Something I'm Grateful For

As 2013 comes to a close, and 2014 is almost here, I wanted to post this picture, because it reminds me of one of the many, many things I am grateful for: our home & land. How gracious God has been to us!
It has been a wonderful year on our land.
May we never lose our gratefulness to God for all He gives us!

Christmas! - Part 2

Mom opens the largest present of all -- a bowl big enough to feed an army! ;)

The excitement mounts...

"Hooray!"


Flying his 'copter

Sweet rolls and more for a beautiful brunch...


Cute


The afternoon was filled with projects



Playing Nathaniel's new game -- PicWits!

It's quite fun!

And this game, "Man Bites Dog," was a hit, too!!!!

A headline Dad created...

..and one of Nathaniel's

Reading is a favorite Christmas past-time, with new books all around!

The beautiful dinner table


At Wednesday Night Bible Study that evening, the guys talk to Mrs. Y. :)

Ava & Deborah

The cake

Festive and fun!

What a wonderful Christmas -- full of generosity, laughter, family togetherness, and the remembrance of Christ, Who humbled Himself and came down to earth for us...

Christmas! - Part 1

A gorgeous tree on a gorgeous (maybe "exciting" is a better word) morning!

We wake up and come downstairs for Bible Time...

Racing mice from stockings! ;)




The view out the living room window


Excitement :)


Enjoying a present! ;)









Love that face! :)




Mom does such a beautiful wrapping job - loads of ribbons!

More of Mom's handiwork
