I forgot one. And a few answers.

I forgot one picture the other day when I posted some of our Christmas decorations ...


Our house is the one on the right. Ha.

Totally kidding ... I know this picture has been floating around the internet (thanks Kristen!) ... but it still makes me laugh every time I see it!


I have received several emails with the same questions about the 12 Days of Giving ...

I didn't see this until just now ... can I start late?!
Yes ... you can start whenever you want ... better late than never! You can either back blog like I always do or you can start late ... it is up to you. I'd just be blessed to have you participate, because everyone has something to give ... and ya'll are inspiring me and others!

I'm not sure I have 12 things to give ...
Of course you do! Think outside of the box ... giving isn't always about having money to give.

What about giving your time by volunteering at your child's school? What about giving more of your time to your family? What about giving unusual thanks in a note to someone letting them know you appreciate them?

At the end of the day, if you did something for someone that made their heart happy ... then you gave. It is that easy!


  1. I'm in - Hopefully I'll get the link posted on my blog later today.
    P.S. The boxer is in Utah - about 40 minutes south of Salt Lake City.

  2. Beautiful! (Kids, decor, everything!) Okay, can you share your secret? I have always struggled at Christmas time to capture the glow of the lights, the sparkle in the kids' eyes when decorating (the reflection from the lights in their eyes) and you did it... can you give me some hints on your settings? Taken during the day? Night? Fill flash? No flash? ISO? I can't seem to get the right combination! Thanks for sharing! (And yes, I'll be getting to the 12 Days of Giving as soon as the kids go to bed!! Love the idea!! Thanks for letting us all join in!)
