Sunday Snapshot- Prepartations

Just like everyone else there has been a lot of preparations around here. Seems as they all love their own parts.  Miss Kate, in her cool relaxed manner, just loves to hang out and see what everyone else is up to. 
These cookies were Riley's creation.  This boy loves to cook and bake.  The good news is we gave most of these away but I see another batch in our future.  I wasn't sure the kitchen would survive but a huge mess is so worth the memories! 
Truly a time for reflection on all the blessings of our life.  Hoping through all the wrapping, cookies, parties, that the true meaning of giving is being shown to our little loves!

Favorite Friday Photo-Christmas Carols

This Christmas season has found this little musician a little busy.  She has played in front of a crowded church and will do it again on Tuesday night. You would think she would be a little nervous, after all I was nervous for her.  She takes it all in stride and apparently loves to play with really no nerves. 

I love Christmas music and hearing her play it daily has been a treat.  I believe in my heart this is the talent God gave her.  It was bitterly cold this night in this little country church as I listened to Katie play. It is in these moments I think of her birth parents, hoping in some way their hearts hear the music of this little one.

Favorite Friday Photo- Tears and Trees

We have all seen those movies that are the Hallmark kind. The family goes out to find the tree on a beautiful day and right in front of them is that beautiful tree with children singing Christmas carols all around them.  It was kind of like that:)  The day was beautiful with lots of snow and the sun shining down.  Only one problem some forgot their coats and none wore snow pants.  This lead to tears very quickly and a selection of a tree that was the fastest I have ever seen.

In the end the tree is up, a few gifts wrapped, and we are getting close to ready.  Brian and I laugh now when we think about this day. It isn't the first tree hunt with tears and it won't be the last I am sure.  The truth is life doesn't work like Hallmark but we can keep still hoping it will one day!

A weekend is ahead of us full of baking, a tap performance, and hopefully a Christmas card will get written.  Wishing you all a beautiful weekend!
