I Wonder…

I wonder as I wander out under the sky,
How Jesus, the Savior, did come for to die.
For poor, ornery people like you and like I
I wonder as I wander
Out under the sky.


Christmas is a time of wonder and joy.


This old house has been decked for this most wonderful time of year.




Our Christmas goodies are a combination of old and new. These mugs are from the late 80’s.


The kissing Santa and Mrs. Santa are from my MIL’s stash and are probably from the 50’s, made in Japan.


The Christmas angels and little girl bell are more old Christmas treasures from Dear’s mother.


Our humble entry, inside and out.



The living room with our fireplace. We are still talking about adding a mantle in the future.


This wooden nativity was purchased at Disneyland and is a set that I bought that could be handled and enjoyed by our kids when they were toddlers.


This rocker rocked all three of our children when they were babes.


The nativity is a more recent acquisition but the angel trio are from my MIL’s Christmas collection.




We have a new daughter in law this year so I decided to buy new stockings for our family of eight.


Waiting for some wonderful times of sipping away with friends and family.


Hoping for a most wonderful Christmas for all my friends in bloggy world.

Next post will reveal our sparsely decorated Charlie Brown Free Range Christmas tree.

I’m linking up to ABC Wednesday for W is for Wonder, Wonderful, Wooden, Waiting, and World.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage on their site. All my photos that I stored and uploaded from that site are now big ugly black and grey boxes with a message to pay big bucks to get them restored to my blog. It will take me a long time to restore thousands of posts.

  1. Your house and decorations are beautiful! I have a rocker almost exactly like yours, and I rocked my son in it. Looking forward to seeing your Christmas tree reveal.

  2. I have a similar rocking chair, Ellen that rocked my two babies. My duaghter-in-law and daughter wanted new ones that were more padded and chair like so it was not handed down to them. I’m thinking it will someday be my “old lady” rocking chair–lol! Your home looks lovely–enjoy!
