Chestnuts roasting on an open fire....

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire? Have you ever really thought about that? How would one roast chestnuts? On an open fire? Wouldn't they fall in? Do you roast them on a stick like you do a marshmallow? Too...much....thinking.....I really just wanted to do a quick post and let you know that we've officially started the Christmas season! We decorated the Christmas tree on Friday night and it was such fun! We all got in our pj's, made hot chocolate and eggnog, put on the movie, Elf, and decorated away!! I really love pulling out our ornaments every year and seeing my kids faces light up with the memories of years passed. I love talking about what the season is really all about....Jesus. And we all enjoyed Adiah being with us this year! Last year our hearts were ACHING for her. And now she is with us and I literally have to say at least 10 times a day...."Adiah, don't take the ornaments off the tree!". Music to my ears!! Enjoy the pictures!!

Look at all those stockings!! Craziness!! I never dreamed of having such a big family but thank God for HIS plans!!

Everything looks beautiful! I especially love seeing all SIX of those stockings! I know you will all enjoy seeing Adiah experience her first Christmas. What a blessing!

Gorgeous! Now, will you come over and help me? It's kind of boring doing all this decorating by ones-self! I plan to get started today and hopefully will be finished by the end of the week. It's so good to see all those "stockings hung by the chimney with care". Can't wait to experience Christmas with the two new ones this year. What a blessing!

Your home is so beautiful all decorated for Christmas!

I would love to be there to see Adiah and Hannah enjoying their first Christmas....How Blessed they both are to share in the celebration of the Birth of Jesus with their famlies.
