Merry Christmas!

I thought I'd take a minute to wish all of my friends a very Merry Christmas!

The Plaza in Kansas City

We've been busy here, with final Christmas preparations and enjoying having our oldest son Nate home for two whole weeks!

Tom was so sweet to take me to the Plaza on a warm night last week to take photos!

My Mother's heart is so happy when I can gather all of my little "chickies" home again.  (Our oldest daughter Micah and her husband Joshua will be in later this week!)


We've had piano recitals....


backyard football games,


Jasper our Welsh Corgi had to be in the middle of everything!  So cute!

I love watching our farm animals...  our poor guineas are in a constant state of panic, it seems.  They are so funny!


My sweet giant bunny, Miss Bennett (I thought we'd use names from Pride and Prejudice for the rabbits!) ... she loves to be petted.


and our duck, Jemima.  Isn't she adorable?


I think the little curl on her tail is the cutest thing!


I love our little farm... so happy with simple living.

Praying that you have a meaningful, peaceful, simple and blessed Christmas this year.  From our family to yours, Merry Christmas!

And finally, I thought you'd enjoy this adorable video of children retelling the Christmas Story!

A very merry Christmas to you!


  1. Wow, thanks! Love it all. Those Kansas pics are awesome. I love how the lights outline the buildings.
    Cute animals. Miss Bennet--now why is that? She doesn't look too happy!

    Have a great Merry Christmas, and rest in the peace of Jesus. That's what it's about. Enjoy your family and God bless.

  2. HI Susan,

  3. Lovely! Thanks for sharing. Have a blessed and relaxing Christmas.
    Love, Stephanie

  4. How WONDERFUL that you have been able to have all your *chickies* home with you over Christmas! Thank you for your sweet friendship...I am thankful for you!

    May the LORD richly bless you all in the coming year.

    Much Love,
