Christmas, Day 4

Suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the Heavenly Hosts:


We are having a lovely holiday. My brother came and spent a couple of days. We had a good time catching up.

Christmas, Day 3

An angel of the Lord appeared to the shepherds, and said, Today a Savior is born in Bethlehem. You will find him wrapped in bands of cloth, in a manger.

Christmas, Day 2

There were shepherds out in the fields, watching their flocks at night.

Christmas, Day 1

I enjoyed posting the advent moments that I decided to continue with the 12 days of Christmas:

Here is the reason for the season, Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus wrapped in swaddling bands, laying in a manger.


Merry Christmas!

Advent, Day 24

Today is the final Advent moment; the angels announcing the Good News to the shepherds. As you can see, I didn't quite get done, but at least you can get the idea of what it is going to look like.

The verse, which isn't stitched yet, is For unto you this day is born a Savior who is Christ the Lord.


We always open our gifts on Christmas Eve, because DH was always too impatient to give his gifts. It is not that he wants to get his gifts, he wants to give them. I was blown away this year, because he got me a tablet!

Our family liked their gifts too:

C is making jewelry


 and mama and P are putting Legos together:

Advent, Day 23

This day's moment is the Wise Men bringing gifts to the baby. It is out of order a little bit from the story in the Bible, but I know why Mary Beale did it. She wanted to end with the Angels' announcement.


I really like the load on the camel. The baby Jesus is just 3 stitches, but the whole stable is glowing.
