Gingerbread Houses

I just love this time of year, it truly is such a special time. This week hubby has been on vacation so we have enjoyed the time together as a family. We took the children yesterday to the Grove Park Inn to see all the beautiful Gingerbread houses. To say how amazing they were doesn't seem to cover it. They really are tremendous! We all had a great time, and got to enjoy the atmosphere of being there. I pray you all are having a wonderful time enjoying spending time with family and friends.

Trying to get everyone to look at the camera is nearly impossible right now.

Missing in Action

Yes I have been missing in action. *Life* has consumed me for the past several months. In addition to that I have been without my laptop for nearly 3 months. My power cord finally gave up and died and I just haven't ordered a new one. I always seem to find something more important to spend that money on. My husband on the other hand just says order it. I will, I will after the Christmas season, and maybe after tax time! We have spent the last few months enjoying life and each other. In September our family took a much needed break away. Daddy had spent so much extra time making up for the money that was stole from us. We were able to sneak away for 3 nights, and had a great time in the Lord with each other. Then my hubby and I had already paid for our couples retreat at our church a few months before that, and we took time away for the two of us! It was a blessing to renew our marriage and have just time for the two of us. October was very busy as we prepared for our annual Camp meeting at our church. It was such a blessing to have all the many preachers and their families with us for a few days. Of course the month of November is always busy preparing for the holidays that always seem to approach much more quickly than we anticipate. We enjoyed our Thanksgiving with family and had a tremendous time in the Lord! I am gonna post just a few pics of the past few months and Lord willing I will be able to post more later. I just hate being on this desktop computer tho...its SOOOO old and slow. Even with the fastest internet its slow. Praying everyone will have a wonderful time this month just enjoying the season. Because it truly is not about presents and gifts, its about our Jesus! Pray for us as my hubby and I are doing the Christmas program at our church this year and we just want everyone to see Jesus!
