Decorating Begins!

Christmas music, sparkling pine scented candle, hot chocolate, fire burning. Those wonderful things can only mean that you are on your way to getting your home all Christmased Up! Ben and I haven't done a ton yet, but I wanted to show you my newest creation....just don't look too close!

I had been wanting something different than our red stockings...probably from Walgreens! So I decided to "try" and make our own. I just used fabric I had at the house and there you go!

What do you think Ben will say when he gets home? :)

By the way, I am home today because my new job of nannying for the sweetest little 3 month old and 4 month old is only 4 days a week! Great, right?!

"Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress. In the past he humbled the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the future he will honor Galilee of the nations, by the Way of the Sea, beyond the Jordan— The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. You have enlarged the nation and increased their joy; they rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest, as warriors rejoice when dividing the plunder. For as in the day of Midian’s defeat, you have shattered the yoke that burdens them, the bar across their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor. Every warrior’s boot used in battle and every garment rolled in blood will be destined for burning, will be fuel for the fire. For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this." Isaiah 9:1-7

  1. I like them! Very resourceful of you.
    I am constantly looking for new and different ones myself. Always! I guess if I haven't found just the right ones by now I should stop looking. I mean, the kids are almost out of the house for good, for petes sake. Ha.
    Let us know what Ben says! :)
