This is Karina's one gift from us. She wasn't so sure about what to do with it all wrapped up or even after we tore off all the paper, but when daddy put it all together while she napped and she woke up to see her new little kitchen she was thrilled. Of course daddy, cousin Ethan and Auntie Em had to test it all out to see if it worked ;) before the girls were up. As you will see we got her some food to go along with it and her sweet Nana bought her the cutest little mixer and blender. So I would say she is set to be the next food network star! Hehehe.
I am not sure if you will be able to read this poem , but if it's big enough when you click on it again do take the time. Karina's enjoying Uncle Jon's family's cookies!
Danny, Rhema and Rory. Dan was so kind to play the guitar for all our songs.
Tammy, Jonathan and Claire all snuggled up.
Natalie and Joseph playing their jingle bells.I just love this picture of Natalie and Karina. What a sweet big cousin Natalie is!
And on to the cookie decorating...

This is the ornament that my sister gave to me and Jeff last year and yes I had to string some popcorn for old times sake. We used to do it when I was young and I have grown to love the vintage look it gives the tree.
This is the little ornament my sister gave to Karina and I love the little baby shoe that hangs from it.
This wreath was made from scraps from the tree when we bought it and had them cut of quite a bit from the bottom. I also was able to make another wreath for the front door and a swag for another doorway in our house. So it's been a lot of fun and I hope you all have a had a good time making your homes all nice and cozy for the Christmas season. I pray that as we have others into our homes that they would not only see a lovely and warm setting but that they would sense and know the love of God that lives in our hearts and that it would shine brightly to a lost and dying world. Merry Christmas everyone!!
