I absolutely love that quote. So, so true. Which is why our christmas decor is minimal, our tree has no ornaments and my gifts to David are "wrapped" in freebie Macy's boxes.

Enjoy the reason for the season and enjoy your family! Forget about everything else!

your tree looks....well fun! Can't wait to see it decorated (did you decorate it?) Twin Oaks play sounded so fun, wish we could have been there!

I like the tree! Jarrett is playing Charlie Brown in our church's play this year so he would have FULL appreciation for it!

Twin Oaks program looked really neat! Did anyone happen to video it? Loved the blog =)

the thing I love about you is...everything that has eternal value is DONE!!! I hope you know this christmas season how much your friendship means to me...I'm not even sure how it all came to be...but one thing I know is God brought us together even when we didn't understand His plan...isn't He Awesome!!! Thank you Heavenly Father for all my friends and family.

I know i already commented but I just have to echo what Regina said. Our Heavenly Father loves us so much, He uses our friends and family as a glimpse of His love for us. This Christmas season is especially special for me, because of my family,and friends. It just seems like our fervency for the Word, Godly fellowship when we're together, and thankfulness for what we have has multiplied... To God be all the Glory this season! love to all
