Mary- Did You Know

See Video Here During the Christmas season when we focus on celebrating the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, I can’t help but think of the Crucifixion as well. They are inseparable, without either one there would be no salvation and redemption. Growing up in church I was told many times how God gave His… Continue reading Mary- Did You Know

DIY Keepsake Ornaments

As I spoke about in a previous post, the children are given a new ornament each year.  I try to buy the ornaments while on our summer vacations, but to be honest that is hard to do sometimes.  If I was content with buying a mass produced ornament at a big box store it would… Continue reading DIY Keepsake Ornaments

Ornaments, Tradition, & Tapestries

When Cheyenne was about 3, a wonderful lady shared about buying ornaments for her grandchildren to hang on the "cousins tree" in her house.  Each Christmas the cousins would all come over and were given a new ornament to go on the tree and would then decorate the tree with ornaments from years past.  I… Continue reading Ornaments, Tradition, & Tapestries

Mary, Did You Know?

During the Christmas season when we focus on celebrating the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, I can’t help but think of the Crucifixion as well. They are inseparable, without either one there would be no salvation and redemption. For many years I pondered on Mary, what it must have been like for her. The… Continue reading Mary, Did You Know?

Christmas On The Farm

Christmas this year brought an unusual sight in Texas- snow! We had a wonderful time with family gatherings at my Grandmother's house, my parents house, and my in-laws house.  Each year you can count on fun, family, and good food.  This year was no exception. I am not surprised by the snow, not because it… Continue reading Christmas On The Farm

A Merry Christmas – What A Great Weekend

My daily posts have been delayed since my Thursday post because me and my little nest have been celebrating our Christmas together.  You may find this odd, but then my family is odd in a sense (or more than one sense) but it is odd in a good way. For long before I entered this… Continue reading A Merry Christmas – What A Great Weekend

All That Glitters…

All that glitters may not be gold, but it sure is pretty!  Which is good, because the floors in my house glitter, the table glitters, my laundry glitters, and the interior of the truck glitters. It seems that when you work with glitter it just gets everywhere, kind of like sand at the beach.  As… Continue reading All That Glitters…

Wall’s Family Farm- A Great Place for Family Fun

I am one of those who likes to give Thanksgiving its due.  I don't take down the pumpkins or the garlands until Thanksgiving has arrived and we are stuffed full of good food.  But once that happens- we roll into Christmas with gusto.  First stop on the Christmas parade is the tree. Each year it… Continue reading Wall’s Family Farm- A Great Place for Family Fun
