Here Come The Demons

Christmas is once again over. The build-up was as amazing as ever. On Thanksgiving I put up the tree and we had our traditional Thanksgiving feast, my husband and I and our furkids. On December 1, brimming with excitement as it was both my sister's birthday AND the day she and I put up her tree, I went to my sister's home for the coming celebrations of the day.

When my sister and I are together we are like little kids, both completely oblivious to what is going on around and just focused on each other and our own world. We "ooh and ah" at lights, decorations, carols, and everything at Christmastime. It was an amazing day. Later in the afternoon on December 1 my dear brother-in-law, who is really more of a brother than anything, took us to dinner, which is a custom when I go to their house to help decorate. Then back again to their house for more sister fun. When we were finished we stood back and looked very proudly at the beautiful tree we created and congratulated...

A Message From Max

Posted 12-21-2012 at 05:46 AM by caninemom3

[B][I]This is a message from Rev. Max Lucado, a man I very much respect and find inspiration from. I thought it was important to share his thoughts as we approach Christmas this year and include this as part of my blog xo[/I][/B]

Some of the saddest words on earth are: “We don’t have room for you.”
Jesus knew the sound of those words. He was still in Mary’s womb when the innkeeper said, “We don’t have room for you.” (Luke 2:7)
And when he was hung on the cross, wasn’t the message one of utter rejection? “We don’t have room for you in our world.”
Even today Jesus is given the same treatment. He goes from heart to heart, asking if he might enter. Every so often, he’s welcomed. Someone throws open the door of his or her heart and invites him to stay. And to that person Jesus gives this great promise: [I]“In my Father’s house are many rooms.” (John 14:2)[/I]
What a delightful promise he makes us! We make room for him in our hearts….And he makes room for...

Merry Christmas Mom And Dad

Hi mom and dad. It's just me, your youngest. It is Christmas Season once again on Earth, but I am sure you know that. Of course with all the joy of Christmas Season comes a longing to see you both again. You both taught me about Christmas when I was just a baby. Mom, you taught me about Jesus and his birth and how to make cookies and how to decorate them but most important of all you taught me how to have FUN. You taught me that Christmas has many sides among them decorating, singing carols and being with family in addition to the sacred side of Christmas. You taught me how Jesus was born and how He loves us no matter what. When I asked you in my childish way one Autumn if God sewed the leaves back on the trees with a needle and thread you very patiently answered, "Yes, that is what God does." You read to me for hours on end and showed me pictures of such wondrous things in life as I sat on your lap. You gave me the love of reading too.

Dad you taught me how to...

My Dogs Take on Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Posted 12-18-2012 at 08:06 AM by lauriebear

Snickers take on…
WALKING PLAYING IN A WINTER WONDERLAND
by Dick Smith and Felix Bernard 1934
Edited by Snickers the dog 2012

All doggies are howling, are you listening,
Running through the snow, see our tails a wagging,

Oh what delight,
Happy dogs are quite a sight,
Running through a winter wonderland…

Gone away are the kitties,
They don’t like the snow,
What a pity,
How much fun they miss,
Playing catch in a winter wonderland

In the meadow I’ll run all around,
Then chase the snowflakes down
Pop will say.. Crazy dog, you are silly
I'll say: Not me pop,
I’m just lov’in this winter wonderland

Later on, after dinner,
The kitties & I will consider,
Playing with our toys or the tinsel
As the snow falls on our winter wonderland

In the meadow mom & dad can make some snowballs,...

Babies

Posted 12-16-2012 at 03:50 AM by Jeff Westover (A Merry Blog)

These have been thought provoking days. Since hearing the news of the shootings in Connecticut I have been so very unsettled and troubled in spirit. How can you not be?

We knew this would be a big Christmas weekend for us. We spent the day on Friday with my Mother, who has been in poor health for some time. Mom just wanted a little Christmas spirit in her home and wanted the air filled with the aroma of baking. So we set aside the afternoon to sit with her, me with the old photo albums while my wife set out to bake cranberry/orange bread and chocolate crinkle cookies.

My daughter Maggie turns 15 this weekend as well and it was her desire to spend the night with her big sister, who still lives in Salt Lake City. So we took her down there on our way to see my Mother.

We met up with these two precious daughters later tonight to enjoy one of the great traditions of Christmas we have loved since moving here...
