Pictures that Make me Smile!

I love pictures! They hold so many happy memories and things that make me laugh!

Here are some of my favorites that I have taken over this year (2010) and why they are so funny and special to me!

First,
Our adorable girls! Here they are wearing some new skirts that mommy made them and they were running around and being goofy! I ask them to stop for a picture and as soon as I took it, the oldest princess breaks out in a goofy dance! Lol! The youngest always smiles so big that she closes her eyes! Lol!



Next, my niece!
There are so many reasons to smile here!
She was born with a cleft lip and palette. Her cleft lip was actually a double cleft. She has had 3 surgeries since she was born and every time she has done really good and now, you can hardly tell she had any cleft at all!
In this picture she was showing off and kept closing her eyes every time I took a picture of her! She is so funny!



The next two pictures are not smiling faces, but they really make me smile and laugh! Our girls were playing with a toy in the kitchen and they threw it up on one of our refrigerators. So they started looking under the two refrigerators! Lol!



Too funny!
I look forward to our Christmas pictures and Lord willing, a lot of great pictures to make us smile next year!

I am participating in the Invisalign Teen Bright Smiles Holiday Photo Contest with Dumb Mom.

"Away in A Manger"

My children love this Christmas song! And I love singing it with them!

25 Days Of Christmas Music Day 4 " I heard the Bells on Christmas Day"

25 Days Of Christmas Music
Day 4
"I heard the Bells on Christmas Day"

First a disclaimer! I am not a fan of Harry Belafonte, but I do love this song!

Now to "Peace"!

"Peace on earth good will to men"

Who believes we really have that on earth anymore? All the war, death, fighting, breakdown of families, morals and values are disregarded, unborn babies are killed and children are thrown out to the "wolves"!

I believe that Christmas is a wonderful time for us to return to peace and living a peaceful life.

But that is up to each of us to decide on our own.

Think it is too much for you? We are not alone! God is for peace, God is for us! He gives us strength, He gives us Himself! With Him we can have peace! But we have to take the first step to let Him into out life and put on the new man/woman!

So what do you want this Christmas? Peace? Let God in and give Him Everything! Put on His armour and stand for peace!

25 Days Of Christmas Music
Day 3
"Joy To The World"

with Big Daddy Weave!



Joy! Christmas is the time for joy! Not stressing and worrying! Not anger and depression! It is the time for joy! To sing, laugh, love and enjoy the family and all who are dear to you! How can you show your love and care this Christmas without joy in your heart?

This Christmas season, instead of stress and anger, give your troubles to God, grab some chocolate and sing, "Joy to The World" and let all your troubles melt away!

25 Days Of Christmas Music Day 2 "Love Came Down at Christmas"

25 Days Of Christmas Music
Day 2
"Love Came Down at Christmas"
Sung by jarsofclay
I think the lyrics of this sang say it all! =)
Christmas is the time to love! To focus on God's love for us, that He loved us so much that He sent His only Son, and He sacrificed Himself for our sins!
Christmas is the time to show others how much we love and care for them!
Hope you enjoy the song, and remember this Christmas season that LOVE is the greatest!

25 Days of Christmas Music Day 1 "Go Tell It on The Mountain"

Welcome to Day 1 of the 25 Days of Christmas Music!

The first song is:

"Go Tell it on The mountain"

sung by

Needtobreathe

I did not learn this song till I was in my middle teens. We would sing it every Sunday after our Bible reading (home church), before Christmas! My youngest brother (at the time) Loved singing this song! I can still hear my family singing this song! We sometimes sang it after Christmas or even thru the year, because we loved it so much! =)

I played it for my girls today and they love Needtobreathe already, so they really liked hearing this!

I think "Go tell it on the Mountain" is just a great "children's" song! Maybe it will bring out the "child" in you this Christmas season! I think we all could use a little of that!

Child-like faith, child-like joy and child-like love!

25 Days of Christmas Music!

Hey friends!
I am going to share a Christmas song from a youtube video for the next 25 days, till Christmas day (if my computer holds up! Lol!)!
These will be a selection of some of my favorite songs and musicians!
Hope you enjoy and leave comments!!
(If you want to join, let me know and I will add a linky!)!

Have a very Merry musical Christmas!
