Above it all, I must keep everything in focus. That being two things: remembering and teaching my children about the birth of Christ (we have wonderful traditions that keeps Christ in our Christmas - over the coming months I will share those with you); but also remembering and showing a grateful and cheerful attitude to my family - nothing takes the joy out of gift giving than a grumpy Wife and Mommy, nothing. *Keep it in perspective, Jen - keep your daily priorities to the Lord and your family as you do this, otherwise it is all in vain, yes it is.*
The sun and blue sky is just now peeping out here - what a lovely gift and surprise :) Another lovely gift to our family was my niece, who was born 6 years ago today! Here she is a few years ago, and then here are a few more recent pictures.
My sister made this beautiful dress for her daughter, my niece - didn't she do a wonderful job!
This last picture is of her with her cousins (the blondies are my children) this summer. What a beautiful bunch!
Well, bellies are calling - its off to make lunch! Have a wonderful day!
Love, Jen :)
