Precious Gifts Abound

Babies are of course a precious gift, but so is a new home that is filled with the pattering of my two little ones and is now all settled in and waiting for baby #3. I am so thankful to have my internet back on and to be back out in blog land! Here is a little card I did a few weeks ago for a friend that had her first baby, a little girl, not to long ago. I used the Precious Baby stamp set , also available as a digi set, from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps.

Our family has been celebrating Advent this year with a special time set aside for it each night before I tuck my kiddos into bed. What a blessed time that has been! So many precious things to be thankful for...a new home, waiting for my new baby and more than any of those the amazing gift of Jesus Christ, humbling Himself for our sakes and coming as a baby just like each of us do to enter this world. We are each year establishing more and more traditions and meaning into the crazy holiday season and it is such a rewarding endevor to see my children light up when they remember something that we've done before. Adding to this year's annual gingerbread cookie making we are going to celebrate baby Jesus' birth with a cake and sing to Him on Christmas day, Zach is already very much looking forward to it.

I hope you will all take time to look around for the gifts that abound in your life and embrace them. Hugs....
