~peeks of Christmas~

Didn’t get around to many posts this month. One day while the older children were doing school, I let Gabe and Jules decorate some sugar cookies. Decorating is as much fun as eating!

The new star I found this year for my tree. Retired the gold and red angel after a decade.

Baby Jesus sleeps in a manger next to our tree. I asked Ben to build a manger this year. It just felt like something was missing ’til we placed baby Jesus, wrapped in swaddling clothes, (aka, ripped up old shirt) in the straw under the branches in the manger. The children played with Him everyday.

Hmm.. I love Jesus. I love my husband, Eric. I love my 8 beautiful children. I loved living in California. I love sunshine and the beach. Shopping at farmers market and the little stores downtown where I can bargin for the best deal. I love to sew and make things. I love spending time with girlfriends encouraging each other. Date nights with Eric are fabulous. I love ballroom dancing with him. The smell of my new little baby and the miracle of their existance. I love italian food- or just about all of Italy for that matter. I love art- paintings on my wall that I know personally who painted them.

    Decorating cookies is so fun! Your Christmas stuff is all so pretty! Your tree especially looks like it was professional decorated and not the fact you’ve got a baby in the house 🙂
