I have something special, just for you my readers. I wanted to give you a present this year for following along and putting up with my sporadic posts and everything else!!
This is a 4-page coloring book for the nativity. It focuses on Luke 2 and Matthew 2. It’s just a small book….well, it’s more like pages, to tell the real story of Christmas. The focus of these pages are geared toward Catholic, as I used the New American Standard Bible (NASB). Any faith surely can use it though!!
If you’re interested in these coloring pages, please just….

Today is my little girls 18th birthday!! I can’t believe how fast time has gone. She’s an amazing
girl woman who brings joy to everyone that she touches. She has a smile that brightens the world around her. I’m so proud to be her Momma and I’m honored that God chose me to take care of this angel.
She has hopes and dreams….and I have no doubts that she’ll accomplish all of the, one way or the other. She gives it her all in everything that she does. She has a faith that runs deep and never doubts what God has planned for her.
As I reflect on the past 18 years, all I have is love and joy. I know she’s not perfect, she is mine after all. She’s truly a great
kid woman and has a bright future. I remember being told I couldn’t have kids and I remember the day I found out that I was pregnant. Life would never be the same!! She has always done things her way and she has amazing strength….and some that she doesn’t even know she has. She was my partner all the times that hubby was gone due to military life. Her dad is her buddy and they enjoy getting in trouble together. Through it all, she knows that we’re her parents and love her unconditionally.
Happy Birthday sweet
girl young lady!! Daddy and I wish you all the best today….and every day of your life to come. We can’t wait to see what lies ahead!! You may be grown up, but you’ll always be our little girl!! 😀
It’s time for Macro Monday!! This week, I chose a picture from a couple weeks ago when we had so much snow. We were supposed to have a “dusting” to an inch and ended up with 6″. I don’t like winter or snow, but it sure does make for nice photography!!
Here’s my Macro Monday….
Be sure to check out the other Macro Monday photography here….
We’ve been having class for a couple of weeks now, but this is the first real craft that I’ve made for the kids. I have to say that they loved it!!
This is a simple paper craft. Once completed, the kids can put Jesus in the Jordan River with John the Baptist, dip him in the water, and baptize him. This project does need adult supervision to cut the slit in the river. There are complete directions and supply list included, along with the patterns.
If you’re interested in the paper craft, just click to….
You can find a picture of our finished project on Instagram here, here, and here. Notice that we didn’t glue it on construction paper, which I really wanted to do. I do recommend that you do it that way, as is given in the directions.
