Christmas 2017

Christmas has come and gone. I always get a little sad when Christmas is over.  All the pretty lights and decorations go away and people go back to being mean to each other. As if Christ is only important to them only one day of the year. Sigh.

So we didn't have a white Christmas so my snowman teapot was our snowman.

We had a failed attempt at making gingerbread houses from a kit
The remnants of Christmas crackers. We had fun!
I should have taken pictures of us with our crowns from the Christmas crackers but I forgot.
Hope your weekend is awesome.


  1. Love your teapot, that is adorable!
    It's finally cold here in SE Georgia. Hot chocolate and
    banana nut bread are the order of the day. I'm planning my
    New Years Eve table, but we'll be home and quiet, as usual.

    Fireworks and festivities are best from home!

  2. May you and your family have a blessed New Year, Regina!

  3. Well I sure hope and pray people will continue to be nice! Would you like me to pack up some of our snow? We got another 9 inches yesterday and today. I sure like your little snowman teapot though. Have a wonderful weekend.

  4. It looks like you had a great Christmas season. We didn't have snow, either, but those not far north of us did. I was glad we didn't, because I was transporting a friend to my house, and it would have been seriously not fun if she could not have come!

  5. I love the Christmas crackers photo! and your gingerbread houses. I've always wanted to do that and perhaps in another year or so when our Baby Grand is older, we'll give it a for-real shot! It seems your Christmas was filled with love and happiness and really, that's the best.

  6. Oh...Christmas crackers!
    My husband is from Canada and it was there years ago when I first learned of crackers. We have them every year and enjoy them so much. Years ago we had to bring them from Canada as you couldn't find them here, but they have become popular.
    Darling tea pot!

    Blessings to you and your loved ones for the New Year~

WARNING: Some Parts of This Post Is Controversial!

I wonder what would happen if men had a march similar to the recent women's marches demanding their right not to be exposed to half dressed women in the workplace, in church, on the street, on magazine covers, etc? What if they marched demanding their right to be treated like men and not a child by their wives and girlfriends? To be allowed to be a dad instead of their child being killed in the womb? To not be portrayed on television and movies as idiots?

What would happen if they  wore (like inappropriately shaped hats the women wore on their heads to prove their womanhood ) on their heads inappropriately  shaped hats to prove their manhood?

 Satan has been telling lies to women ever since The Garden:

" I can wear this see through dress! It's my body!"

"It's his problem if my low cut blouse causes him to lust"

"It's not a baby, it's tissue! It's my body!"

"Motherhood degrades women"

"We don't  need to submit to …

25 Years Ago...

I married the love of my life. Back then I couldn't see 25 years into the future. I never imagined having three daughters.  We didn't anticipate struggles on both our parts but we are so grateful for the way the Lord has brought us through. Things are not perfect between but we continue to trust God and know that He can work things out.
And now for your giggling pleasure, here are a few pictures from our wedding. This was before I was into a conservative plain lifestyle. Sorry for the blurriness.

For Today

 Looking out my window  ...It has stopped snowing. It's been a mixture of snow, hail and rain today and it is very cold and windy out.
I am thinking... about whether I should prayerfully and gently confront a sister in the Lord who is being dishonest about something, though I hoped I had imagined it, sadly today I discovered it was true.☹
I am thankful... We made it home safely today after going into town and getting caught in the snowstorm. God is good!
One of my favorite things... is to read Keepers at Home magazine

I am wearing... a purple flowered dress covered up by my apron and black slippers

I am creating... well I will be sewing up some hanging veil head coverings. Some of the ones I have are getting stained. My middle daughter suggested I save my white veils for church or other church related activities. My husband suggested that I keep the stained ones for when I clean the house. They are so wise in their suggestions…
