Rock Story Fun!

About the Book: By arranging a few rocks together an entire story can be told. A Savior Is Born, Rocks Tell the Story of Christmas, created by Patti Rokus, is an unforgettable picture book that uses majestic rock art and simple yet powerful text to inspire wonder and awe as the miracle of Christmas unfolds across the pages. Readers will be absorbed in the nature-filled artwork that shows the birth of Jesus and the celebration of the very first Christmas in a powerful and unique way. The cover of this book sparkles and shines with foil, embossing, and spot gloss.

My Review: Christmas season has come and past but this review is still timely!   I can show you why you should get this book so that your kids can get as creative as mine!   I got this book back in December and we loved looking at the rock creation pictures retelling the Christmas story.   I mean look at all the details you can find in the picture above with using only rocks!!   Rocks seem to be getting a lot of attention the la…

Merry Christmas 2019

Oh Christmas Lights, Oh Christmas lights, I love your little sparkle!  
We were so blessed that it wasn't too cold here in Iowa for this quick photo shoot.   I had scheduled family photos 3 times and cancelled 3 times for various reason so we grabbed some friends and went and took some great pictures!  
2019 was up and down and all around!   My kids are much more independent and we took a nice long family vacation in Florida and I will treasure those memories forever!  
Work has been more challenging so it has been exhausting physically and mentally which has really caused me to forget about self care... I gained some weight!  NO MORE! 
2020 will be about focus!   


Good Bye 2019!!
HELLO 2020

One Word to Describe your Family in 2019

My son was given an art assignment to pick one word to describe his families 2019 year.   He chose "GOD."   This makes me super happy!   It truly is what my family is doing each day!  Making God the center of our family is vital and this was a pat on the back for me knowing we are doing it!  
How would you describe your 2019 year?

Happy Birthday Jesus Pancakes

Image
The tradition continues with pancakes to celebrate Jesus birth!   
This year I went with a sheet cake for pancakes!   This allowed us three different types of pancakes.   1. Peanut butter and banana 2. Blueberry and cream cheese 3. Chocolate Chip
I think Blueberry was the overall winner!   My bananas needed to be a bit sweeter so that type didn't have much flavor.  

Oh Candle Light Service and Christmas Jammies!

There is something about Christmas pajamas and cuddles that I LOVE!   I know Christmas pajamas can get pricey so I was excited in my late shopping time to find these two at Gordmans the Saturday before Christmas!   They were also a great price!  

Do you go to a Candle Light Service?   We have one each Christmas Eve and singing with the candle light sure makes it feel more like Christmas!  

You make my life MERRY and BRIGHT
