Christmas 2018 Recap!

Hey Everyone!

My family had a really wonderful Christmas this year! It was amazingly not stressful! Until this holiday season almost every holiday or birthday for as long as I can remember something has gone at least slightly wrong or different parts of our family were super stressed. It was really awesome to be able to just enjoy our time with both sides of our family! I am so thankful that this Christmas season went well.

I want to share some picture I took of our nativity scene. I hope you enjoy them!

Another candle picture, I shouldn’t have too many more now that Advent is over.
They look so peaceful.
A cute succulent plant.
Aren’t her wings beautiful?
One of the three kings.
Mary and baby Jesus! Isn’t it so beautiful?!

How was your Christmas? What is your favorite Christmas food? Which of these pictures do you like best?

Merry Christmas!

(Sorry that this post was short! I should be back to my normal posting schedule next week!)

Thanksgiving!

Hey Everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving (a few days late)!! I want to share some of the things I am Thankful for this year! Without further ado, here you go! πŸ˜€

MUSIC

I am so Thankful for music! Music is so amazing, I listen to music almost constantly, either on our family computer or on my phone while I am doing school. I don’t know how people lived before they could listen to music at home! πŸ˜€ 

Some of the songs I have had on repeat recently are:

A beautiful cover. Right?

BOOKS:

I LOVE reading so much! Sometimes I think that without books I would go crazy. Books are such a gift from God! I am so glad that there are many talented people who love to write and are willing to share their stories with us! I am so Thankful for our wonderful library system that makes it possible for me to get new books to read regularly. 

Several of the books/series I have really enjoyed this school recently are:

All the books that I currently have out of the library.πŸ˜€

MY FRIENDS:

I have a couple of amazing friends who I have gotten to know better this year. I have been pen-pals with one of them for several years, but this year we have gotten very close! The other friend I am thinking of I have known (sort of known of) since kindergarten when we did homeschool stuff together. For a long time our families didn’t do anything together, but last year and this year we started doing things together, again. I have really enjoyed getting to know this friend!Β 

You two know who you are (at least I hope you do!)! I am so Thankful to have you as apart of my life! Thank you for being my friends!

Another friend who I am Thankful for is someone who is like an older sister to me! Thank you for all the letters you write me and everything!! I am so Thankful for you!

Isn’t this great? I saw it somewhere and I just had to repost it.Β 
Some friends and one of my amazing sisters.

MY FAMILY:

I am so blessed to have the amazing family that I have! I so admire my parents and I am so Thankful that I am their daughter! I am so Thankful for every single one of my wonderful siblings! I love you guys!

I am also so blessed to have my grandparents be in my life so much! I am so Thankful for my amazing Tia! They are all such a blessing to me and our whole family!

This isn’t all of my siblings. πŸ˜€

What is something you are Thankful for? How was your Thanksgiving?

Thank you for taking the time to read this! Have a wonderful week!

These are our verses for this week:

Colossians 3. 14,15

Above all clothe yourselves with LOVE, which binds everything together in perfect harmony, and let the peace of christΒ  rule in our hearts to which indeed you are called in the one body. And BE THANKFUL!

What is something that you are thankful for? I am really thankful that it was warm and sunny this week. My dad was haying and the hay doesn’t dry out unless it is warm and dry.Β 

Do you have a favorite book of the BIBLE? My favorite book of the BIBLE is definitely Psalms!

Thanks for reading this!πŸ˜€
