MERRY CHRISTMAS!

After about 15 years of not putting up a Christmas tree (shortly after we acquired three kittens and then continued to add), we decided this year to try with a small tree on a small table.  For the most part, it’s working.  Of course, this go-around, all the ornaments are shatterproof! This is not a good picture at all as the ceiling light was on and reflecting in the window so the lights, etc., on the tree don’t really show.  But, you get the gist.  After having the tree up for a few days, I thought we were going to actually pull it off.  We came really close as you can see.  But he didn’t stay there too long and he didn’t try to do anything to the tree (shocker)!

FROM OUR HOUSE TO YOURS,
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR

And for all of those who may not celebrate Christmas,
HAPPY HOLIDAYS

Because of Him

For Easter 2018, watch the short video “Because of Him” and ponder what has happened because of the Savior. (See Mormon.org/video/because-of-him.)

 

Check out this beautiful video from Vocal Point that testifies of Christ’s love and life, “In Christ Alone.”

For all my friends who celebrate, have a blessed Easter. For all others, please enjoy and feel free to check out what it’s all about! ❤

Christmas Wishes

Since this might be my last post for the year, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have gifted me with your likes, your comments, and your friendship. Even though I may never have the opportunity to meet with you in person, you have touched my heart and become a part of my life. I never thought I would see the day that I would have friends all around this big beautiful world. I pray wholeheartedly that each and every one of you will enjoy a blessed holiday season.  I hope to “see” you all next year! I wish you all a very Merry Christmas (for those who celebrate) and a Happy New Year!

CFFC: Letter H – Happy

This week is Letter H – Topic for this week is Happy.

This picture is of me with my first dog, Happy. My Dad gave him to me when I was three years old. He passed away at the age 10 of cancer (I was 13).  He was my best friend — we grew up together! And he made me very happy!

This picture was taken on our wedding day shortly after the ceremony. Pictured in the background is the Mesa, Arizona Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  One of the happiest days of my life!

The simple things make me happy, such as my pets and flowers!

The beauty that God has created to be experienced by us in this world makes me happy.
