Merry Christmas Houstons!

Snow! on Christmas! yea! 
Merry Christmas Houstons!

Mark 11:22-23
"And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.
For verily I say unto you, whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou moved, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith."

the first snow of the year!

its snowing! i love the first snow of the year! its makes Christmas that much closer!
 it's not just because it reminds me of sweet time with family, or yummy food... or giving gifts... it because it reminds me that my savior is awesome... and that this is the time we set aside to rejoice in his birth, and the reason he was born. i never want to lose focus on that...
i hear all the time on the radio, people saying that not hiving (fill in the blank) makes Christmas unhappy... or that people shouldn't have to go without on Christmas... well... i think of the fact that Christ was born without anything! i think i would be OK without anything.... as long as i didn't forget what he did for me! im not trying to put a damper on "Christmas spirit". i love to give gifts and such on Christmas!  i just had the thought "what IS real Christmas spirit?" why do i love Christmas?

i cant wait to share Christmas with my family! sitting down, and reading of Christ's wonderful birth! and enjoying sweet fellowship... (this year we are not opening gifts on Christmas day... we are doing it the day before. )

Newborn photos.

home school ideas!

James is learning his ABC's right now, and while i don't want to push him, id like to foster this early desire to learn... 
i was wondering what you homeschooling moms have as far as info on preschool, and later grades.
tips, tricks, and ideas! :)

James loves the computer!  but i cant just use fisher prices website... he gets bored... 

i need ideas...
 what and why you use the curriculum you do... where you can get it... are there samples? 
computer options?
i also wouldn't mind knowing what the rules are for homeschooling... unfortunately we missed that session at the conference... 

i am not starting him in school yet! :) i just want to be well prepared...
