In and out like a flash

Christmas was very, very fun, but it was so fast. It went in and out like a flash. I kept thinking that one day, ' It is Christmas. Other days I will be wanting it to be this day. So, what do I do?'. Don't get me wrong, I loved it, but it was kind of strange. I had been waiting for it for a year, and it was suddenly there! I am missing it already. This was a wonderful Christmas with family, gifts, bread, and love. Thankfully, I took some pictures for you, but have not loaded them onto the computer yet, so just wait for a while.

Christmas Eve Eve

It's Christmas Eve Eve! We have last minute Toy Packaging to do, and we are loving every minute of it. Well, most of it. Do you all have your Christmas Music out and playing? We certainly do, if you know us :) . I thought I would add a few more Christmas Photos of us past years, so, enjoy!

All of the cousins on Dad's side, in 2009 I think.
 

This is baby Peter, if you're wondering.

One week till

It is only a week till Christmas and I am absolutely bursting at the seams! Our tree is sparkling with lights and there were almost to many ornaments to fit on the tree. We are finishing up Christmas shopping and shaking the gifts to find out what they are. I have no clue about any of them. Now, who is excited about their Christmas? A couple of past Christmas pictures follow:
Tired mom and I .

The year Dad gave Jenna and I Tiki's.
 I'll talk to you before the week is over!
Over and out, Esther.

Cutest smiles

Psalm 106:1-3 Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endures for ever. Who can utter the mighty acts of the LORD? who can show forth all his praise? Blessed are they that keep judgment, and he that doeth righteousness at all times. By Jenna Hartman.
I got these verses at www.holybible.com
                                                                                              


                                                                                  
 Jeremiah 20:12 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
 1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.

 Isaiah 12:2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
 Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

 Psalm 23:4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Co-op again!

We haven't been to co-op(our school we do on Monday's with a bunch of other homeschoolers)in nearly a month. . . with everyone being sick, the cabin, and thanksgiving. It was so good to see everyone again! Afterwards I went to the home of Fiona. She has a cute new puppy named Hugo. He has black fur and is very, very, small. He is so CUTE! Any way, the visit was exciting. Also, on The Wissmann Family blog( the Wissmann family are some really good Christian singers with a huge family), the couple Josiah and Abi just had a baby boy, Asher David!!!! Okay, you may think I seem a little overdramatic about people I have not even met officially, but I am so excited!!

Christmas Spirit

It is actually the first day of December! Yeah! I thought it would never come! We are starting to shop for Christmas and get out holiday decorations. And you should just see our Christmas lights this year! Dad did a great job on them. Just wait until you hear about our Christmas tree and how wonderful it will be! My favorite Christmas song is "Mary did you know". I also love  songs from the Slugs and Bugs albums. I love them!
