Thank you for spreading the Christmas cheer and sharing such great ideas to ensure we too are embracing the most wonderful time of the year and preparing our hearts for our Saviors birth!

Preparing my family to welcome and receive Christ at Christmas…

UPDATE: A quick update because I originally shared this post 9 years ago;)—I *just* got this SWEET book in the mail that was just published in 2015 called “Our Family’s Jesse Tree”. You can purchase it on Amazon at It’s a GREAT price and it comes with templates for all 25 ornaments, an opening activity, scripture […]

Thanks for the links! I have friends who have made them, but I haven't gotten around to doing it. Buying it all made up sounds much better!

HA HA!!! Man…I got a new phone and I can barely figure out how to dial the dumb thing…let alone text with it 🙂

Have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving!! Let's touch base next week when we get some new numbers 🙂

Kristi J - November 24, 2009 - 9:56 pm

hilarious…I still can't text yet…I'm way too slow 🙂 kj

This is hilarious! I saw someone doing that the other day, driving 10 miles an hour, and it drove me nuts! 🙂

Momma bought your crib today!

I went ahead and did the inevitable…and bought a crib for our little one since Mr.Frank has at least another year and a half or two in his (he just turned 1 two weeks ago)! Finding one that would work was a bit tricky because I needed the crib to be under 40 inches in height for […]

That is a GREAT crib. Love it!

and paint color is totally important–I am right there with you 🙂

I remember how excited I was the day we got our crib for Isaiah =) How fun! And thanks for sharing about the colors…I'm a first time mom so I was excited to see that my color choice, light blue, was in the calm category. You'll have to share a picture when you've got his cozy room ready!

I've been thinking a lot about painting my son's room a light blue. When I was pregnant with him we were remodeling THE ENTIRE HOUSE and I was so sick of painting at that point. We painted it beige before we knew he was a boy. But, I think I'm ready for a change now! You're right about setting the mood though! =)

Our master bedroom is a pale mint green and the curtains and bedding are all white … it's so light and airy! I never have any trouble falling asleep and relaxing with a book – now I know why!!

We're planning on doing our nursery with simple solids too (though I love pattern too) … and I think we want to continue the muted, pale green

Thanks for all the color info! 🙂

Kelley Brown - November 24, 2009 - 1:49 pm

You have such great insight on decor. 🙂 By the way, your last comment to me meant so much…I love how you "get it" and know exactly the emotions I feel. Thanks for validating my thoughts! 🙂 Any more updates for ya'll?

Jenn - November 24, 2009 - 2:54 pm

uh…so you're saying my mod polka dots might be a bit too much huh?? ha! oh well…I am a pattern kind of gal. nothing in my house is serene and quiet! although Frank's nursery is beautiful!! And I LOVE the new crib! I think it is a good mix of modern and classic with the dark wood!!


Sam - November 25, 2009 - 3:56 pm

I love Frank's room. It's so precious. The new crib is beautiful.

This makes me feel more confident about choosing lilac and sage for our LO's nursery! Hopefully those colors will balance out the black and white damask, stripes, and polka dots . . . . 🙂
