After taking down the Christmas tree, I was really excited to decorate the entry.
You see, 8 years ago, we inherited a grandfather clock when my husband's mom passed. It's a nice clock, but it really didn't fit into our decor. Over the years, I have tried to decorate around the area to make it less formal. My husband was not that fond of the actual clock, but was holding onto memories of his mom through the clock. He decided before Christmas that it was time to give the clock to his brother. His brother has more of a formal house and the scale of the clock fits so much better there.
I found a before of the entry - this was 3 years ago. My more recent pictures somehow got corrupt on my hard drive. My walls have been painted since then, the sunflowers and the painting at the top of the stairs have not been there for a long time.
Ahhh, I feel like I can breathe now. The entry is so much more relaxed now. I will continue to tweak this area, and move things around.
On another note, I caught this guy praying several times over the course of the Broncos game:
Faith has to start somewhere, right? And what a great role model we have in Tim Tebow for young athletes:
I'm always telling my kids that sports, in the end, is just a game, but that God uses it as a tool to make Himself known.
The verse John 3:16 is one of Tim Tebow's favorite verses.
He passed for 316 yards, and passed for 31.6 yards per completion yesterday. What are the odds?
I don't know much about football, and didn't watch much until recently. But this is cool.
I'm trying to get organized today. It's the first real day of the new year for me. So far, not a great start. I slept in, did not work out, or take a shower yet. I will use this day as a planning and organizing day. Since I'm not organized yet, this post is a random bit of what we did over Christmas break.
This is all that remains of our Christmas decor (yes, I know I need to sweep. I'm adding it to the list):
The cards usually stay up for the month of January as we have a few Happy New Year cards that trickle in.
Christmas day was spent playing out in the snow:
We watched waaaayyy too much football over the last 2 weeks.
It freaks me out when she does this with her eyes:
Okay, now I'm going to get my work-out in and try to salvage what's left of this day. :) Have a great day!
