It's the Most WONDERFUL Time of the Year!

September starts the best time of the year for me. I love from the first day of fall, clear up until Christmas time. The colors, smells, special traditions, new traditions..... just everything that encompasses this time of year is what makes it my absolute favorite!

The colors.... so beautiful. Isn't God's work

Football season, baby! I bleed

Time to break out the quilts from the cedar chest.
Boy, do I love the smell the cedar chest gives my

Once again, look at those amazing colors!

Choosing pumpkins and gourds to decorate the house
with is so much fun!

Succulent turkey, mouth watering stuffing, mashed
potatoes, rich gravy, pumpkin pie.... mmmmm my mouth is
watering already!

Then, we head in to winter... I love seeing
snowflakes fall to the ground, or stick to the
windows... always a beautiful sight

Can't forget the lights that sparkle, and brighten
up the chilliest night!

I love sharing presents with my family. I search
and search to find the present that fits each
individual family memeber. Watching their
faces light up is priceless.

And, the real, most wonderful reason to culminate
this wonderful time of year. The birth of our Lord
and Savior, Jesus Christ. I love going to church, lighting
candles, singing hymns... all to honor Him, and show
Him my love and gratitude for saving my life.

When is your favorite time of the year, and why??
