With Christmas literally right on our heels, I've had the urge to read through some verses that remind me of this awesome season.

Luke 2:15-16...When the angels had returned to heaven, the shepherds said to each other, “Let’s go to Bethlehem! Let’s see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.” They hurried to the village and found Mary and Joseph. And there was the baby, lying in the manger.

Isaiah 9:6...For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Rachel Olsen is doing an advent countdown with short daily devotionals. Check it out!

On the home front we're back in order from out trip. The laundry is done and the kitchen is restocked ($250 at walmart, why is it that I let things get so low? And there wasn't any meat involved in this total. One of James' coworkers shot a deer and we purchased the meat from the butcher). I'm still suffering from my sinus infection, today is day one of the antibiotic so hopefully I'll be turning a corner soon. I have a few more Christmas gifts to make. I've been plugging away at it and did get 4 things done yesterday. Here is one gift that I can share because it has already been given! These coordinating shirts are for Jeb & his baby brother Caleb. I used this kit and this one.

Now Jameson and I are off to create some fun button, paper, pin tree to decorate the house. I got all of the supplies out and into bowls so the assembly should be fun for both of us! I'll post pictures! Hope you're having a wonderful December and enjoying all of the magic of this awesome season!

I hope one of James' co-workers didn't shoot a "dear", but rather a "deer"! That would be really sad. Love you! (:
