Happy New Year!

May the Lord bless you in 2014!

His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun:
and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.
Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel,
who only doeth wondrous things.
And blessed be his glorious name for ever:
and let the whole earth be filled with his glory;
Amen, and Amen.
Psalm 72:17-19

Gingerbread House

One of my favorite places that we visited in Florida was the life sized Gingerbread House. Every year at the Grand Floridian, a life size Gingerbread House is made fresh and put in the six story lobby. They also have a 30 foot tall tree and while we were there, they had a live band playing Christmas music. There is a recipe for those who would like to attempt to make one of their own or you can buy Gingerbread right out of the house. Just writing about this makes me hungry for Gingerbread.

Little Wiseman

Jakob was just one when I took this picture of him looking at the wiseman. He loved the nativity scene and there was usually a figure missing every day.

The Best Gifts Are Free

Last year, putting up the tree, Jakob couldn't stay out of the box. The box went from boat, to train to house.
