oh, the weather outside is frightful...

but the hot tub is so delightful. so since there's no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow." Here's Daddy & Tyler relaxin' in the hot tub, a place where you can find us on most nights. The boys really like it, we take them out there with their little beanies on and keep them down in the water. Some nights, just Jake and I go out, and that too is fabulous....the snow melting into my hot cup of tea....delicious!

I'm really into decorating with fuchsia/pink ribbon, fuchsia pillows, fuchsia blankets, pretty much anything fuchsia and bright...even our Christmas cards are hot pink!! It's such a FuN color.
The Christmas season is here, it always amazes me how quickly it comes....and goes, leaving us with a few new gifts and memories to last. I really want to live a Christmas-lifestyle.

"I sometimes think we expect too much of Christmas Day. We try to crowd into it the long arrears of kindliness and humanity of the whole year. As for me, I like to take my Christmas a little at a time, all through the year. And thus I drift along into the holidays--let them overtake me unexpectedly--waking up some fine morning and suddenly saying to myself: "Why this is Christmas Day!"

Oh my goodness! Everything looks so your place and mine! (Thank you dear one!)

I am so thrilled about the hot tub. I just chuckled to see the smile on Tyler's face. He just knows he is "hot stuff!"

Christmas is my favorite time. I love to just slow down during this time and focus on the beauty and wonderment of it all. I do want to live a life of Christmas...Emmanuel, God with us...all year through.

Love you girl! Kiss the boys!
