He is Risen!


I love Easter. It’s my favorite holiday, and not just because I’m passionate about Cadbury eggs. I mean… I am, but…

Today was fantastic. It was a bright, sunny day. The three church services I sang in were full of energy and life. My brother and his girlfriend were up from Baton Rouge, and our visit as a family was awesome (even though we missed Daniel – he’s studying abroad in Paris!). And the food was good, too, even if I’m a tad bitter about not having any Peep cake.


The halls are decked!


I had my annual-ish “friendsgiving” party on Sunday night! Everyone comes over, eats lots of Thanksgiving-type food, and helps me decorate my house. Always a good time. Here’s a glimpse of Christmas at my house:

I made this fantastic wreath using this tutorial. Cute, right? And it only cost about $7 to make and took about 30 minutes!

Stockings, Christmas village, tree! I put up significantly fewer village pieces this year than I usually do. Trying to scale back, you know.

And here’s my Nativity and my Star Wars Advent calendar! Woo! (Yes, Jesus is already in the Nativity scene – He’s stuck in with double-sided foam tape.)

Just a peek. 🙂 What’s your favorite part of Holiday decorating?
