Tis the Season

Tis the Season :: Christmas is upon us !!! This year we decided ( against all I have ever done ) to get an artificial tree . Every year we head to the tree lot but I have always LOVED the white "flocked" trees and have been saving for a pretty one for the last few years. Well, we took the plunge and got a beautiful white tree( and it was super easy with no sticky branches- haha! ) It is such a snowy beauty in my window and Georgia loved putting up the ornaments this year.
We also went to the annual Franklin Santa Parade - one of Georgia's favorite things these days is "the band " so she was excited to see the drums. She is asking for a xylophone for Christmas and a bongo drum set !! Needless to say , the parade made her day!!! Happy shopping and most importantly, let's fix our eyes on JESUS this Christmas!!

Giving Thanks

This year has been FULL of blessings... wow, I am so thankful to the Lord for HIS goodness to us. We headed to Raleigh, NC for Thanksgiving with "the fam" and enjoyed some much needed REST and good eats!! This was Georgia's 3rd time on the airplane and Violet's first - they did amazing and were awesome holiday travelers! I love my mom - she has the biggest heart and she served us well all week - cooking and hosting is a big job for 12 people!!
Lord Jesus, thank you for so richly pouring out your blessings this year and doing MORE than we could ask or imagine. You truly are the giver of Good things. Thank you for sending your son to die on the cross so we could have freedom in you. We are so very THANKFUL ! - Amen
