Christmas at our Home!!

Christmas at our house Started 4 Sundays before the 25th, when we lit the first advent candle.

This is our non-traditional advent wreath.. next year I will do a more traditional one.

Then on the 5th Santa came and filled up the kids stockings, which really hit it off! By then all the decor was up and ready to go!!! Here's some pics of that fun filled morning of the 6th!

Richard was the first to see his stocking!Who would have guessed that Will's favorite stocking stuffer was a dolphin toothbrush! lol! He had to brush every toys teeth, every dogs teeth, cat, whatever... that well, now it is just a toy.. not for human use! lol

Christmas eve the kids, well William ( Richard fell asleep to early) got to open up one present.. their Christmas P.j.'s provided by Grammy Palmer.

It was fun this year... Will got Kongfu Panda ones and Rich Thomas the Train.. of cours!

lol! Very non-traditional! :)

Next morning... CHRISTMAS MORNING... the kids found gifts left for them! Not wrapped.. these our the special gifts you get right before we light the Christ Candle, to remember the gift God gave to us! Our Savior!

Then Nate's Parents came over and we at Breakfast and opened up more presents then I have ever seen on Christmas morning!

We had a secret Santa this year, who more then doubled our gifts under the Tree. Thank-you whoever you are!!! You made Christmas this year for us!!

Will's unwrapped gifts!! He was so excited to see Jay Jay the Jet Plane stuff, cars and Panda!

Richard of Cours' got more Thomas the Train... he's a little obsessed, we know! :)

And well I forgot to get my Camera out for the rest.. it was all too exciting!!

Hope you all had just as Merry as a Christmas as we did! Lots of Love to all!!!

This is something I just have to share with others! I fell in love with Akaine's art, a prodigy child, last year. When a friend sent me a fwd about her. She is 13 years old now. Not only does she paint, but she is a brilliant Poet as well. She has two best selling books out, already.

Just take a look at these paintings and the age she painted them at. I think your mouth will drop and your mind wonder at the talent and brilliance, this little girl has.

The Prince of Peace, at age 8. You should definitely get on her website and read her story about painting this most precious portrait. My favorite Portrait of our Savior. He just looks so alive!

Age 11, Mother's Love (Mary holding the newborn Christ)

At age 11, a self portrait.

At 5 years old!
"I have been blessed by God. And if I am blessed, there is one reason and one reason only, and that is to help others."
Such wisdom.. How I fear for this young teenager, she is so blessed... Surely Satan will try her.
She was born into an atheist home and introduced Christ to her family.
She has painted and wrote so much, click on the link to see her website, search through her gallery, poetry, and see a glimpse of her life.

Art at 4 yrs

William has such an interest for art. He is always drawing, or asking others to draw, while he gapes over and watches your every move. He usually knows what he wants drawn.. and will let you know when you draw it wrong. :)
His art work has improved greatly over the last couple months.. And I wanted to share it with you...
I find it amazing that I can actually tell, generally, what it is he has drawn!
We are so happy for our little guy and hope he continues to progress, with what is looking like, it could be, a future talent!

Okay from, top to bottom.. the first one ??? where not too sure what it is. I asked William if it was a train, he shook his head no... "a bug", I said.. he shook his head no.. So I dono... you guess! William says the next one is a bzzzz.. so I interpret Bee! Then we have a plane and a spider.

William is autistic and has a hard time communicating, since he has very few words. (But on a side note, we have heard a great improvement this year, since he started school again! Thank-you Mrs Bette, Mrs Michelle, and Bloomfield Pre-K! I know the environment you have set, has really helped!) He has always tried using pictures, to get across, what it is he is trying to say. Perhaps this is what started him drawing.

William is so proud of his work. He is constantly hanging it up in different areas around the house! He loves to show it off and just sit and admire it!

Farmington Renaissance Fair

Swords, knights, Lady's in waiting, kings, Queens, dragons, and castles....
Are but a few thoughts we had when we herd about a Renaissance Fest.
Nathan and I love this time period. Nathan loves it for the jousting, folk lore and noble knights. Me, I love it for the clothes, music, and architecture! So of course we were going to dress up and and go!
And I am so glad we did. We went to several of these in Europe and loved them.. But of course that was in Europe where the setting couldn't be better... Right on Castle grounds! So we weren't expecting to much being here in the US, and in the desert of all places.
We were wrong though! The local SCA did a fantastic job, as well as the Farmington Museum! The booths and entertainment fit perfectly with the time period! And I loved how so many dressed from the different era's. It was almost like being in Europe. Can't say it was as good as the ones in Europe.. you really can't beat the settings there.

Well While we were there, I decided to pay a visit to the local Gypsy, very educational. (lol, I don't believe in this stuff, but it was fun, and yes very sacrilegious (bad me)) She did one tarot card for me.... It was a Naked lady! ( I was like- okay, and what is this suppose to mean? (I need to get naked more, lol)) She informed me that this meant that me or my spouse (Nathan) have some kind of addiction. And that we need to stop it, for it is ruining one of our bodies and causing contention in our marriage. (lol)
My good ol' pal Amber went with me, and get this, Amber pulled a Angel card out of the deck, and the same Gypsy told her that Angels where guiding her and her husband in their marriage and as long as they listen to them, they will live happily ever after..
So I get naked people and contention, while Amber gets Angels and happily ever afters.

A bit of Germany

A few weeks ago I learned about Aztec having an Oktoberfest. Being a Tradition from Germany, and me missin' life there so, there was no way I was missin' out! Even if it wasn't in September. So I got out me and Will's leaderhousens and ventured over to Aztec. They had a parade, booths, clowns, bratwursts, face painting... It was a great road down the memory lane.. Even though it didn't quite compare to the real thing. I really was grateful for the chance to go.
So many people commented on our dress.. Especially Will's.. Said he was so authentic... He should have been the mascot. Fun Fun!
Here's a pic of us afterwards!

And yes it is a holiday all about the alc.. we just skip that part. So no worries. I'm not exposing my children to anything of the sorts.

My husband the Artist

I don't know if everyone knows, but Nathan is extremely talented when is comes to drawing. But he has One Huge Issue... He never thinks his work is good enough. So almost always, he throws it away. So frustrating, because it is more than most people could ever hope to do, with plenty of classes. He's got born talent!
You can judge this for yourself. I have attached his latest big peice of work. And by big I mean the size. Normally he just draws on the back of the church programs, they hand out every Sunday before church starts. He draws during sacrement. He says it helps him listen to the speakers better.. I wonder though, since most his art is of Football players. :) AnyWays, this piece he did for one of his Sister Casey's nanny kids. Its a Dragon! And it only took him 15 minutes... Now if it was me.. I think it would have taken me a bit longer! ;)
