It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I've been so excited to show my Christmas decorations! I've had them up since right after Thanksgiving but I haven't had a chance to get pictures on the blog until now.

I guess that's what happens when you're planning your daughter's first birthday in the midst of Christmas season craziness. ;)

I love how my house looks at Christmas, it seriously makes me want to cozy up next to the fire, drink some eggnog and listen to Christmas music with my family.

Here is the wreath that hangs on our front door.

Here is our Christmas Tree, it's in the corner of our living room. Can you believe that this will be our 5th Christmas as a married couple and we still don't have a star or an angel for the top of our tree?! I seriously just need to go out and buy one on sale after Christmas this year. Right now we're just using a cross ornament for the top. =)

Here is our mantle with lights and stockings and all.

In the center of our mantle, we have a small manger scene. I like this one because it's so unique.

Here is one of our Christmas stocking hangers.

Here is Elliana's stocking. My sister Courtney made it for her. Didn't she do a great job?! I just love it.

Here is our other manger scene, the reason for the season. I love this one because it's almost identical to the one we had when I was growing up.

Here is our beautiful Christmas table cloth.

...and our centerpiece at our dinner table.

I think I got everything.

Can you believe Christmas is almost here?!

Where did you get the wreath for the front door?

Ok, that is freakin' hysterical. No wonder our babies are just 2 weeks apart. =) They learned it from us.

Gorgeous home, Christine. Beautiful and cozy.

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Husband, Caleb

Husband, Caleb
Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.


We fight one day and then the next day we're fine. We're always loud and crazy when we get together. We're very passionate. We've been through it all together, lots of ups and downs. We're eachother's biggest supporters.
