. . . we started Lemon Parsley potatoes in the crockpot for supper.
. . . talked to a few friends and heard about how God is moving in a situation we have been praying for!
. . . rocked Katya and cuddled her (many, many times today).
. . . Charity did some sewing.
. . . we put up the decorations on the New Year's Tree.
Katya loves hanging up her ornaments, and any others she can get permission to hang.
The 4 youngest are the ones who always help me do this, and we have a great time doing it together.
And the admiring commences.
It doesn't show in this photo, but dear friends of ours gave us two lovely hand-crafted Matroishkas--out of felts, I think, that are gracing our tree for the first time! It felt really neat to have their gift to put on!
May God have mercy on us in 2013, and I pray that I can serve Him with a passionate heart. Happy New Year to all my blog readers!
