Blessed Christmas and New Year

Blessed Christmas and New YearI'm sure you had a wonderful Christmas! I read some lovely words about Christmas that I would like to share with you! I believe these words are written by Phillip H. Barnhart, in a book "Christmas Is..."

"Christmas is God's love coming to everyone in Jesus Christ.
Christmas is God putting his arms of deep and far reaching love around the world and hugging it to Himself.
Christmas is God in the flesh, making tangible God's feelings about you.
You acknowledge such love when you put up your tree, decorate it with colors and shapes, and light it in joyful anticipation.
You honor such a gift when you choose particular presents for special people and give them in love and appreciation.
You affirm the coming of God in Christ when you read the story, sing the songs, listen to the Word, accept the truth, and feel the touch.
Christmas is knowing God loves you and comes to be with you.
Christmas is God in your heart."

I wish for all of you Christmas in your heart everyday!

We had a great time this Christmas spending time with our oldest and best friends, and in church worshiping. We are truly blessed.

I have been adding to my desktop layout with more holiday photos, this is how it looks now!Credits: Paper from Franziska's Whimsical Wonderland, flowers from Christina Renee's Art Fusion, ricrac by Miss Mint, but I can't remember where the Word Art is from? So sorry to the creator of this lovely word art, can anyone help me?
And I thought maybe someone will like to use the desktop template for their Christmas and holiday photos, so here it is!
This free template can be downloaded from the store here

We're Back

We're Back!
We've been back two days now, after a 25 days trip, what an adventure!! We're coping well with not too much jet lag, I went right back to work, and life is getting back to normal quickly, except the laundry!!!

Thank you to all of you who have been keeping us in prayers, we were truly blessed on the trip, kept safe, and in fine weather throughout, we've taken 5000 photos! Think of all the multi-photo layouts coming up!! I am feeling so homesick only from not getting to scrap for nearly a month! :)

How was the trip? Where do I begin? Amongst other things, these moments come to mind:
The Lockheed BlackBird at the Air and Space Museum (For dh)
The Holocaust Museum in Washington DC
Choosing a 14th Anniversary gift at Tiffany's in New York (For me!!)
Lady Liberty up close (for all!)
Being trained by Obi One Kenobi at the Jedi Academy at Disney (for Jared)
The changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
All that toys at FAO Schawtz and Toys R Us (for the 3 boys in my family)
Ground Zero and the St Paul's Chapel
Buying a very special ring at historic Harpers Ferry on our last day (me of course)
The Metropolitan Museum of Fine Arts
And probably most memorable of all, snow in Central Park!

And here's my first layout for the trip. None of us had ever seen snow falling before, and we were rewarded with our first snow on our second day in New York, our first sight of Central Park was really a winter wonderland - a truly magical morning!
By the way I used a mini kit I made and shared on my blog last year, finally I get a chance to use my own snowy christmasy light colored papers! Thought I'll share them again to say Blessed Christmas to everyone!
sorry these are no longer available
