Hello, My name is Ester. I absolutley adore Jesus! He is the center of my life. I am nothing without him. He has allowed a dream of mine to come true. I've always wanted a little boutique. I've been praying for the right time, the time is now! I am the mother of 3. I love my children, they keep life so exciting. I homeschool and I have one in traditional school. I love to craft, it could be a full time job. I love it that much. I like sewing, baking, bow- making, and all things family! I am married to my highschool sweetheart, you can read about that on my other blog. www.loveinmyhouse.blogspot.com.

Sugar Cookies!

We were iced in today.  Church was cancelled, so I filled my day doing thing I usually don't have time to do.  I started the day with making some black berry butter.  I've been in love with it since the first time I had it at my friend Jennifer's house.  You can find the recipe on her blog The Lazy Daisy Kitchen. Jennifer is an amazing lady who cooks really well!!!  Here is my journey to black berry butter:

Four sticks of butter!

1/8 cup of honey (as you can see, I didn't measure.  I just eyed it.)

The last step, add a half cup of black berry and mix until you reach desired look!!

I put it in a little mason jar and there you have it!! (I had enough to put some in the freezer).
I also had time to make some sugar cookies!  I love Christmas sugar cookies, in fact I only like sugar cookies at Christmas time. I like the way mine turned out except I was talking and forgot to color the piping before icing the cookies. 

Well, I am good and tired now!! But I have sugar cookies!!

There is a whole lot of crafting going on!! ( I love Christmas)!!!

It's the MOST wonderful time of the year!! Remember Christ our Savior!! Joy to the World!!! Oh, yes Baby it's Cold outside!! I love, love, this time of year.  I love to decorate for my children's birthday, it's probably my second favorite thing.  So you know I have to go ALL out (southern style) when it comes to my Savior Birthday!! I really wanted to put the tree up before Thanksgiving but, I waited.  I was so excited to wake up on Friday, I went straight to Lowe's for my tree.  I have a confession, the children have tree's in their room and I also have one in the den and a table top in the dining room. 

 I've made first ever mesh wreath. 

Ok, I have gotten a lot of flack about the B-S, I didn't think about it before I painted it on the Snowman.  The B- is for my last name (maiden name) and the S- is the family last name.  I've learned my lesson.  
I wanted a chevron table runner. Of course I couldn't find what I wanted so I made one!!

Yep, I did that today!
We have a real fireplace but it's in the den.  I wanted to hang our stockings in the living room close to the "real" tree.  So I hung them on my faux mantle.

This is not the best picture, but you get the idea!!
Last on my Jesus birthday house tour is our Jesse tree ornaments.  I am using my little table top tree for all of the Jesse tree ornaments. 

These are my ornaments in the making.  I used a link from Faithful Provision.  My children are enjoying our Jesse tree scripture readings each night.  I will post more about that later. 
I love the fullness of the month, seeing friends that I don't see often, seeing my children sing praises to God at our Christmas program (church), the decorations and THE CHRISTMAS COOKIES!!
