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!
