Here are a couple of gatherings outside my back door (the one visitors come to).

I'm trying to keep things simpler this year and I've noticed I'm not alone in that area. A lot of the blogs I visit have the same idea. I think it's time for our family to tone down Christmas and get back to the main reason for the season - Love of Christ and spending time with family.
Just being together and spending time together preparing for Christmas is a blessing in itself and the only gift I need!
Here's a photo of Grandbaby Hailie picking out her very first ornament to hang on the tree and I LOVE the fact that she chose one of my old rusty jingle bells! She's got primitive in her blood :)

Although our Thanksgiving was in October, I’ve enjoyed reading all the posts about everyone being thankful this time of year so I thought I would share a couple of things that I’m thankful for and that make me smile when I look out my window.
A few days ago I was lucky enough to have a special visitor that only shows up a couple of times a year…a gorgeous Pileated Woodpecker. I grabbed my trusty camera and took a few shots of him before he spread his massive wings and flew away. They really are very large birds! Only one picture turned out clear enough. I was thankful for seeing him AND getting a photo.
That photo was take a couple of days ago and this is what it looks like outside today…
I’m thankful for the beauty of winter and my warm cozy home.

Please remember those who sacrificed and continue to sacrifice everything for our freedom. God Bless you all.
