Down Time

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and happy holidays.  I am taking some time off this week to enjoy the family, I hope you are getting to relax as well.  
And for those of you wondering, Harry (dog) will make the card again next year.  This year it just wasn't possible.

Merry Christmas

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.  An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.  But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.  Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.  This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
  Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
   and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2:8-14

 First, thank you for the e-mails and comments about Henry's nursery, details to the new year.  Second, sorry for lack of posts there after, we have been busy.  I have been trying to get work to the point were we can take next week off and Henry has been busy with his Grandfather....
Doing fun things like meeting Santa for the first time.....Henry's first Santa photo followed by margaritas and mexican food with Patrick, Dad and Henry = an excellent start to the week.
Hope y'all are having a great week as well.

Henry's Nursery Today

 There are still several things I am working on in the nursery but I quickly realized that if I waited to have everything finished before posting pictures he would be in college.  My wonderful, amazing and gracious friend Paula of Two Ellie came over to snap some shots for me.  So here is what the nursery looks like currently, details to come (although that may be after the new year).

Thank you Paula, I appreciate your service so very much!!!! I am looking forward to showing the rest.

Quiet Time

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given......

This week I finally got to catch up on some blog reading and I have been following Beneath the Acacia Tree and their adoption process for a long time now.  They have been way up and way down and even though I don't know them, reading along with their story has been so moving.  They are a great example of faith in God's plan even when His plan seems nonexistent.  I was so excited to read everything is finally really happening.  I am sure they would appreciate any prayers over the next few weeks....

After that post I made way over to Three Peanuts where I was introduced to Casa de Alegria and a beautiful story of a family adopting from China as we speak.  As stated in the post title on Three Peanuts, if  ever a picture was worth a thousand words this is it.  Thank you for sharing your story, prayers headed your way as well.

Finally, on a different note, I met a man yesterday who lost his job and is looking for another.  Please pray for him as well.  

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

Quiet Time- Let The Season Begin

Hark now hear the angels sing
A new king born today
And man will live forever more
Because of Christmas-day

Not your normal version, but beautiful nonetheless....

Little something something

Bought this the other day as a little treat, you know when you want to purchase something but you spent all your money on Christmas so it needs to be small, and I must say, I love it.
