Yesterday Worker Man called and told me to stop by his parent's house before heading to The Taj to work.  He said FMIL had a surprise for me.

So I get there and walk up to our bedroom and I see this sitting in the floor.

Apparently I was so excited I was....shaking??  How did I not notice the picture was this blurry?

There was a note attached that said this:

"May HIS humble beginnings always remind you:  It's not the's the lives lived IN the home that makes a difference".

Seriously, is that not amazing?
And so true. 
Our humble Taj will produce so many amazing memories and I can't wait!

It's the stable for my Willow Tree set that FMIL started for me last year:

This is the full set that I'm working towards!  I already have Mary [and Jesus], Joeseph, the shephard, the donkey and the lamb.

I am so blessed.


  1. This made me tear up! That set is so beautiful and what a beautiful message and suprise! Love it! Happy Friday!!!

  2. The message is spot on! are blessed in so many ways!

    Sounds like you're well on your way to having a complete set!

  3. Proud of both of you for all your hard work!
