And the Stockings are Hung by The Chimmney with Care...

Thursday night a memory was made. Our family had a great night putting up the christmas decorations. The lights were low, we were sipping hot chocolate, a fire was roaring in the fire place, the girls were filled with excitement.

Melia had so many questions,

"What is this thing?" as she puts the stocking on her hand. and "What goes in here?"

"When will the tree light up?"

"Why is it poky?"

The girls played in the tree box, while they waited for the tree to be fluffed and put in place.

Over the next few days I have been able to put everything else in it's place. This is my favorite time of the year; it is so beautiful. I love sitting on the couch, with just the lights from the tree lighting up the room. It is so peaceful and romantic.

Take time this season in all hustle and bustle to find JOY in all of it.

The cats quickly found their place nestled under he tree.

Running after the heart of the Father. Seeking His face in All things. Walking His will out in my life. These are the desires of my heart. Along the way I am a wife and mom who wants to capture memories that will last a life time.
