What a wondeful Christmas weekend! I hope and pray you all enjoyed your family and friends this weekend as much as I did!

I hosted Christmas this year in my tiny, little, home, but we were all together and it was quite cozy! The kids received such wonderful gifts and the hubby and I got so many gift cards to use towards date nights that we can't wait to start using them!

The greatest gift, for me, this year, was time with family and the fact that both sides of my family {mine and hubby's} were under one roof getting along. It was beautiful! More than I could have ever asked for.

My family!

My side of the family. My sister and her husband and their dog, Kona. My Mom and Dad {my dad is holding Little Man and my mom is holding Busy Bee}! My Grandma and Uncle and the hubs and I holding our "other" children, Gracie and Lillie


Now as we start preparing our hearts and minds for the New Year, I wanted to remind you of a few things that you can get involved in. {i know i probably sound like a broken record, but these are great challenges that I don't want you to miss out on!}

I really hope you will consider joining in all or at least one of the above mentioned challenges with me! I like a good challenge to help hold me accountable for things I have set out to do!

I am looking forward to spending this year reading, knitting {which I haven't mentioned at all lately}, sewing, blogging, and getting to know you, my readers, all the better. Thank you for making this so fun for me! I love blogging and look forward to what the new year has in store!

  1. BEAUTIFUL family!! :-D

    I'm doing The Bible in 90 Days Challenge ... and your challenge ... but I think that's about all I'll be doing. Well, maybe Callapidder Days spring reading challenge.

    Glad you and your family had a good Christmas! My mom has met my in-laws ... they're all tolerable of each other, but they don't really like each other. And my in-laws haven't even met my sister or dad yet ... after 8 1/2yrs of marriage!

  2. What a gorgeous family you have! So glad everyone got to spend Christmas together. I know that must have made your whole holiday extra special. I'll be reading the classics with you ladies. I have 10 on my list. It will be a miracle if I make it through them all, but I'm sure going to try!

    Have a wonderful last week of 2010!
