A Few Of My Favorite Things
Here is our Christmas Tree. I don't realize how big
it is until I tried to get a picture of it. Standing across
This is my snowman. I love him. When I was brand new
married, my husband's grandmother did green-ware and she
made him for me. Now that she is gone he is more precious
to me. She made beautiful things.
I know this isn't a good picture of my Three Wise
Men, we went to Michigan when my husband had to
go to work there and after his work finished up we
rented a car and drove all over Michigan. We went up
to the upper Peninsula and even went to the Grand Hotel
on Mackinac Island. On our way back we went to
this little town and we went to a Christmas store and
in this store they had these Three Wise Men. I have
never seen them again, so I am glad I bought them when I did.
I really like my elephant that goes with this set.
The kids when they were small would get me pieces each
year for Christmas. I got this set because they are plastic
and I wanted my kids to be able to handle them and play with
them because it gave me a chance to tell them the story
of the birth of Jesus over and over.
This is the very first part of the set. When I was a new
bride my sister-in-law got this for me. I wasn't a Christian
yet so it meant so much more to me when I finally became one.
One of my favorite series of books is a series beginning
with At Home In Mitford, by Jan Karon. This is the
Lord's Chapel from that series where Father Tim preached.
This is his house that he lives in and across the hedge
from him his new neighbor moves in who is named
Cynthia and she writes childrens books.
I found out what my new grand baby is going to be
but I have to wait until she announces it on her blog.
So it has to be a secret. I am over joyed let me tell you.
Every thing looked good. She is leaving for Virginia on
Saturday to spend the holidays with her husband's family.
I am so glad we got to find out today.
