A Hunting We Will Go

Hello Monday and all of your mercies!

We crammed our weekend full to overflowing with celebrating a certain little girl who recently turned five, and our annual tradition of pumpkin pancakes and tree hunting merriment. Fun all around.

I am lucky to have married a man who LOVES Christmas. We are celebrating our tenth married Christmas this year, and we have some wonderful traditions:

We start in November with getting matching Christmas PJs for the girls, four personalized stockings hung by the chimney, pumpkin pancakes before tree hunting, and the list goes on. We love Christmas as both a time to focus on Jesus, and a time to be together, make memories as a family and to enjoy the wonder of the season.

Yesterday we hunted for the perfect tree, but everyday I want to remember to hunt for the beauty around me, to sniff out the graces, and to give thanks for every gift, large and small.

{Want to hunt graces with me today?}
