It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! :-)

We're thanking the Lord for a restful and fun first few days into the Christmas season!
We've enjoyed starting in on our first Christmas puzzle of the season!
It is a new "12 Days of Christmas" themed one!

The boys love decorating gingerbread houses!
(and sampling the candy! ;-)
 
 

It's been pretty cold outside the past several days,
so we've enjoyed staying warm and cozy inside by the warm fire. 
 
One night, the little cowgirl mounted her horse, and decided to practice her "barrel racing."

 Uh . . . . I guess she wore out her other horse,
so rounded-up a new one! 
 More fun on the puzzle . . . .
 On Sunday, we had a most wonderful time with Richie and Lydia at the
"It's a Wonderful Improvised Life" play! 
It was very, very fun!
Love, love, love these two!!!
They always make our times together so special!
 Kyle loved the dessert platter! : -)
 We finished the puzzle in less than 24 hours!  
  Brrrrrr.  . . the little farm-chore helper has to get quite bundled to go outside!
 Valerie enjoyed working on this beautiful cross-stitch
as a hospitality gift for a very special family that invited us to their home yesterday!
She picked this verse especially for them,
praying it will bring comfort to them as they walk through various trials right now.    
 They blessed us so very much with the amazing lunch and dinner,
and such sweet fellowship!! 

 They live in this lovely home,
on lots of very peaceful acres of land,
surrounded by God's beautiful creation and creatures!  
 We had sooooo much fun with them!
 Thank you, so very much B. Family for such a delightful day with you all!
We enjoyed our time spent with you all immensely!
Your servant's hearts for the Lord and for others,
is such a blessing and inspiration to us!

Looks pretty cozy. Record breaking puzzle time. Next time you all make gingerbread houses, give me a call. I can be in charge of filling the candy bowls. Great pictures. Love, Meemom

Hee, hee! Yes, the chocolate candy particularly needs refilling regularly! :-)

Yes, it IS very cozy here! Can't wait till you two are here and can snuggle up in front of your fireplace!
Love you!

*refuses to give an answer unless anonymous wants to reveal him/herself*

And even if (theoretically) I was to answer, what are you referring to?
