Happy Birthday Jesus!!!!

As we drive through our little town most of the wayside pulpits have the same message to share.

"Jesus is the reason for the Season"

Reminded that we need to share that message to all the world, and to the little souls in our home, we hosted a birthday party for our Lord and Savior on Christmas Eve.

We may not know the exact day and time of his entrance into this world, but we can celebrate it all the same.

What a special Holy Night!!!



Michael!!!

There we go!

Very cute Rachel - sporting her new earrings

Out of the Mouth of Babes

This little boy is about the cutest little 3 year old name Michael Joseph that ever lived, will live, or lives now.

I know, I am SLIGHTLY prejudice, but I can't help it!!!

I love to come to hug him, kiss him, and see his smile light up.  His eyes have a light that shines and his smile is so sweet and precious.

First I hug him, then he looks up at me, he wraps his arms around me, and says...

Me think me kind of loves you!!!

He loves to say this.  He tells everyone this.  The other day we were playing Ghost in the Graveyard with our neighbors and he told their 14 year old son.  Caleb came out of hiding saying "Michael thinks he kind of loves me."

If he doesn't think he kind of likes you, there is always this. 

Me think you are kind of crazy!!!

Yep, that too is a favorite saying of his.  

Which ever he tells you... tell him you kind of love him back!

The 8 Polish Christmas Foods

Whether your a veggie snob or not...

You haven't lived until you see this movie!!!

Christmas Preparation part one

Note that this is part one, even though part two (when it comes) will before these photos in order...


First don your best hat and shawl.  Sit on the ugliest green sheet you can find.

Then dress in black and Christmas colors to play at a local tour of homes as background music. 


Then play the "barnyard sounds" game until your family take it away.

Start the advent calendar 5 days in advance (this keeps it interesting)

Smile beside the tree for your photo!

Keep smiling!



Build a fire!!! 

Take a photo of your lovely sister.

Group as many large red, string balls on one branch as possible

Deck the halls with twinkle lights

collect the stuffed ornaments of Rudolph, Santa, and the Christmas Penguin and HUG them!!!!

Continue to build the fire....

Film this entire event because you have to see it to believe it.

Set up the clay nativity!!!!!!

Um... I can only say... It looks better in person.

Hang your cat on the highest ladder.
