a season of hope

Yesterday was my sister's birthday.

Happy birthday Holly!

Wednesday Joe and I went to see It's a Wonderful Life at the movie theatre!

It was so fun to see it on the big screen!

We noticed things we hadn't seen before even though we've 

seen it hundreds of times.

It is both of our favorite movies of all time.

My mother's birthday was this week as well. 

She came over along with my brother and his girlfriend.

We had prime rib (her favorite) with baked potatoes and salad.

There was pecan pie for dessert!

I took Bonnie and Verne to the aquarium as a Christmas present.

We weren't quite sure how he would do as he's just 14 months old.

He was absolutely fantastic! He loved it!

He kept laughing and shouting "fishy!"

I think he would have climbed into the tank with them if he could have!

Afterward, we stopped for a bite to eat....

He tired himself right out.

Keeping Sabbath


My soul magnifies the Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
For he has looked on the humble estate of his servant.
For behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
for he who is mighty has done great things for me
and holy is is name.
And his mercy is for those who fear him
from generation to generation.
He has shown strength with his arm;
he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts;
he has brought down the mighty from their thrones
and exalted those of humble estate;
he has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has helped his servant Israel,
in remembrance of his mercy,
as he spoke to our fathers,
to Abraham and to his offspring forever.

Luke 1:47-55

Monday we were told that my sister's colon cancer has reoccurred on her sacrum bone.

She had her original surgery over 6 years ago.

She begins the first of her two week, daily radiation treatments today.

After that she will have chemo every other week for 4 months.

After that she will be on a chemo pill for the rest of her life.

Throughout all of it, we pray unceasingly.

In this season of Advent,  I am reminded of who He is...

and of all He can do...even to the most humble of us.

11 December

the good

Joe and I went to the Beacon Hill Holiday Stroll on Thursday night.

It was absolutely beautiful!

There is something about Christmas in the city!

It was like we were in a Hallmark movie!

the random

Charles street window displays

snow faeries dresses for the Christmas tree ball

the fun

It snowed all day and all night on Saturday!

Jack and I took a walk past the Christmas tree stand...

There aren't too many trees left now

party dress in tinsel town

I was doing some browsing in TJ Max the other day

and happened upon this beautiful Christmas tree skirt.

It looked like a dress you would wear to a party in tinsel town....
