Merry Christmas to All...


My Little Men are six hours away... That's my driving time, not theirs (you know the Little Men are not FOR driving straight on like a bat-out-of-Hades as their Noni is).  They are on the second leg of a long journey home for Christmas.  I say "home" because when his Daddy asked Little Man if would he rather live in Texas or Virginia, he said, "What's Virginia?"  That counts as considering Texas as home, doesn't it?

I hope he always feels like this is home, too.


I have a few more hours of flurried busy-ness before I swoop him out of his car seat and become all his and his brother's for as much time as I can claim.


That said... if I don't make it back until they pull out of the drive... I'm sending my heartfelt wishes for each of you to enjoy a season of love and hope and promise...


Moments of quiet... to appreciate the gifts... not the gifts under the tree, but the ones God has given us... The gift of His Son... the gift of redemption... the gift of comfort in the Holy Spirit... of His Love...


Moments of laughter and joy and friends and family...


Moments of... Thank You, Father...

blessings and hugs and Merry Christmas to all....

Everything looks beautiful!
I wish you a safe journey, and know the particular anticipation you're feeling. There's just nothing like those little arms and chubby cheeks and a voice shouting 'It's Nana!'
Have fun!

You have such a gift for making a place beautiful, comfortable and cozy. Coming to your home would feel like being enveloped in love...which is just how your family will feel when they step through the door. Have a lovely Christmas Tanna with those sweet ones!

So cozy, Tanna! Love your home and Christmas decor. Very natural - and your sentiments on what we have been gifted with by our Lord.

Have a wonderful Christmas season with your "littles" and soak up all the hugs and kisses you can!

(and yes, I think that answer qualifies for Texas... :)

Your home is so beautiful and inviting! I know you will have a wonderful time with your "little men". I wish so much that ours were coming from CA to NC for Christmas but they are starting their traditions there and they were just home. Thanks for you visit to my blog and your sweet comments. I wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season.
Love,
Marie

Everything looks all warm and Christmasy to me. It's no wonder that he feels that home is where the Noni is. I felt that way until my grandmother died. True story.
