Faith is Not Believing that God can, It's Knowing that He Will

Whatever Happened to Merry Christmas?

Happy Holidays!

It's the night before Holiday
It's Holiday joy
It's Holiday carols
It's Holiday cards
It's Holiday lights
It's a Holiday tree
It's Holiday spirit
It's Holiday specials
It's a Holiday dinner
It's the Holiday rush
It's Holiday ornaments
It's Holiday traditions
It's Holiday outfits
It's a Holiday break
It's a Holiday rush
It's Holiday shopping
It's a Holiday gift
It's Holiday magic
It's a Holiday jingle
It's a Holiday recipe
It's a Holiday e-card
It's Holiday time!

I see something wrong with this picture do you?

I Elfed Myself!

I Elfed Lydia, Lily Kate, and myself! This really cracks me up! They have several other dances (square dancing, disco,and the classic) and even this one that sings. But I just really thought that this was hilarious!:D

Christmas Pictures

Here are some pictures that we took for our Christmas card. Which on do you think is best? I was just being silly about the Santa hats. I just couldn't resist adding them when I was editing.:) That one's not going into the Christmas cards!:D Some times the pictures might not appear very sharp so you can click on them to get a bigger picture.

They Announced It!!!

Sherwood announced their new movie today! I kept checking about everyday for the past two weeks for the video clues they posted. Lydia and I checked about four times today waiting for them to announce it. :) They finally have! It's called "Courageous" and it focuses on the role of the father in the family. For some reason I thought that it might be about a girl this time but I was wrong.:) I was a little surprised that the title didn't start with an "f" like all the others but I think that it will be great! I'm very excited! Check out the video of the Kendrick brothers discussing the theme.
I wonder when I will be released?

Here are a Few Photos

It seems a little early to start playing Christmas music. But that's what we're doing! I don't feel like I can listen to Christmas Carols until Thanksgiving. I have great memories of setting the table for thanksgiving and singing "Sleigh Ride" (my favorite Christmas Song) as I set out the plates and silverware.

Lydia has been playing one of our Christmas CD's in the kitchen while she does dishes that has "Deck the Halls" on it. Every time the choir sings the chorus "Fa,la,la,la,la!" Levi joins in even though you can tell he's day dreaming. I guess he does it subconsciously. ;P

I better go on my daily check of all the blogs I look at before I leave for ballet!

One Great Person Said...

"Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence."
~Abigail Adams

I seek after a lot of things. A perfect split, a kitchen that stays clean for at least a few hours, a morning where I actually get out of bed when my alarm goes off, a good test score, muffins that actually rise when baked, and a picture that has the "cool look".

I try to attend to everything with diligence. Whether it be pounding away at the piano every morning and not sounding much better (although I have to say I've seen a little improvement. Although my family might not agree!;), or biting my tongue so I won't say something I will regret.

Speaking of biting my tongue, have you ever wanted to completely bite it off you're so mad? I haven't had one of those instances in a few weeks but I've really tried to work on patience lately. Letting it go is hard for me! Especially when the person doesn't give a wit as to how their actions affect yours! I guess patience is what I need to focus on. It seems whenever I make a point to work on a particular character trait in myself, I feel bombarded with situations that cause me trouble. Temptations seem to fly. But I'm trying to use every problem in a good way. This is what I mean,

"Every experience God gives us, every person he puts in our lives is the perfect position for the future that only He can see."
~Corrie Ten Boom

"Do not look to your hope, but to Christ the source of your hope."
~Charles Spurgeon

My Bad Habits

I have bad habits. I don't really know anyone who doesn't. Would you like me to share what they are?

I leave things lying around. My shoes on the dryer, my towel on the back of a chair, and my ballet bag in the kitchen.

I love sugar

I loose bobby and and hair pins and a lot of other things. :)

I don't always have my wallet in perfect order.

I cut don't cut my finger nails very often.

I am absent minded.

And I play the same songs over and over again. Lydia would probably call that a bad habit. :)

Just thought I'd share! What are your bad habits?
