I enjoyed inviting everyone in for Thanksgiving (and my bloggy-friend Linny suggested), so I'm doing it again! Come on in and join our Christmas! If you haven't seen it yet, our (non-traditional) Christmas card is here. I have to admit I'm feeling the weight this morning of everything going on around here. I'm ready for a Selah day. And maybe a nap. And it's only 7am. But, as Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday and I LOVE celebrating JESUS, let's get this party started!!

|Oh so yummy turkey dumpling stew!|
|Our "Happy Birthday, Jesus!" cheesecake|
We don't have an eternal flame, so we got as close to eternity in numbers as we could. :)
And, of course, we sang Happy Birthday.
