Once in Royal David's City

Hello everyone! I was able to attend our church's Christmas cantata this year! My back was very sore towards the end but it was nice to be there. 



Justin dressed as Caesar. A lady in the church made everyone's costumes and she did a gorgeous job!

The beginning of the Nativity story.

Angels and the shepherds.

Justin as King Herod

The Wise Men with King Herod and later visiting the child Jesus

The children's choir did an awesome job! The little girl in the red dress has the cutest little singing voice.

Justin also sang a solo piece.

The choir sang beautifully.

My in-laws singing with another couple. It is so great to see my father-in-law up and walking. The healing from the back surgery has been going well for him. I am so happy he is well enough to enjoy Christmas celebrations! 



I hope you all have a great week as you finish up all the Christmas preparations. May all your cookies turn out perfect, your travels be safe and your Christmas a happy day!

Love, Rebecca

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year-
 Pentatonix

Christmas is just a few days away now! We enjoyed a Christmas party at our friend's home this weekend. 
It was so nice to go to a Christmas party this year. Around this time last year I was dealing with so much pain from the back injury and we had to miss several Christmas events. My back is still a struggle to deal with but the pain is considerably less now then it was last year.

Their home was decorated so cute and the tree was so gorgeous! 

Justin baked some awesome cookies to bring to the party. I'm so blessed to have a husband who loves to cook! 

Playing "Heads Up!" It is such an awesome party game and I really enjoyed it. 

My husband's cousin Joe playing with Lily.

A very adorable red velvet mini cupcake. It was as delicious as it was cute! 

The wonderful party hosts! 

Jess is expecting a bundle of joy this coming summer. Her little baby bump is just too cute! 


Have a great weekend! Love Rebecca

Angels We Have Heard on High

Angels We Have Heard on High - The Piano Guys, Peter Hollens and David Archuleta

Hello Readers! Christmas is less than a week away and I can't wait to celebrate with my husband and our families.

I was browsing through my old photos the other day and found some cute pictures from Christmases of my childhood. I hope you enjoy them!


My first Christmas!








I was an angel in the church's Christmas play that year. My mom made my costume. Collin wanted to dress up too!








With my cousin's on my mom's side.




My first Christmas party at the college.

Oh and I just happened to be at a party where Darth Vader appeared...

Christmas memories are the best! 


Love Rebecca

Sarah's Bridal Shower

video

My brother's fiancee had her bridal shower this past weekend. It was a fun and exciting event! We had good food and some great laughs. The video above is of Sarah opening one of her gifts. She received two toasters and Caleb had a hilarious opinion on what she should do with the extra toaster!  


The cake was supposed to have a more pink colored frosting...but it was still delicious!

The gift table was covered with presents.

The bride-to-be arrives!

Katelyn taking a photo with Sarah! The photo she took is in the corner. How cute?
Katelyn's video about the shower can be seen here.

Caleb, Sarah and Rebekah.

Cousins!

The guests. We had a wonderful turnout!

The pastor's wife gave the devotional. This little Christmas house was a gift from her and another lady in the church to start off Sarah's christmas decor.

One of the cute little cakes.

Preparing to open gifts. I put all the photos together below!









A great big basket of snowman decor and home items. Very cute!

Caleb was a big helper and gave Sarah all the gifts from the table. He did an awesome job!

My sister and our cousin Madison watching the present opening.

Madison and Aunt Elaine

Cutest cousins ever!

After the shower and all the cleanup we brought the gifts the apartment of the future newlyweds!

It was quite packed with all the kids and gifts! It is a cute little apartment and I bet they can hardly wait to start their life together!

***************************************************************************



Justin and I put together a bunch of these jars as centerpieces for Sarah and Collin's wedding. I saw a similar idea on pinterest. We found the burlap, lace, ribbon and twine at Walmart, the flowers are from Afloral.com and the mason jars are from my husband's mom. We hot glued the burlap and lace and tied the ribbon. It's not as perfect as little old picky me would like but Sarah and Collin loved them so I'm happy!

Oh and I pin some awesome stuff on my boards so you should follow me :)
If you want... lol


Love, Rebecca
