Christmas reflection..

Hello there! Wow seems like forever since I posted...I thought I would show our Christmas table...I didn't get alot of pictures this year..my camera was acting up and forgot to take it on Christmas day over to my wonderful in laws house! oh well...
Christmas Eve was a sunny day indeed..as you can see in the picture..it was quiet and serene around the property and there was just a fuzz of frozen dew on the grass..

We just a nice dinner with our kids where I took the opportunity to teach some manners much to my kids chagrin..I told them there wives and husbands would appreciate me in the years to come and let it go....hey I'm trying....


it seems like all the prepping and cooking and baking takes a month and then its all over and I sit down and grieve because its another Christmas I'm sorry that is over and I'm watching my kids grow and feeling like its all going to fast..I am feeling blessed and glad I can even sit up and enjoy it with them...

We have had alot of changes this year of 2009...and like many people feel a little bit in wonder of what is to come next..

But, I can tell you one thing..this handsome man of mine and I are having our 19 year anniversary next week and I am thinking its gonna be another good year...together..with our kids loving each other even more..Thanks for stopping by! Hope you all had the Merriest and most BLESSED Christmas! Love ya Mean it! Stephanie

Your table is just beautiful! I'm so curious as to what is in the bags. I just gotta say your husband looks like he is all of 19 years old. How could you all be married for 19 years? Congratulations and I wish you many more blessed years together.

You have one 'young looking' hubby there, I thought for a moment you were gonna say he was your son? I don't know you too well yet, but he does not look old enough to have been married 19 years! I was married for 13 yrs last week ;-)
