Newest Edition(s)

No, we're not pregnant.  

I'm actually talking about this:

Santa came a little early and brought our family gift - a new entertainment center and huge television.  Dave was ready - our old TV was about as boxy as they come, and had lines on the top third of the screen.  I'm happy to report that it has now gone the way of all the earth.
The T.V. was mostly for Dave - he's in love with it.  The entertainment center is what makes me happy.  And Kate?  Well, she's very pleased with the new cupboards that are full of surprises and haven't yet been baby-proofed.  Yet being the key word - sorry Kate!

We also did a gift exchange with Dave's parents, who are going to be out of the country over Christmas.  Here is what they got me - a beautiful new nativity!  I love the colors - especially since so many of mine are so neutral.  

I love the wise men -their robes each depict part of the story - one shows them on camels as they journey to see the Savior, there are angels singing on another, and (my favorite) the Star given as the sign of the Savior's birth on the third.

I also love the outline of Bethlehem in the background.

And my very very favorite is the perfect baby Jesus.

Insert sigh of contentment here.


  1. They are both beautiful! I bet Dave is in heaven with his new TV. I know we were pretty much in love when we got ours. Hope you guys are doing well!

  2. Bob will be so happy that Dave has a big TV now... I love your entertainment center... We need one of those. You'll have to tell us where you got yours. I love your nativity!

  3. I think Santa has favorites, I think I am only getting a teapot. haha.
