Deck The Halls . . . .

“‘Tis the season!”  The time of family, friends, festivities, and fun are upon us.  Also, and most importantly, is the reminder that God loved us so much that He sent His Son to earth, in the form of a baby, as a sacrifice that would redeem us back to Himself.  Yep, it’s paramount that we keep our focus and be thankful for all that our Heavenly Father has done on our behalf; after all, Jesus is the reason for the season.

So, we deck the halls with boughs of holly and rejoice in all our blessings.  Here are a couple of pictures of our house “all decked out”.

And, of course, here are some pictures of our greatest blessings in this life time.    And, yes, we can still share Santa Claus with our grand children as a symbol of love and giving.  God gave his Son and He asked us to give our love – “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.  This is the first and greatest commandment.  And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.”

And, we can’t forget our fur kids who also bring us lots of joy throughout the year.  Katie is sitting next to the tree while Alex is staring at her.  I see trouble on the horizon.   Meow Christmas Y’all!!!

One last thing, our old Wandering America website will disappear come January as we are not going to renew the host service or maintain the domain name.  We haven’t updated the website since January of 2010 since we are now using the Wandering America Blog instead.  Just letting you know in case you are interested in taking a last look at the web site before it goes away.

May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. (I Thessalonians 5:28)


  1. I love each pictures personality. Josiah is totally suspicious. Radek- So great! Lola and Rocco totally hoping Santa didn't recall the last few days. And Briana... well, we just love Briana.

  2. Nice looking decorations ... And better looking grand kids. Enjoy the season!
