This Week ...


At the shopping centre this morning, these two baby fawns.  So cute!


Our holiday food order arrived.


Mathew is home for two weeks!  So nice to have him home.


Loving pretty decorations on our family meal table.  This ornament is made from mismatched cup and saucer sets from my Grandmother from England.  Rather than let them sit unused in our sideboard, I took a tip from Pinterest and glued them together in this way to make a cup cake stand.  This way I get to enjoy them much more often and let their story be told.


Our tree this year.  I leave the curtain open at night and turn the lights on.  Gives those coming in late from work a nice welcome home feeling.

 In the fear of the Lord is strong confidence: and his children shall have a place of refuge.
Proverbs 14:26

The 12 Voices of Christmas Family Devotional


Taking turns reading 12 Voices of Christmas.  Each alternate evening between 2nd and 24th December we read after dinner from this free downloadable resource.

So far we have read the voice of disbelief - the story of Zachariah, the voice of wonder - the story of Mary, the voice of  reason - the story of Joseph.


The stories combine scripture and references along with biblically sound interpretation of the times and culture surrounding each biblical character.  It's a unique eye into the person's heart and faith during this time of the coming of the Christ's birth.

Gingerbread House Tradition


Christmas music, a Gingerbread House Kit and many happy hands on a bright, early Summer Sunday afternoon.  One of our traditions.


Charlotte was home this year to help!  Jedidiah made the pattern on the roof his very own.


White sugar covers a thousand mistakes with the tubed icing and looks incredibly realistic as snow on the ground.


And icing sugar sifted over the roof adds another realistic dimension.  Don't you love Charlotte's icicles hanging off the roof edge!


Love it!
