What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

2009 in review

In January...
I shared the family secret that had plagued me for two months. Adele' might be deaf. She went through five hearing exams, all failed (some due to technical difficulties) only to be told to come back when she is two. A year later~while she may be hearing impaired in one ear (maybe) she is not deaf by any means and jabbers with the best of them and comes a 'crawlin when you call. I praise God that He allowed me peace and joy as I accepted the news and I thank all of you for sharing and encouraging me during that questioning time.





In February, I spied my first bluebird.



In March, we got ChIcKeNs!!!



April showers brought:

lots of sewing for me and my girl...and a Panda who turned THREE.


In May,
I got apple blossoms for my birthday, laundry got lilac-infused on the line, I started my cardboard garden, Opa came to visit and MacDonalds farm got larger with a calf.


In JUNE

sisters adore one another. (and I posted a skirt tutorial.)




In July:
I start my Gratitude list.
(and I hosted a rainy book exchange. And the garden grew.)



In August:
we went visiting.

Matt used vacation time for the first time in....ages.

In September:

my girl turned six (*sniff*)
I got my LIBRARY!!!!!
We had our FIRST Foto Friday Challenge (to be restarted next week! So be ready!)
and
we started off the school year with a bang!


In October:

Harvesting went into high gear
we made cider
the Blob MOVED NOT
Got bunkbeds--now have a spare bed--NEED MORE CHILDREN
Had a tussle with Blue Eyeliner (I won)



In November:

We somehow survive self-portrait Christmas Family photos again this year
The Elf workshop opens
We get indoctrinated in evolution
We use any excuse to play

and baby turns ONE.



In December:

We created
We decorated
We admired
and we had the best Christmas ever.


Because we have life and love that is so much more abundant than we deserve.

I really liked the re-cap too. We're heading over to my parents for a while tonight (eat junk, play games, eat more junk.), but I am going to try to post the Laura and Mary dolls I made Honey for Christmas. And our snow "adventures" from this AM. If I don't get to it though, HAPPY NEW YEAR to you!

Beautiful post and a wonderful year filled with so many blessings.

I don't get a chance to comment often, but I do read on my reader. I'm hoping this year, I'll be able to visit more often.

In His Grace,
