Deck the Halls!

Here’s a pic of our house decorated for Christmas last year…the goal today is to get it back up and festive again!

Thank you so much for your prayers and sweet comments/emails yesterday.  Ashby is home resting today while the other three kiddos are at school.  She said she wants to watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas and watch us put up the Christmas stuff.  It was a rough day/night, but your prayers were most definitely felt.  THANK YOU!  I’ll be back tomorrow with my Friday Favorites, in the meantime, I have garland to hang and a girl to take care of!  Love to you all! xo

    Prayers for your strong fighter. I love how she is speaking up for what makes her more comfortable during each procedure. So much is out of her control and I love that she is taking control in the few areas she has a choice. Prayers for your beautiful girl.

    I hope sweet Ashby is feeling better today..such a brave girl! When she is back in action you should take her to see The Grinch! Saw it the other night..while it isn’t the original, it sure is cute! Have a great day!

    Oh Sweet Ashby, I wish I could come and snuggle with you while watching the Grinch and Mama decorate. I’m home on a snow day in northern Indiana, so I’m watching all the Hallmark and putting up one of my trees.
