The Seeker

The Seeker
A seeker went exploring
to find happiness and love.
He sought them in the city
and in the hills above.
He traveled many a highway,
asked many a passerby,
"Where's the path to happiness?"
And this was their reply,
"We're also on a journey
seeking just like you,
but these gifts of love and happiness
are found by very few."
Then he met a shepherd
whose countenance shown bright--
"Can you tell me," asked the seeker,
"how your face took on this light?"
"It came as I stood gazing
at a Babe upon the hay.
God's gift of love and happiness
abides with us today!"

So I had to stop by my former townhouse this week to pick up some stray mail...
The new owners recarpeted and put in new wood floors and painted.

These are the stairs. Used to be a super light cream carpet and an old wood floor at the entrance. the dark wood kind of shows at the entrance and this is the new carpet they put in. So nice!

This is the old cream carpet (YUCK! Such a pain to keep clean!) and all the photos and stuff I had around the fireplace. Too much clutter. But it was important stuff on my mantel-family photos etc.

And here is the newly painted former townhouse of mine. And the wood floor they extended into the dining room and of course they have new carpet which looks so nice.

So there you have it. The new owners did a great job. I didn't see in the kitchen. Wish I had asked to see it. But for now it looked like the kitchen cupboards are the same. I assume they got all new appliances.

Family is the best.

I am a proud aunt. And this isn't even all of them. Great photos, Deb!

Karen's boys.

Deb's kids.

And I even nabbed a photo of Jenna from Jerri's FB page. She was in the Nutcracker.

The ABC Girls

A is for Amy, B is for Beth, and C is for Claudia. They live in my neighborhood. Oh to be so cute.

A Couple and an Elf and a Thought.

Two projects I got finished this weekend...

A co-worker's parents.

...and a silly little "crunchy" elf drawing for a little handout treat thing at work. 
Now to get working on wrapping presents and miscellaneous things this week. Christmas is in 8 days after all!!!

Merry Christmas. Amidst the brightly wrapped packages and ribbons and bows, may we remember our Savior always. And all that we have been given.

3 Brothers

A drawing I did of my 3 brothers. They are older now of course and were never the same age at the same time. Hah- I realized I put the unfinished drawing here. Ah well. You get the idea.


Ta da! It is 12-12-12 today! It seems like it should be a magical day for some reason.
