1. Everything's a necklace to this girl.
2. I'm so glad we got a huge wreath for our front window a few years ago. We always look through it to see the snow falling- which has been happening a few times this week!
3. Baby-sized nativity + a teddy bear. Hadley knows "baby Jesus"!
4. Currently wrapping with tissue paper. (ran out of all my rolls and waiting to stock up until after Christmas sales)
5. Shedding my scarf and glasses to settle down for a long winter's nap.
6. December wouldn't be complete without watching Daddy coach some boys basketball.
7. Afternoon showing of The Polar Express. She comes to stand by me during the loud train part, but loves it.
8. Banana pancakes! Planning to have these again as part of Christmas breakfast.
9. Teeny toys that go inside...

Your blog always makes me feel so excited for Christmas! I love the nativity scene with the teddy bear! Too cute! It is so good that you have a little one for your daughter to play with... That is the true meaning of Christmas!!

Ooh, I love Josh Groban and Little Drummer Boy is one of my favourite Christmas carols so I just gave his version a listen. Now I'm thinking I might have to download the whole album!



about this blog

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.

"If Christ be anything, He must be everything."
-C.H. Spurgeon
