I come in the little things, Saith the Lord: Yea, on the glancing wing of eager birds, the softly pattering feet of furred and gentle beasts. I come in the little things, Saith the Lord: Not borne on the morning's wings of majesty, but I have set My feet amidst the delicate and bladed wheat. I come in the little things, Saith the Lord.

Counting the days till Christmas
An age old tradition.....

When time stands still,
It seems, for a child
Yet for me it goes fleeting by

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 
~Isaiah 9:6


  1. Delightful photo and isn't that quote so true.

  2. I love Advent calendars and the fun of anticipation they provide, especially for little kids. I still have a Hallmark Advent calendar I bought for myself my freshman year in college - it's a wintry Colonial village. I still put it on my fridge every year. Olivia looks like she's going to be a big fan of Advent calendars too. And "unto us a Child is born..." That can serve as your family's theme for 2016 with two new little ones on their way. Very exciting!!

    PS - is Olivia's hair naturally curly? She's rockin' that adorable, little kid "casual" look. Too cute for color TV. I had the same look, although I was blonde and in my case the word "bedhead" was frequently used - LOL. Mom said it was so easy to "fix" my hair - all she needed to do was to twist it around her fingers to arrange the bedhead rumples into loose curls. Hope Olivia keeps her curls - mine were pretty much gone by junior high. 🎁

    1. Yes, those curls are natural (inherited from her Daddy and me). That Advent Calendar was her Mommy's when she was growing up.
