and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."
Thank you Lord for the greatest gift ever given, your only son. Sent to die on a cross so that I may be forgiven and have eternal life with You. There is no greater love and no greater gift.
Enjoy your Christmas today- may it be merry and bright!

Oh my gosh, I can't wait until April! This trailer made me laugh out loud- how funny is it that babies are the same all over the world? :) I love the part at the end where the goat is drinking out of the kid's bath and he doesn't even flinch. Gotta love little ones. This is certainly a movie I'm going to see.

2. We had a bear incident. Well, not really an "incident" just the ol' neighbors calling to say, "By the way, there is a huge bear walking down Hobbs Wall (the dirt road by our home) just in case your animals are still out." (i.e. they may get eaten if they are)
3. I got some last minute Christmas shopping done.
4. Mason smiled for the first time!
5. Gavin set a pie on fire (yes, really... and that's a long story- we won't go there right now)
6. I got some Christmas sewing accomplished- yahoo!
7. My husband made a fantastic dinner.
And then there is, of course, all the regular stuff that goes into a 24 hour period.
I'm so glad that Christmas is almost here. :)

Third, leaf blowers. Layton loves any and all power equipment. How could he not? He's a little boy and daddy has a lot of it. He was helping in the yard blowing the maple leaves into a pile on a "yardwork Sunday afternoon."And lastly, even though it wasn't in the title post, a little gift that my SIL gave to me for my birthday that is now in bloom. It's so nice to have some fragrant blooming flowers in the home while everything outside is frozen!

And as usual, to win, all you have to do is leave a comment. I'm not going to force you to "follow" my blog just to have an entry (I've always found that silly) and you don't have to blog about it to get an entry (although if you wanted to, that would be nice) and you don't have to share some story or tradition or anything like that (unless you want to) - you just have to leave a comment like, "Oh, I love this fabric, I'd love to win!" not "Pick ME! I'm the best!" and PLEASE leave an email or something for me to contact you because I'm not into tracking down folks to give them something.
Contest will close this Friday Dec 11th at midnight. The winner will be chosen using random.org. The Layer Cake will be shipped to the winner via USPS Priority Mail the following Monday.
Good luck to you all!

I'm lame. Somehow I missed it so I didn't get to officially participate. I did get to enter a bunch of great giveaways though. If you'd like to also then you can click here. But missing out on doing a giveaway makes me a little sad so I'll be hosting one here next week! Follow my blog or just check back in next week to see what you can win!
