Happy Birthday… and giveaway


… to three of the most important people in my life.

My mom.
Ken's mom.

I love this day.  I love them so much.

Yep, my mom and Ken's mom were both born on Christmas Eve.  Between the three of them, we will be eating a lot of birthday cake. 🙂

And, in honor of their birthday, how about another giveaway?  Just leave a comment here by Saturday at 11:59pmEDT with a birthday message for my mom and ken's mom.  :)  I will pick a winner of this goodness – my favorite October Afternoon stamp set…


(Oh… the winner of the punch is Grace C!  I will email you.)

And, if you are a fellow believer, here is a fun read.  I just love how it ends.  So very true.  I got it from a drive thru nativity near my house.


And, some good news.  Remember me telling you about Keegan?  He was able to come home from the hospital for Christmas.  First time home in 72 days. He isn't out of the woods, but what a blessing it will be for the holiday to be home.  Keep praying, please.  Bless his little heart.  Here he is for Christmas…


Happy 24th!  I will post again soon.

  5. Hi,

    I would like to thank you for this blog. I accidently find it during my looong hours at work. (work=sitting in wront of my computer for 12 hours). Since then, I have gone home early hours in the morning, head full of ideas how to hopefully brighten up the days of my relatives by sending them home made cards. So many thanks for that!

    Since my work does not regognice the holidays, I have been working all of them, but still I and my husband have made the best effort to enjoy Christmas, even just a little bit! : ). It is our 3th together and all of them have been so different, but still, everyone on its time, the best one ever!

    Life is full of little miracles and I hope we all remember the good things we have in our life, even though sometimes it is really hard to do so.

    And speaking of miracles…

    I wish your moms had a very happy birthday! I’m sure they were the little miracles for their parents some years ago!

    How amazing to have a shared family birthday! It should be a sign of family unity to share your birthday’s with Christ and share special moments with your children’s family of the future. Your families will share something very unique and special to tell stories for many years! Be sure to take pictures year to year, as they will be treasurered and considered a valued tradition for many years to come.
