'Tis the Season for Believing

Last week after all that rain, Mom and I headed out to do some last minute Christmas shopping and there it was, the clouds in the shape of a cross. The sun lighting it up and making it even more beautiful.
It was so inspirational and a perfect reminder of what the holiday is all about. Miracles are everywhere.
Speaking of miracles, this little one was a miracle from the start and she holds all the magic and wonder that Christmas holds. She has been my little Christmas miracle this year and we can't wait for Santa to arrive.
I finished up my Christmas crafting this past week with a few more snow men and these ornaments that I made for a few family and friends.
This week I received some wonderful hand made gifts from sweet friends.
The amazing Luz made these beautiful stuffed stockings, and the card was so lovely.
The sparkly snowflakes were Shelby's favorite. She is all about the bling.
I love this snow shovel. The red feathers are great! Thanks so much Luz for thinking of us. Love you and Miss you!
Then I saw Angela on Saturday and she had this for me.
This vintage bell ornament is so pretty and reminds me of her. She decorated both sides. Thanks so much Angela, it was so good to see you!
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday with family and friends. This is my last post until after the New Year. I will be back with a Give Away for celebrating both my 200th post and my 2 year anniversary blogging!! I look forward to hearing from you all in the New Year!

Many Blessings,

God is so amazing, sometimes we feel he isn't really there and then we look up and see him right before us! That is the coolest sign in the clouds I have ever seen. I hope that you and your sweet family have the most wonderful Christmas ever. I hope we can get together after the New Year!
love you,

What a lovely Post my Sweet Girl. You have been my Christmas Angel from the beginning, and now there are the two of you! It was amazing how you chose to look up toward the sky, just then, to see the Cross shining. If it weren't for you, I would have missed it.
Love you, Mom
