Christmas Draws Nigh

As Christmas draws nigh, our days have been filled with so many warm, delightful, and busy events happening in our Ramsey household. My camera and I have been very busy. :) But Emma has been even busier with Christmas sewing projects!  Thus, as to not completely neglect you dear friends, she persuaded me to share with you all my photos from our whirling days!  Rather timidly, I am attempting a post without my Emma who always seems to compliment my photos perfectly with her words...  

December in the Ramsey household is the season for...  

Baking cookies...
With Sarah Anne! =)
Cooking yummy meals together to serve around a full table...
Pulling out so many wonderful Christmas boxes!
Setting up our Willow Tree nativiy
Wearing RED scarves!

Making many wonderful pies...

Playing games with Grandma Pearl

Stringing lights with James....

Adorning the Christmas tree with so many colorful ornaments.

Putting on warm, red mittens. :-)
Curling Sarah Anne's hair...

Hanging angels and fairies on Mom's beautiful Angel Tree
... Celebrating His birth...
Merry Christmas from the Ramseys!!!

May you continually overflow with His wonderful joy and peace in the coming year,

hello dearie! =)
Yes, we're still in Tennessee, but we leave tomorrow (January 1st!). I'm still working on a small Christmas present for you, and I'm very sorry it's going to be late! =P
We had a wonderful Christmas, and from your email I can see that y'all did too, for which I am very grateful. =)
I'll talk to you soon, Jo!
love you so much!

Love this. Love the portrait. Love it. And I am AHHmazingly jealous of people who can wear flipflops so close to Christmas. I love warm weather, but unfortunately Illinois is not suffering from global warming. Hope you had an ever SO lovely Christmas and have a Happy New Year!
