Only 7 shopping days left until Christmas! Does that seem really crazy to anyone else?!? Although the nice bit of snow we got over the weekend does confirm that it is officially winter, and the holidays are here… I think I’ve officially got 1 gift to buy!… Not bad, for a typically last minute shopper!
Do you ever have find yourself thinking, “only by the grace of God”?… Over the last couple of days, I’ve found myself saying this quite often. At times when you can’t quite figure out why certain things are happening or what the meaning is behind it, to only realize it’s all by God’s grace.. He has a plan and things happen to steer us down the path to His calling.. My faith has been tested over the last couple of days, and I’m proud to say that I have pushed forward and trusted in Him. It’s very clear to me what has happened, and again, it’s “only by the grace of God”… Stronger, more dedicated, grateful, loved.. those are just a few of the many emotions flooding me right now..
Horrible blogger… I know, I know… Someone recently mentioned to me, “You haven’t blogged in a MONTH”… I laughed and replied, “Oh come on, it hasn’t been THAT long”… Um.. sure enough.. it’s been OVER a month now! Oye! Sorry readers… Keep w/ me though, the new year brings a better blogger out of us all! And for certain ones out there, stepping into the blogging world all together! haha..
Updates on us… Erik is currently fighting a cold. I think actually the very first time he’s been sick since we’ve been together! Um… I think I understand the reason that women go through pregnancy and child birth.. haha.. Just kidding honey.. You’ll feel better soon!..
Kaylor attempted to do her best at snow angels yesterday.. I was later informed that I’d have to help her make a snowman (OR girl, as she tells me) so we’ll see how that goes.. Or rather how long this snow lasts before it’s all melted!
Stumbled upon a couple of pictures recently from my brother’s HS graduation.. thought I’d share.. Also a couple of pics from Kaylor’s winter program in her “pretty blue dress”..
And what other fun things have I been keeping busy working on? Why a holiday card for my mom (and Brock).. hehe.. I especially designed the card for her, considering she loves greens & well, her dog, Brock, too! We even did photos of him in the studio.. he did a super job! Purina, if you’re looking for reps… I’ve got his contact info!
