Serving Your Husband

How well do you serve your husband? This is a topic I’ve struggled with and certainly a question I’ve asked myself before…but not for any good reason.

What Jesus Really Wants for Christmas?

I certainly hope the phrase "better late than never" applies to this post considering that I'm just getting around to posting my families Christmas morning pictures. - Any who, this year we tried to be very "spiritual" and really focus on what Jesus would want for Christmas.  I got the idea ...

Say Cheese!

Hi…I’m back! So, I dropped off of the edge of the blogosphere for a while there, didn't I?
