MERRY CHRISTmas Sweet Sister's On This Beautiful PINK Saturday!!!

Do stop by Beverly and have some fun and make some friends @ How Sweet The Sound
for this weeks Beautiful PINK Saturday!!!

This was taken from old Ideal's books from my childhood. I have found that the pages in them still warm my heart.

GREETINGs Sweet Sister's,, MERRY CHRISTMas to each one of you on this truly Blessed day!!!
Beverly's question for all of us is~~~What are we doing today. So let me share this~~~
Here at our house we are REJOICING in the day that the world Celebrates the birth of a baby that was and is,, The Christ~ Immanuel~ The Messiah~ Kings of Angels !!!

In celebrating Him our house will be somewhat full of not only the 5 of us but, Pete is home until Christmas night. He arrived on Thursday after work and the first thing he did was ~~~Laundry...Now he isn't a college student but shared with me that he didn't have time before to get his work clothes washed~~~Fun...
At least he will fold them, I think. I do sooooo LOVE my oldest son, and prayerfully, we will get some photos this time to share.

We're also very Thankful for the snows that God let fall starting on that Thursday night. Wooooooooohoooooo!!!

And then there is all the cooking~baking of which we began on Christmas eve like many of you did I'm sure.. We are having our our Mom's here and my step dad ( once removed) (if that makes sense) and his new wife.. LONG STORY and Super~Hubb's and I don't like them to be alone on any of the Holiday's,..
And then when all is calm and quiet, the boys are in bed, Kent and I will make salad and eat that while we watch "Christmas with the Kranks" :0)

Now on Christmas Eve, Kent and I had a dance~date by our Christmas Tree,,,BEAUTIFUL..
I was in a prettier ensemble for the event than this photos shows, We just didn't have the camera for it. Since we had money's all spent on the boys and everyone else, he and I chose the Christmas Tree Dance on Christmas Eve as a gift to each other..We do every year..

Out our kitchen window

And God blessed us here in Iowa with a White Christmas once again...

And my hope and prayer is for you to know this~~~No matter the miles or distance apart, Sisters in Christ like You, stay close to my heart...
You are an Awesome woman of God and His ways...
Thanks for being YOU!!!
Merry Christmas~~~May our Sweet LORD cover You with blessings while you seek Him in this, His beautiful season.
Isn't it magnificent knowing He is the Reason for every Season...I'm sooooo very blessed that He directed me to such Beautiful Blogging Sister's ..Truly, You sooooo warm my heart......Hugs Dena
