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

Homemade eggnog, as much as you wish.  Freshly whipped cream, the same.  Sparkle lights and polar bears.  Little Smokies and Gouda cheese.  Red ribbon wrapped round and round.  A bin of long-awaited Christmas books brought in from the barn and surrounded by children in blanket nests.  Dancing girls and tractor pancakes.  Chocolate letters tucked in wooden shoes.  An empty cradle, aglow and waiting.  

And twinkling- twinkling everywhere.

Oh - this looks so pretty! I adore the decorations along your veranda!
I hope you are going well. I know that you must be counting down the days until baby makes his/her appearance! I've been praying for you!
Have a lovely day

Dear Rebecca
I'm afraid I'm stalking your blog looking for news of Tiddle. How are you & he/she going? I check in every day just in case....
But really I want to take the chance to wish you & your beautiful family a very Happy Christmas! It is unlikely I will check here between now & Christmas as we are going to see family!!! YAY!!! and I have so much to do before we leave.... :)
