It's All Over but the Shoutin'!

  • The stockings are stuffed; gifts are wrapped.  It's all over but the shoutin'!  
  • Tonight is our Candlelight Service at church.
  • Tomorrow we'll spend a quiet day with my mother and father and sister and her family.  We'll have soup and grilled cheese sandwiches and play a LOT of table games.
  • Sunday after church, our three children and eight grandchildren will arrive.  That's when the SHOUTIN' begins!


  1. Your gifts are beautiful in that little red wagon Rebecca. Have a wonderful joyful Christmas with all of your family.

  2. Tonight is our vespers service as well. I love your creative packages--no such wonderful artistry with mine.

    Enjoy all the time with your family. The immediate Gisel family is getting together on Saturday--that's when Amy and I present our secret project! It's been fun.

    Blessing and peace from the Prince of Peace. Donna

  3. Sounds like a blessed Christmas Day is in store...enjoy your family and God bless....

  4. Merry Christmas (and a Happy Birthday!). Love the ornaments on the packages.


  5. Merry Christmas, dearest Rebecca...and much joy to you and your family!!! With much love, Janine XO

  6. Wishing you a lovely and Blessed Christmas Rebecca. Love Di

  7. Mine will begin somewhere along 9:00 PM tomorrow night... when the kids are down for the night and the revelry finished. Perhaps, then, I'll be more inclined to a silent pause and inward shout. Right now, I've got to get four children, plus myself, ready for church and some quick dinner.

    Looking for Peace in the midst of it all...

    Enjoy your evening and day tomorrow!

    Merry Christmas.


  8. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
    Love the red wagon full of presents :)
    Much Love, Jerelene

  9. Jerelene, Merry Christmas to you. I got over to your blog and saw your Christmas post (it was lovely, by the way) but I couldn't leave a message. I felt so bad, because I wanted to let you know I've missed you and am glad to see you back. I'm sure hoping either you check back here - or that one of our mutual friends will let you know I'm trying :)
