December Ending

December Sunset
The ending of this year brings the promise of a new year, a new start, a new day to find peace and happiness. This year, I want to be a better person. I have been quite off track and I am going to try much harder to be the woman I should. My God has given me directions, and I can follow them.
I'm not sure how best to go about making changes in my life, but I want to begin with my home. My project in 2012 is to make my home a haven. To bring beauty in and move clutter and distraction out.
Happy New Year to all of you!

Christmas Break

I have been off the grid since Thanksgiving! I was a welcome break, I was also ill with a severe cold that has taken me 4 weeks to get over. Nonetheless, we had a WONDERFUL Christmas!

We visited Speedway in Lights at Bristol Motor Speedway!

Toasted marshmallows in the Santa Village!

Rebekah put all the ornaments on the same two branches of the tree!

To begin the holidays, our nephew came to live with us for at least a month, maybe permanently. He has been a blessing and is a cheerful, boisterous 13(almost 14, his birthday is on New Year's Day) year old! There are issues, but we are addressing them and he is doing well!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and ia looking forward to a new start in the New Year!
