We have words, and phrases that our whole family has held on to from the children's toddler days. They become new words for us that we don't even always remember are wrong. Does anyone else out there do that? For instance, we all call the restaurant Cracker Barrel, Crackle Barrel. We have done it so long that the real name doesn't sound right anymore. Magazines are sometimes referred to as mazagines, Parmesan cheese is shake cheese, etc... who knows, maybe we will all be depending one day.

Lastly, I discovered this so cool metal basket.... is there any doubt that this is cool?... I actually like it just the way it is, but if you know me at all, well, lets just say it will have to go through a little transformation if it wants to stick around, because I can never let well enough alone, because, well,... I never think it's, well... enough. sooooo stay tuned and see if any of these things make the cut, or go right back where they came from.

Well, not the girls, just the stone creche. But, when I returned home that evening I dropped the flowers off in the Garage, with plans to put them out in the morning.....fast forward to two weeks later and my husband and I remembered them. We felt sheepish and wrote them off as most likely shriveled up and dead...... fast forward to last night. Michael(MDH) was in the garage looking for something for my Dad and found these beauties!!!! Wow, we were astounded. I knew that poinsettias liked the dark, and I guess I knew that they liked the cold, but I did not know that they could go that long without any nourishment. Now that they are under my care, they will be dead by tomorrow morning. LOL.... By the way, we just moved in November, and all the extra stuff is in the garage....My husband and I are avoiding it like the plague!
Have a spirit filled day!!!!, and remember to smile.

Every year my sweet husband takes down the Christmas decorations. Every year I go shopping on new years day. These two events coincide, and so for me, it always feels like the tree, and decorations, just magically disappear along with the stray tinsel and tiny pine needles all over the rug.This year, ....not so much....I think I forgot to go shopping, and he forgot too, and now he is back into his post holiday routine, and I am faced with the not so fun chore of put away. It is always fun to get the house back to normal though isn't it?
Last night in Haven's bedtime prayer she told the Lord that she hoped he would have a good year........I started to explain that God is the same yesterday today and tomorrow, and that he is perfect therefore he does not experience the same highs and lows of emotion that we do etc.. and so on and so forth....then I caught myself. I've been thinking about it ever since. There is nothing like the prayer of a child. So sweet....soooooo
Happy New Year Heavenly Father, I hope you have a good one.

Here are a few Christmas highlights to help you get to know the people you might be hearing about from time to time.
This is our baby, ElizaJane on Christmas morning on her new bike.
