Happy Monday and New Week Sister's !!!

Our Nativity Tree Topper

Kent and I found it, 4 years ago at a really special shop in a place called the Old Market in Omaha Nebraska ((above)). By the name of Tenenbaums, where its Christmas any
time of the year..

Greetings Sweet Friends and how are all of you??? It is going to be FUN hopping by many of your, after Christmas post's this week.~~~~Click on over to visit Sally at Smiling Sally for another~~~ Super BLUE Monday join in the FUN~~

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY Jacob and Tommy" they both have BIRTHDAY's this week and this was the two of them at ages~ Jacob 2 and Tommy 1 Christmas of 1995,,,THANK YOU LORD , we made it,, Woooohoooo !!! This was taken the Christmas 2 months before my 1st Husband died of S.L.E. So it's a bittersweet photo ..

This is Jacob on Christmas Day this year.. On January 1, 2011, he will be 18 yrs old.. He was Red Oak's/ Montgomery County's New Years Baby for,
the year of 1993 !!!
Ahhh Ohhh, 18, we better get prepared, as I'm sure he will be thinking he can do just about anything then...NOT happening Sister's as long as we able to use the we follow God in this house and the not under our roof card ;0),,, Jacob is usually a good boy but still I ask~~~ HELP us LORD~~~Amen

And this fine young man of 16 today the 26th of December 2010 is Tommy...
Our want to be, Linebacker in a few years. He is a cutie pie...Born the day after Christmas in 1994, and is a delight. Of course, he isn't turning 18 yet so we have a couple years before he does the "I'm 18 now on this Mom and Dad... THANK YOU Jesus!!!

Pete and Sissi, ((she just wasn't in the mood for Mommy here to take pictures of her, she was waiting for her brand new Chewy Treat that her Daddy had by the tree))...
It was soooo great also this Christmas, because God did some wonderful work on my oldest sons heart, that's right, Pete showed up for a few days to spend Christmas at home and then with a few friends on Christmas Eve.
Yes Sister's, I did shed a few tears when he left late Christmas night to get home in Nebraska for work the next morning..
Get this, he left our gifts at his house, ah well, he'll give me my rock with a smiley face painted on it when I see him next, ( I LOVE to get rocks from my kids, it was a thing they did as kids when we couldn't afford to buy anything for me.
I'd just say, a rock will be perfect. So its now tradition.. :0) ...
Then when Pete left here for his house, he forgot his PJ's in the Den ... CUTE

Above is our front tree, I am just NOT a photographer, can you some how sense that??? ;0) therefore, I couldn't seem to fit it all into one photo, thanks for coming along with my post's all these times being aware of that issue ;0)

Below is a part of the front of our home, can you see the Cross??
Super~Hubb's decorated it all up with Red and White, Red for Christ's blood and White for His purity. and see the hint of BLUE in the sky and background????

Praying that your Christmas was a Blessed day .. That all the foods you'd eaten, cooked or baked was to your delight Sweet Sisters. And that your home was full of the Spirit of Christ during the entire time and that He still lingers there, in your hearts and in your homes with His Presence....
Keep Christmas, Jesus, always in your hearts dear Sister's ...
Love, Prayers and Wishes and Hugs Dena
