So in response to the previous post, this blog will be under construction until the 1st of the year. It's going to take me a while to design the new one. In other news, we are ready for Christmas! All of the gifts have been bought and are wrapped under the tree. I can hardly wait for Christmas! I feel like a little kid all over again. I am so excited for Kate's first Christmas even though she won't have a clue as to what's going on. She is our most precious gift. She's all we prayed and wished for. I don't need anything else. Chris and I are gift givers. We love buying things for others and bringing joy to those we love. I wish we had more to give. That thought brings my mind to Christ. He sent His precious Son to die for me. His greatest gift, He gave up for you. and. me. I am super excited about His gift and so thankful. I will never have anything worthy enough to pay Him back. I am so thankful that there is no need to even try to. I can only imagine the joy it brings Christ when one of His children come back to Him and accept His gift, His Son. Our prayer is that many will come to know Him this Christmas season and accept the most precious gift ever. This Christmas is going to be an extra special one at our house....much to be thankful for!

I dusted her off and went to town with chalk paint. Then I got rid of the old dark rug and started changing out our throw pillows. Then it was onto the fireplace. Before Chris took out part of the wood floor to extend the floor of the tiny fireplace. We also cleaned out the fireplace and sprayed it with cream paint that can withstand 1,200 degree temperatures. And then we sucked out the old volcano rock and put in this fire glass fr
