A Break Is Coming...So Ready!!!!

Christ-mas greeting everyone. I LOVE this time of year, the beautiful lights and decorations, the makings of new family memories, awesome food (old favorites along with a chance to try a new recipe). But most of all, this season brings to my mind the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Emmanuel "God with us" what A LOVE the Father showered on us through sending his only Son, Jesus Christ, to earth to die for us. He came in the most fragile form of human life and God protected HIM and through Jesus' obedience and willingness to lay down his life for us, God's plan for our redemption came to pass....Victory is ours through Jesus Christ!!!! No matter what this world goes through or how much selfishness and confusion there seems to be right now...God protects his plans and his will, Jesus paid the price and the VICTORY has been won. This life with all it's problems and turmoil will soon pass away and if we believe in Jesus Christ and except him as our Savior...we will live in Heaven where we will walk the streets of gold and be in peace that passes all understand while sitting at the feet of Jesus forever....sounds sooooo good to me!!!!

So for me, Merry Christmas has taken on a new meaning this year.....I choose to say Merry Christ-mas because it seems that this world is trying to take Christ out of Christmas....but as for me and my house, we shall serve the LORD and Christ will never be taken out of Christmas for us!!!!!

HOUSE PROGRESS
***********

Our house is finally starting to look like a home instead of work in progress. Brent has been working like a dog every time we go home trying to finish up the things we have left to do before we can starting moving stuff in.

Last week, he took a week's vacation and stayed in Spooner to tile the shower and also tile around our tub and trim around the windows. The shower ended up being more of a job then he thought it would be, so he spent most of the week working on that. We both are very happy with how it turned out. This weekend, he is hoping to finish trimming the windows and hopefully put down some base board trim also.

Brent washing down the shower after he finished grouting it...what a job this shower was!!!!

This is pretty much the way I saw him for days....his feet sticking out of the shower while he worked on it.....what a trooper his is. I don't think there would have been anything left of my knees if I was the one doing this....thanks sweetie, for ALL YOUR HARD WORK!!!!


They came and installed the granite counter tops last week also.....LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them!!!!

A view of our island...beautiful. Can't wait to start decorating my kitchen:)

We left the cardboard down on the floor for now until the plumber and electrician get done...but when we are able to pick up the cardboard and get everything cleaned up..... this kitchen is going to be stunning!!!

A close look at the granite....it's everything I was hoping for.

And last but not least....they finished rocking our fireplace last weekend...LOVE this too and can hardly wait to have a fire in it and sit and enjoy all our hard work.


Well, I better get ready for school.....Monday Dec. 20th is my last day and then I have a whole month off and I AM SO READY, I need this break!!!! I miss working on my prims and cooking for my husband. Brent has pretty much been doing all the cooking and laundry while I sit at night and do homework, I am such a blessed woman to have such a supportive husband but I am excited to give him a break for awhile.

Merry Christ-mas Everyone!!!!! Rhonda
