Christmas Greeting Video.

    This year I am sad to say I did not get around to mailing out Christmas cards.  There are a few reasons behind that de-lima, number one, I couldn't pick just one picture that I liked over the rest.  Number two, I really wanted to design my own card but am not experienced enough in photoshop, YET.  There is always next year though right.  On the plus side I was able to put together this really neat "Christmas Greeting Video."  So with that all said I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with blessings beyond your dreams.  

P.S. Below is a link to our Christmas Video.

Light at the end of the tunnel.

Merry Christmas EVE!
 Its a warm 57 degrees here in Sunny California.
Our time home has been bitter sweet to say the least.
We came home to a broken heater and spent the night in a 40 degree house using body heat to keep us warm.  Thanks to the best father in law ever, a toasty fireplace now keeps us warm.   Following that blessing some of our best friends surprised us by putting a huge beautiful Christmas tree in our house.  I got it all decorated, sparkly and pretty, only to have it fall over the next day.  Talk about a huge mess with half of my ornaments broken.  It was a sad couple hours of clean up for me but we now have a quant adorable tree.  Following that "Christmas tree comedy," which I only thought happened in the movies, my family and I caught the flu which cooped us up in the house for a couple of days.
But out of every situation comes some sort of blessing, it's amazing how that happens.
  My husband is now home, we are warm, enjoying our tree, and healthy.
I am beyond blessed and thankful.

See there is light at the end of every tunnel. Pretty sure that light is from the Lord.

Did I mention the same friends that blessed us with the tree were blessed with a handsome healthy baby boy!

Merry Christmas EVE!
Be Blessed.

Oh baby..

What is more beautiful than a glowing pregnant woman?

That woman holding her newborn in her arms.

Its one of the many blessings of Motherhood.

The sweet moments of snuggling, loving, and praying over that baby.

It just doesn't get much sweeter than this.

Congratulations Sweet Mama.

Dear Santa.

Dear Santa,

If I had a Christmas list and you were real, this would be it.

 Especially number one and two (Epiphanie camera bag & 35mm lens).

A girl can wish right.

Or maybe just start saving her pennies.

P.S. I have been a very good girl this year.

Love Apryle

Holiday Sweets.

Who doesn't love Candy Canes?  They not only taste yummy but look oh so pretty as decorations too!

We were able to find some organic ones this year without high fructose corn syrup.  Yes they still have sugar but these are a once a year treat right. I LoVe the Holidays.

The kids had no complaints with turning that pretty decor into a tasty treat.  

 Okay here is the truth, the real reason we purchased these candy canes was to make a little peppermint bark.  It is probably one of my favorite holidays sweets.  It turned out delicious and was super easy to make.  I only used two ingredients; ghirardelli white chocolate and these candy canes. Whats your favorite Christmas goddie?

A sweet December day.

Today is Thursday December 1, 2011.  The temperature was quite brisk and the snow fell most of the day.  My little treasures and I enjoyed most our day inside together and ended the afternoon with Daddy.  Boots, hats, and gloves were layered on as we made our way out into the weather and headed for the church.  As we approached the giant church nestled at the base of those beautiful mountains, I couldn't help but have a happy heart.

The fog rested just below the mountain top and the snow decided to let up for a bit.
This place is gorgeous.

 Tonight is Thursday which means the hubby leads a little worship in the World Prayer Center. This is a facility that the church has open 24 hours a day and there is almost always someone praying and worshiping in there.

Thank you Lord for this amazing day with my family and your beauty that surrounds us! 
Your glory shines everywhere and I am so grateful for your love.

 Blessed beyond words to have this man as my husband and father of our children.

                               Love Apryle
