My Head is Spinning

Egg Decorating

Special Snack for Emma's Class

Preparations for Sunday

These are among the many things I have on my plate for this week. We are having both sides of our family over for lunch this Sunday. Yes, it is a bit overwhelming, but important to have everyone together whenever I can manage it. I do it mainly for our girls. They LOVE having both sides of the family together and I can see it is very special to them.
We will also be giving Emma and Lilly each a brand new Bible before we head off to church. They have outgrown their current Bibles and I think they will be very excited to receive their new gifts.
Have a WONDERFUL Easter!

Around our Home

It's January and it's cold...but, I don't mind one bit. Winter is actually my favorite season - it's so cozy and romantic and it reminds me of our wedding day. Our wedding was held on a cold, December evening with the glow of candles surrounding us - I'll never forget it. Now that the holidays are behind us, it can be difficult to keep that warm, fuzzy feeling for the remainder of the season. Here are some things around our home that keeps us cozy and cheery.

Hot Chocolate with Heart-Shaped Marshmallows
When I first saw these marshmallows in the seasonal aisle of Wal-Mart, I literally squealed out loud. Ask John...he was there...and I'm sure he was a bit embarrassed by all my commotion.

Board Games
Sometimes, we play as a family. Sometimes, just the girls play. And sometimes, just the stuffed animals play. ;)

To me, the soft glow of a lamp gives such a "homey" feel. I love, love, LOVE lamps.

Both girls are taking dance lessons and they frequently "practice" around the house. It really is a joy to watch them. Now, having to pick up dance shoes everywhere, all the time does NOT give me as much joy.

So good to be back. Lots of love to all my blogging buddies!
