Taking a moment amidst cooking Christmas dinner to wish you all a wonderful Christmas! I pray you are surrounding by loved ones, peace, joy, and happiness…and of course lots of good food to eat. Christmas is extra special this year because my soldier is home and we are together! Last night we sat drinking hot chocolate with lots of marshmellows and reading the Christmas story! The beautiful story of how Jesus came to earth, born as a babe as we are, knew sorrows and joy as we know it, and then to perform the work He ultimately came to do….to die on the cross of Calvary for the sins of the whole world….granting us forgiveness and mervy for that which we did not deserve. He gave the biggest gift of all….Himself…that we might have eternal life!
CHristmas is also a time I celebrate and thank the Lord for the closeness of family, friends, and all the good I have been blessed with.
We are having friends over to share our evening with so I wanted to share my table scape!!! :) It’s a french-country Christmas table this year …oh and mixed with a bit of fine dining…dessert spoons and salad forks ect……haha :)
The saucers are “bread plates”…I make homemade rolls on christmas! :)
Touches of Christmas here and there :)
Our homemade ornaments this year! We put our new photo printer to use and printed off some family pics old and new. We glued them to cardstock and hung them with twine! We couldn’t forget Ziggy of course!
As you can tell we’re huge fans of homemade stuff so we made our own christmas sign….the pic doesn’t do it justice…Haleigh did a beautiful job….We used CTMH alphabet stamp set, card stock and distressed it with Bamboo, cranberry and chocolate stamp pad, hung with ornament hangers and hung on the twine! :)
Here’s some pics of my kitchen…..I was baking up a storm for the party so it’s not neat! I tend to use EVERY counter space I have when I’m in the kitchen….
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
