Christmas 2011

Greetings as December comes to an end. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I used a hot glue gun for the first time this year. Boy did I have a lot of fun. I made these wreaths. I also wrapped some packages with burlap for a rustic look. (below)

Christmas goes by so quickly doesn't it after all the preparations? We cherish the time spent with our loved ones, the memories, the love shared, the precious photos. I wanted to share with you a glimpse into our lives. We started out at 18 years old…married…raised two great kids…and now look at all the joy we share. Hold those dear to you close and keep the home fires burning.

Here are some pics from our Christmas. We welcomed baby August into the family. Everyone had a great time!

As we get ready for 2012, let’s take time to think about all our blessings and to thank God for watching over us and meeting our needs. Many have very little and we all have more than enough.

May 2012 be filled with many good things for you and yours…Jennifer aka Gigi
