Welcome to Our Home!



I thought it would fun to participate in the Nester's Christmas Tour of Homes! Doesn't it seem as though your home is so much cozier when it's decorated for the holidays!? Mine sure does! I love it! We keep the lights on all the time!

I love all of the pretty ornaments from Hobby Lobby. They are so colorful and fun. My most treasured of all though are the ones that Zachary makes for me!


I just love ornaments they are so much fun! I try to buy a few new ones every year!


I love decorating my mantle! Am thinking I may get some new things for next year!




Zachary's elf Marty Mistletoe arrives every year and kicks of the holiday by decorating his room! This year, he left him an LSU Santa hanging on his wall above his bed. He was soooo excited! He also decorated his dresser with some holiday fun!

I really want to get a Nativity Scene for next christmas. We have a small one in Zachary's room on his dresser. I use to have a big one but in all of our moves, it got broken. I think that will be on my New Year's to do list!! Buy one before next year!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope your holiday is full of wonderful blessings!

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

Hard to believe that the Christmas Holiday is just around the corner! I'm trying really hard this year to teach my 4 year old what the real reason for the season is. As much fun as we have had talking about Santa and his elf, Marty Mistletoe that comes to visit him each year, I want him to know that the true meaning is all about our Saviour Jesus Christ. That he is the real reason for the season! I want him to know the true gift of giving and I so much want his heart to be a heart of love and forgiveness. I love this saying that I came across: "Christmas is forever, not for just one day. For loving, sharing, giving, are not to put away,like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf...the good you do for others is good you do yourself."~Norman Wesley Brooks, "Let Every Day Be Christmas,". I love this time of the year and we have started our decorating and it is so much fun! Thought I would share a few pics! We actually had SNOW this past weekend for the 2nd year in a row!! Seriously, a lot of you are probably wondering what the big deal is.... but for Louisiana that is quite RARE!!








Sending Christmas Blessings your way!

Happy Fall Y'all!

I don't know about you, but I am sooooo excited to finally feel a little fall in the air! Fall is my most FAVORITE time of the year! Pumpkin candles, the smell of leaves burning, fall decorations, the fall fair, just a few of my favorite things! Zachary keeps asking me mommy is it fall yet? He's so cute! I adore that child! He's all excited about going to the pumpkin patch and trick r treat. These are such sweet times and I pray the go by slowly. I LOVE being a mom! God gives us many, many blessings in life, but being a mom surpasses so many things! It can be trying at times, but in Christ alone we make it! That reminds me of one of my favorite songs by Travis Crotrell! Click to listen if you haven't heard it before! It is AWESOME!! How lucky are we than we can know that anything is possible through GOD alone! Even what seems impossible!

ALOHA!


WOW! We just got back from vacation in Hawaii and I think I might finally be catching up! The time difference almost killed us! :) I have to say though, Hawaii is beautiful beyond words. I feel so blessed that we were able to visit such a beautiful place. Zachary had so much fun and was not ready to go home! The plane ride went really well, he did great! Now, it is just getting back into the routine of school and everything else! Thought I would share a few of our photos!





Hope you are all having a wonderful week!!

The end of Summer and Back to School....

Whew! This summer just seemed to fly by! It seems like the older Zach gets the faster the time goes. He is already 4 1/2. It seems like just yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital! We had an awesome summer though! I feel so blessed and am so thankful to be able to stay home with him and spend the time with him that I do. I have an awesome husband who works so hard so that I am able to do that and for him I am very thankful! I haven't been blogging lately because I have been on the run with Zachary. He had a 2 day summer camp this year at our church that he LOVED, there have been swim lessons, play dates.... you get the picture! :) He starts Pre~k next week! We go tonight to meet his new teacher! He is so excited! Here are a few pics of our summer fun! Hope your summer was a fun one!

It has really been a great summer! Hope the upcoming school year is just as great!
