Well, at least I never told you I would be a faithful blogger. :)

We have been busy with life in general. Work, school, and church. That's what we do. But lately, we've been mixing in a little Christmassing around here at the Murphy house. 

Like making Christmas goodies.

We've been hanging stockings on the banister with care. Ours and the dogs, of course.

 Decking our halls, and whatnot.

Love our Christmas tree! 

 My grandma made this years ago, and I always remember it being on the top of her tree growing up. She has a small tree, now, so she gave me this! I think it's so cute. :)

 Here's the dining table all decked out, too! 

I think that's a cheese tray, right? I got it at the thrift store for like $2 I think! 
Anyway. I don't use it for cheese. I use it for pine cones. And I like it.

Nativity set made by my wonderful Mother-in-Law. There are a ton more pieces, too! I just have room right now for the main people. Maybe next year we can put all of the pieces out!

 Merry Christmas, from us! I hope you all have a blessed holiday season, remembering what this is really all about! 


  1. Hi, I love your Christmas-tree, it is so nice to have one already. In germany we will have one on dezember the 24th first - such a pitty! Your main figures from the manger-scene are so beautyful! I just started collecting these Nativity sets. I just have two, but I love them!
    I´m one of your followers -by the way :-)

    Love Mirja

  2. Your decorating skills shine through AGAIN. Hey, what time should I come by for the goodies? Haha!

    Like Mirja, I too am a follower -- have been for years. Although so many of us have met through blogs, we will never have the chance to meet face-to-face, but regardless, we are bonded together through God's gift of the Baby Jesus. And this Christmas, I wish the Murphy family abundant peace and joy and good health to allow you to realize a blessed 2013.


  3. Merry merry Christmas to you!

  4. I like your table decor. I'd put my pine cones in a cheese dish too.
