The Last Day

Well friends, it is the last day of the year 2011. It has been a challenging year. Time to move on. I don't know what the new year has in store for us, but that is part of the beauty of life. Only God knows what will happen next!

So I thank God for the year 2011, and I welcome the year 2012.  I am trying to make some changes. I don't usually make "resolutions", but making changes and setting goals is important for my development as a Christian, wife, mother... and just a person.

Here are some pictures from the last couple of weeks:

 Cookie making.

 Christmas morning. They were very excited about the candy. Isaac would pull out a piece and say "Healthy AND Delightful!" He is a little comedian.

Words From Henry W. Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day,
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth good will to men.

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

Till ringing, singing on its way
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And in despair I bowed my head
"There is no peace on earth," I said,
"For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men."

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men."

ChRiStMaS FuN *Updated*

We got our Christmas tree this weekend! Isaac and Savannah were so excited about getting a tree this year! :)

Okay, I added more pictures! These are so cute I just had to post more of them... Do you recognize the pj's? They love these. Their MiMi gave them these pj's last year, and it is hard to believe that they were so loose! Now they fit just right. Savannah is wearing a cute little crochet hair clip. MiMi stitched that little piece, and I just attached it to a bobby pin. MiMi, please make more! ;)

She's whispering something in his ear :)
