Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Inside and out!

Mother nature has been doing her part. Last night and all through the day today, she graced us with almost a foot of snow! The girls had a ball on the deck this morning, playing for almost an hour. Brrrrrr....I stayed inside, enjoying a hot cup of coffee.

Regan always enjoys playing outside, but sometimes I wonder if it's just so she can come back in and have a cup of 'hot' chocolate with marshmallows. (Luke warm chocolate would be a better description!) Sage is now joining in the tradition too. Today, mommy made them a special white chocolate raspberry treat, using my flavored coffee creamers. After about two sips, Regan was saying 'I could drink this all day'. By the end, she was telling me it was too sweet!

The tree is up and finally decorated. It was a process that lasted a few days. Assembly and lights one day, bows and beads another and finally decorations Thursday night. The stockings are still in the closet, maybe we'll have to get those out tomorrow.

What a gorgeous tree. Ours is up already (before thanksgiving) but hey, i am a nut!
Another neat cocoa treat is to make the cocoa like normal, nice and hot. Then put a dollop of FROZEN cool whip in the cup. It cools it down just right, and gives a nice sweet creamy taste! I'll have to try creamer next time for my girls. Stay warm!
