Wonderful Weekend!

This was a fantastic weekend!! I am sad to see it come to an end!! We had so much fun watching Alabama kick Tim Tebow's butt!! It was a great game and yes, I was shocked!! I never imagined we would lead the whole game, but I am happy we did!! It was awesome!! All season long- I rooted for anyone playing Florida- I wanted someone to beat them, but no one could!! I am glad now that they saved Florida for us!! Yay Alabama!!

On a completly different note- our church service was amazing!! Every time I enter the church doors the love of God just wraps around me and He speaks to me through every detail in the service!! It such a special time to me personally!! God is so good! I am so grateful for his mercy and love!! I took a few Christmas pics of the kids in front of the church today too (our church is just as beautiful on the outside as it is on the inside) and they did a great job... I have a few favs to share!! Nana is so sweet- she got the kids some Christmas outfits for just such and occasion!! The pictures look great!!

These are a few of my favorite ornaments/decorations!! I love to get out all of our Christmas decorations, each one holds such precious memories....

*I am trying to grasp this concept of peace in this season of hustle and bustle!! The kids are growing up so fast and I don't want to waste any energy being worn out and stressed during this holiday!! I pray for God's peace to invade my heart so I can enjoy my family and focus on the reason we have this season in the first place!

*We got this angel on our Honeymoon in Asheville, NC!! I can't believe in 6 days it will be 10 years!!

*This ball ornament was given to me by my class the year that Francie was born!! They were such a special group, so sweet!!

*My mom gave me this really beautiful Waterford snowman for Christmas a few years ago!! I collect snowmen and this one is gorgeous!! I love it!!

*These two are my absolute favorites-most valuable snowmen in my collection!! They are also a gift from my mom!! They are Swaravoski crystal and so cute!

*Birki gave me this one in my stocking one year!! It sits on my front table so I see him first when I come home! He is so adorable, I love his red and he has a little sparkle too!

*This one is from Birki too!! He is so delicate looking- he looks hand made and like he would come from White Flowers!! I love his reminder too!

"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid." John 14:27
