It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Twas the day before Christmas...

We had nothing to do, so my sisters and I 
went outside and had some fun in the snow!

Being blessed with sisters is such a wonderful thing!

We may not always get along, but one thing I always can count on is that my 
sisters have my back!

Through the good times and bad,
my sisters are the ones I can always rely on.

 "I thank my God upon every remembrance of you..."

This holiday season, I am taking advantage of the extra time with my siblings...

for truly it is the most wonderful time of the year!

Merry Christmas, God bless us everyone!

Wedding Preview

I had the amazing opportunity to do my first wedding shoot for my family's best friends.
 My family and the Hughes have been friends ever since I can remember.
Almost all of my childhood memories, include their two children - Tabitha and Josh.
This past Tuesday, Joshua married a lovely young lady, and I was able to share a part in their happiness

Go Tell

Go, tell it on the mountain,

Over the hills and everywhere

Go, tell it on the mountain,

That Jesus Christ is born.

While shepherds kept their watching

o’er silent flocks by night,

Behold, throughout the heavens

There shone a holy light

The shepherds feared and trembled,

When lo! above the earth,

Rang out the angels chorus

That hailed our Savior's birth.

Down in a lowly manger

The humble Christ was born

And God sent us salvation

That blessed Christmas morn.

Go, tell it on the mountain,

Over the hills and everywhere

Go, tell it on the mountain,

That Jesus Christ is born.

Christmas Lights

Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, 
and behold, 
everything is softer and more beautiful.

O Christmas Tree!

Setting up the tree...

a family event that makes way for the holiday season!

 Turn up the Christmas music,

Pull out the ornaments,

And make some fun filled memories!

Mom hands us each an ornament one at a time,
and we put them on the tree...

Our tree in the foyer is the traditional red and green colors...

However, our Dr. Seuss Tree (as we like to call it)...

is decorated with pink, teal, silver, and purple ornaments!

Christmas tradition::  Dad putting up the topper!

It truly is the most wonderful time of the year!

Winter Solstice

We got our first real snow yesterday, and it just made it feel like winter...

I awoke and just knew that there was snow blanketing the ground outside.  
Not only could I could feel it, 
but my room had a glow that only comes from a fresh snowfall.  
I ran to my bedroom window, threw open the blinds, 
and there it was.  

So white, clean, and glistening...

Winter, I welcome thee with outstretched arms!
