap, he wouldnt take his eyes off of him to look at the camera for a picture, but I love it!




Has anyone heard of uppercase living... http://www.uppercaseliving.com . I am addicted to this stuff. My friend is a rep and Im thinking about selling it if I dont get pregnant soon. These are a few pictures in my house of things I did with uppercase living. What do you think?





Just a few more of my decorations.....
I love my nativity scene, this ceramic tree was my grandmas.







Hope everyone has a great weekend, we are going to the christmas parade Sat, and Sam and other little ones from church are gonna go caroling Sat night!
