Decorating :)!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a lovely day with family and we sure do have much to be thankful for this year!!! Unfortunately I took no pictures that day, but I have lots of pictures to share below. You will see that we are totally in the Christmas spirit in our home :)!

These past couple weeks have been so much fun! We are making lots of wonderful memories in our new home as we get ready for Christmas! I have never had such a blast decorating! We have Christmas music playing pretty continually around here and the lights from the trees are making things so cozy.

Our Great Room

and Micah & Caleb's

We've had several fires! We are LOVING our fireplace :)!

One of my favorite ornaments!

Our nativity set :). What it's all about... Jesus :)!!!!

Christmas Pictures :)

They each have a tree in their rooms. Jacob with his :).

Abbey with hers :).

Micah (above) with theirs and Caleb (below) :). They share a room... and a tree :)

It sure is hard to believe that Christmas really is right around the corner and even more hard to believe that we are a little over 1 month away from Abbey being completely done with her treatment! There really are no words to express how it feels being this close to being done. I remember the night she was diagnosed, thinking that this journey would be forever and here we are at that end. I don't think there has ever been a time in my life where I've been this happy, content and thankful and it's only by God's grace that I can say that after coming off the hardest time of our lives. God is good and oh how thankful I am that I know Him! Praying for blessings for all of you this Christmas Season :)!

Christmas Cards

We have been very much enjoying these last couple weeks as the holidays are quickly approaching! It sure is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is in a couple days and that Christmas is right around the corner. We have yet to start shopping, but our decorating is in full swing and I just started working on our annual Christmas cards.

This year I have chosen to make our cards through Shutterfly. It's amazing how easy it is to make your own card through their website and there are so many styles to choose from that you really are able to get exactly what you want. Whether you want to share just one family picture for your card, or if you'd like to have several pictures on your card, you can be sure that they will have exactly what you're looking for. And Shutterfly not only has Christmas cards, but they also have Christmas invitations if you plan on doing a party this year and even gift tags to put on your presents. If you've never checked out their website, I encourage you to take a look and see all that they have to offer :).

And for those of you who have a blog, go HERE and find out how you too can get 50 free cards this year!
