52:52 Twinkling Lights

Typically over here the tree is dropping needles so bad  it gets carried out the day after Christmas. But we got our tree up so late that we are not to that point, yet. We just might have to enjoy these twinkling lights for a few more days.

I can not believe this is our last week of the year. Good bye 2013, it's been a busy one.
Wishing you all a Happy & Blessed New Year!!

51:52 Cold

Our world is covered with a blanket of white.
The weather has warmed up a wee bit. 
We are currently out of the negatives, 
but still hanging out in the single digests.
I'm missing hearing the chatter of the birds.
The kids are now officially on Winter Break. 
We are starting to make a list of stuff to do.
Sledding, snowshoeing, spending some time at the cabin, sleeping in, 
making snowmen, baking....

Head Anita's way next.

Have a Merry Merry Christmas.

50:52 Tradition

Week 50 already?  Where did this year go?
Christmas is just around the corner. This week's challenge got me thinking about what kind of traditions we have in our house.

2010 was Nolan's first year to help go find and cut down our tree. 
He has helped every year since then. 
We received this felt Advent calendar as a gift. 
Fun to watch the picture get more detailed every day.
Jack the Elf has returned again making this his 3rd year with us. 
Christmas Eve is spent with Ryan's family. Every year there is a pinata to break open.
And of course Santa always pays a visit too. 
On Christmas day we have started reading the story of Christmas from the bible. 
What Christmas time traditions do you have?

49:52 Intangible

When I think of intangible my first thought is Heaven, then God.
The sunrise over the mountains earlier this week was breath taking.  
God's beauty is all around us. 
Each day I think I am lucky enough to visually see it.

We are switching up the hop again this month. Head over Anita's way next.

Have a safe weekend!
