Christmas Bliss...

Did you know it takes 10 years to grow a Christmas tree?  Neither did we, but we found that out at the Christmas farm where we chopped down our tree. Yes, we CHOPPED our own tree down. It was really fun.  We rode on a wagon led by two beautiful horses, through acres of trees. Some were small and we were told they were only 2 years old....it was interesting. We picked our tree because it had little pine cones on it, which mostly fell off...but we thought it was charming.  We drank hot cocoa, then went home and decorated it.  It was precious, that is all I can say. Simply precious.  God is so wonderful and he has blessed us so much.  We would like to wish you all a very, Merry Christmas.  Much love <3




























(6) For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. (7) Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will do this.
Isaiah 9:6-7

We used to love cutting down the Christmas tree. We had this specific farm we went to every year, the people knew our names, we would play with their dogs.... They shut dwon 3 or 4 years ago and we haven't had a good tree since! :) I love the spongebob ornaments. Your girls are just beautiful.
