"It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas!"

It sure is! From the cats tearing the ornaments while chasing each other up and down the tree to cookie exchanges and The Big Guy you'll see below.

 We also had the opportunity to see the reindeer at The North Pole as you can see in the picture below.

In all the hustle and bustle of the season though, we've been able to keep our eye on the truth of the season, the birth of  Jesus Christ!   For without Jesus, there would be no eternal gift. There would be no forgiveness and we'd be doomed for hell. Without the Savior's Birth, there would be no unconditional love that would take HIS place for ours.  For this we are truly grateful and remembering that the gifts of this world are not the same as the eternal gift we have received because of the Birth of Jesus which we celebrate in December.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

Here's a list I found for baking substitutes...

Something New Is In The Horizon

It's been a while and I have to say that life has been good to us. I've decided to use this blog again to catch the day in the life of Little Bear and the new journey with homeschool. It will continue to be a day in the life and since I'll have more time than before to share, I hope to combine my love of being a stay at home mom and wife with home-making and raising, loving and teaching our darling little girl.  Expect healthy recipes, parenting posts, book reviews and more.

See you in two weeks!
