And Mary said: "My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed, for the Mighty One has done great things for me--holy is his name. His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation. He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble. He has filled the hungry with good things but has sent the rich away empty. He has helped his servant Israel, remembering to be merciful to Abraham and his descendants for ever, even as he said to our fathers."

I love Christmas. It will always be filled with memories from my childhood. And now the memories of my children fill my heart and mind. It is a magical time, and the first Christmas for a baby is even more special.
The lights are up and the tree is trimmed, sweets have been made and Santa's list is ready. Christmas programs have been performed at church, drawing our attention to the Christ Child.
Our family wished you a wonderful and blessed season. We with that Christ would be center stage in all your celebrating, because Jesus is the reason for this season!

Time for joy and time for cheer!
I love Christmas, next to Thanksgiving it is my favorite time of year. Of course seeing the joy and delight on my little ones faces is the best thing! And this year, will be little girls first. Should be a lot of fun. Of course it won't be fun if Santa daddy and I don't get to shopping! We will do like usual and make a whirlwind shopping spree the week before Christmas! It's fun, but man are we tired when it's over.
All the kids are gearing up for the holidays and are enjoying the sights and sounds. We have been busy with our church celebrations as well. Through all the season, I never want to forget what we celebrate. Without the birth of the Christ child, our future would never have been afforded the blessings we have and will recieve. Without the Christ child, we would never have had a Redeemer to save us from our sins. Without the Christ child, there would be no hope of a heavenly home.
So with all the hustle and bustle of the season, our family wishes you all peace and joy and a Merry Christmas. Remember the baby born in a manger, is the same baby that grew to save us all.

The winds are blowing. For where we live it's REALLY cold! :)
The kidis have been pretty good today, so I got a little work done! I wish I had like three days to sit down and just scrap... but my time for that will come when they are older.. and grown. Now I have to remind myself, when I have to get up and check on children or entertain a million times an hour.. I will miss it someday!
Here is a new LO of my youngest attention getter! LOL It was part of a challenge from my FAVORITE website, School of Scrap.
