Away in a Manger No Crib for a Bed

Be near me Lord Jesus
I ask thee to Stay

Close by me forever
and love me I pray
Bless all the dear Children
In THY tender care

And take us to heaven
to live with thee there

Beautiful pictures, Kelly and Harper!

Can I comment belatedly on your "Into Everything" entry? I've got seven kids and if I tried to child-proof I'd be going crazy. You really just have to teach them "no"! Yes, a child under the age of one is perfectly capable of understanding this. (mine are living proof!) Then you can be at peace and they learn to obey and you can be more relaxed - even when you got to someone else's home!

I have been struggling with some things and this blog always helps me put things in perspective. Thank you for sharing your life with me and your wal with Christ. You are a blessing to me. I am thankful that God has put you in my life even though I don't know you personally, I feel like I do. So thank you.

Girl with the Curlz said...

So cute!! Where did you get Harper's adorable dress?

Amanda said...

So pretty! (Both of you!)

Susan said...

Kelly, I am a longtime reader, but never comment. :) I will start, I promise! I don't believe for one second you are "pushing 40"...there's just no way!

And yes, I totally recommend using the cabinet locks. We have the ones that you mount inside the cabinets/drawers and you just press down. We did have a few of the kind that went over the handles or knobs, but our toddlers quickly figured them out!

Good luck! :)

Mary said...

So cute! Both of you!

Megan said...

absolutely adorable outfits! so precious!

Donna said...

Harper is the cutest present under the tree! Adorable outfit. And Kelly, you look great. If Scott was in the pic you would have your Christmas card. Or at least another picture worthy of being on the frig. Ha.
Keeping you in my heart in Ga.

Kelly, I have only commented once or twice but follow your blog daily! I have to get my Harper and Kelly fix! Anyway this is an unrelated post, but I wanted you to know that our family is from eastern NC and are die hard ECU fans just like you are a Razorback fan! Well, when we won the title of conferene champs on Sat. and found out we were playing the Arkansas Razorbacks in the Liberty Bowl, I immedialtely thought about you! How exciting!!!!!!!!! Will you be going to the game? We are trying to work it out to go, because of how much we love our Pirates, but secondly, I would love to meet up with you to meet you in person if you are able to slip away from Miss Harper for the day! Anyway I wanted you to know, regardless if either of us go, you will have a blogger friend who is inspired by you and we will have something in common on Jan 2nd @ The Liberty Bowl! We both love our teams, our God and hopefully you will be happy for us if we pull out the win, just as I will be happy for you if you win!

Harper is just the cutest thing I have ever seen and I think she is starting to look alot like you..well @ least some! Glad you got your house all decorated and love your trees!

Because of you, our family is giving more to charities this year instead of gifts!!!!!!!! I have shared you with my family and now they are hooked on your blog, your love for Christ and just your down home ways of your life! I think you are an awesome person and have so much to offer!

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Holiday season!

Nancy Lee.......GO ECU!
