Choosing to love...and still loving

Twenty five years ago we chose to love. I can hardly believe that much time has passed. In some ways, it seems like only yesterday  that I walked down the aisle and took his hand. In other ways, it seems like a lifetime ago. In truth, it is both.
Since then, life has brought many changes. God has given us three wonderful sons  that are quickly growing into men. And now a pretty little farm for us to live on just like we always dreamed of.
But along the way, we've had challenges too~ emotional, financial, health. We've seen mountain tops and valleys.
And we have changed ourselves. However,  the one thing that has not changed is love except maybe that it has grown deeper.
Growing with that love is the knowledge that some days you must choose to love. Choosing to love gets you through the valleys and back up to the mountain tops like the one we are on today...

Celebrating 25 years of marriage  & still loving!

Not a creature was stirring

not even a candy mouse.

My sweet neighbor brought us these cute little mice nestled on a plate of Christmas cookies. What a clever idea! 
I just had to make some. You should make some too. All you need is: maraschino cherries with stems melting chocolate Hershey's Kisses almond slivers red gel icing

Be sure to rinse the cherries and allow them to dry overnight so the chocolate will stick.

Melt chocolate in small saucepan.

While it's melting unwrap Kisses. Eat a few (optional).

Dunk cherries in chocolate and give them a little spin to remove excess.

Lay chocolate covered cherries on parchment paper. Immediately lean a Hershey's Kiss against the stem-less side of the cherry. Add two almond slivers for ears and let dry.

Add gel eyes and noses to your sweet creatures.

Oh, so cute! Yummy, Christmas mice.

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder; and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting…

Christmas Lights in Snow

Is there anything quite so pretty
as Christmas lights in snow?

The winter storm passed through and  left a lovely blanket of white.

With the Christmas lights on last night  the whole farm was simply aglow.
