Hallelujah


Night before last as the winds came blowing through I peeked out the living room window to find this lovely scene. I love snow!!! We didn't get much because it soon turned into rain that fell throughout the night. But...Ooh, the winds continued to get stronger until our temperatures dropped dramatically! It was sooo strong, that it about blew my Sisters and I through the parking lot at Cracker Barrel. And of course, we were running and squealing with laughter the whole way! We Musser girls can be quite silly at times and I am blessed with a bunch of wonderful siblings.


This photo was supposed to go on Facebook. It was a Christmas gift, lovingly made by our former Pastor's wife some years ago. I just love handmade gifts. The giver, leaves you with a piece of themselves that stays with you forever.


Hallelujah! The tree has been finished for a couple of days now and I so love to sit by it's light in the evening. The tree always takes me back to my childhood when
times were simpler. Christmas was a gift in itself.
The tree isn't leaning the photographer just didn't line this up well...Hmmm...wonder who that was?


This year I didn't decorate near as much as I usually do. I just didn't feel the need and I guess with age comes wisdom. I am learning to do what I can and don't sweat the small stuff. Which, at times is hard for me! But, I am finally slowing down a bit...less stress...better life.


And I leave you with this shot (get it) of Tomers trophy which hangs in the playroom.
Hey, he has to be a part of the festivities too! I Pray that you are all enjoying this time of preparation...Christ the Saviour is born.

Love to All!

I love the snowflakes too! The house looks warm and inviting! What time do I show up for hot chocolate? I think each of us sisters should post their Christmas decorations on their blogs that way we can all get a glimpse of what it looks like!

What a beautiful Christmas tree, perfect, I'd say.
I'm happy for you getting snowy weather there's something about December and snow. At least when I was younger, there was.
Only thing I wonder is how will Rudolf find his way to our home while hanging on your wall?
