30 Words Thursday

A trip of a lifetime
New Orleans
Treated to Cirque du Soleil show
Handmade Leather masks 
And a dinner tour in the warehouse where all the Mardi Gras floats were stored 



As I was taking these photos outside I saw this
This little red fox is looking for food



Play along with us. It's fun

30 Words Thursday

 For  unto us a child is born
Unto us a son is given
And his name shall be called Wonderful Counsellor
The mighty God, The Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.



This is just a small part of a nativity set that was given to my parents in 1968.
Every year my mother took it out and carefully arranged on the buffet.
When she pass away in 2011 it was given to me.
I cherish this gift and hope it will be handed down to our kids and that they will cherish it as much as I do 




Play along with us. It's fun

30 Word Thursday


Away in a manger
No crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head
The stars in the sky laid down where he lay
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.



Yes it' a bit too long but I couldn't cut this song short.
The hand painted ornament came from Pier One Imports and I have been getting them for our children and our Sunday School teachers every year.
