Favorite Things

I thought I would share a few of my favorite things that I am using this year to help me study God's word.

The first being the Scripture Reading Plan I am using provided by the Journey church. I like it because if you get behind it is easy to get caught up. :)

The second is what I am using to help me memorize verses. I have always wanted to memorize Philippians and shared that desire with my husband. He directed me to this site which has a VERY helpful guide to memorizing Philippians!

Welcome to Our Home

Welcome to our home...
View from the door.
We don't have a fireplace so our stockings are hanging on a wondeful coat rack that my uncle made for me out of old glass doorknobs I has collected. It is beautiful. It is a piece of artwork all on its own! The cream stockings are our's and the red ones are my parents who will be with us for Christmas this year! We can't wait!!
Our entry table Our dinner table.
Our Christmas Card holder! I love it!
Odd and end decorations on the top of our bakers rack. EG's little table.
Her "table runner" and mini tree. She loves the "tuptake's"!! Our bookshelves are topped with garland.
Of course EG's pictures with Santa are out. We have to take her this year so we can put that one out! I love these pictures!
The ram from Finland that mom brought us...there is some tradition but I cannot remember.
The advent tree from Finland...before they came popular over here! :) They are really popular over there. And a hurricane with moss and glass balls.
The 'mini tree' on top of our entertainment center.
Our nativity scene...I can't wait to get the rest of the pieces!!! Our Christmas tree. It is a hodge podge tree filled with ornaments we have selected and been given over the years. My family had a tradition of getting one ornament, that we chose, each year. I have continued that with my family. EG's ornaments this year (I couldn't choose just one) were a fish because she likes the Backyardigans episode with the "fishies" and a shoe because she LOVES shoes. I thought they were very fitting ornaments for this stage in her life!
EG's bathroom...we even gave the frog humidifier antlers! :) A close up of the wreath I made for $4. I love it! I think it is whimsical! The mini tree in EG's bathroom that we decorated with bows! EG's tree in her bedroom that SHE decorated with wired heart garland. She is so proud of her tree and loves to look at it!
EG's mini stocking in her room. The ram and bell mobile that mom brought from Finland. So original!
Merry Christmas!!!
