One Sunday in October we ventured out to a ranch in the Nebraska Sandhills. Matt & Grace were just 2 of 13 people that were baptized in the freezing water. What a wonderful day! They are the third generation (on Dave's side) to be baptized in this river. What an amazing heritage! I am so proud of them, they took the initiative, they understood what statement they were making on this day and they strive daily to live a life that is pleasing to God. I am so blessed to call them my children. Someday it will be Aaron's turn. If I do nothing else in this world I hope that I succeed in being an example to my children of Christ's love and mercy.
This week we also started reading the scripture of Advent. I found them at Focus on theFamily. Last night, we watched The Nativity. We are beginning new Christmas traditions in our household. How about you? Are you doing anything new this year?
As I said, this is my favorite time of the year & I can't really put words to why it is. It is something I feel deep inside of me every year at this time. I am in awe as I remember the greatest Gift and deepest Love that has ever been given. God sent His Son to earth as a babe. This year remember to celebrate the birthday of the King of Kings above all else. Merry Christmas!

this post if you need a reminder of what the kitchen looked like before. Obviously, we are not finished yet. We need to finish trimming out the cabinets and painting.
here to see the before pictures!
The Inspired Room earlier this week. She is hosting a Fall Nesting Party this week, I am hoping for a chance to win one of the shopping sprees to HomeGoods. I am sure I could find something for my living room walls and even a throw pillow or two for my new sectional!! I am also trying to find something for the windows. I promise to post more pictures when the room is complete. Thanks for stopping by and if you are wondering what the before looked like please click here.

**I just read this post again. I made it sound like Matt needed help with reading. What I meant to say was that I don't have to ask him to read, he is choosing to read on his own. I think he has finally discovered the adventures that books can be. Yeah!!
The week before school started the kids and I were in the Kansas City area visiting Gram, Jana and Carter. We also did some school shopping and Gram treated us to a fun time around town. I am still waiting for the pictures, so I can share them with you. Gram? This picture was taken at my cousin's house. She and my uncle put a lot of work into this place and it looks amazing! It has been years since the family has been together, my aunt from ND was also there. We had a great time!
