My 100 Joys: 87-100

The last of my 100 joys: Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and beyond!

87 - Baking a birthday cake for Jesus

88 - Spending a few minutes with my best friend and her sister...received some much-needed encouragement

89 - Rushing up the street to Santa on the firetruck (he was actually close to being on-time this year! We weren't expecting him so early!)

90 - An evening with Mark's family...celebrating Christmas with Granny and Pop, then with mother-and-father-in-law (MIL like the gift I picked out for her...score!)

91 - Staying up until 1:30 am to make sure my children's faces were full of surprise the following morning

92 - My girls' faces on Christmas morning!

93 - Snow on Christmas day...a first-ever experience for the state of Alabama!

94 - Christmas with my family (although we missed my oldest sister and her family due to circumstances beyond their control)

95 - Christmas evening at home...ah!..relaxation!

96 - Staying in my pjs ALL day the day after Christmas! My bff and her kids came over and ate breakfast. We went to her house (with her sick husband, and all) and ate pizza for dinner. What a wonderfully lazy day! snowed ALL day!

97 - Sleeping til 10am on Monday morning...I haven't done that in about 10 years!

98 - Eating lots and lots of Christmas left-overs

99 - My hubby being off work ALL week!! RARE!!!

100 - Celebraing the season because a King humbly came to extend grace and mercy to all, including me!

Bonus - I found 100 joys to celebrate during this Christmas season!!!!!!


  1. Hi Rebekah,
    You have so much to be joyful for, and much to celebrate. I enjoyed reading your words of joy, seeing your lovely, happy girls, and meeting you. We had a foot of snow here in NC this Monday. My daughter got a new camera, and took lots of great shots - which I will post soon on my blog.
    So glad I discovered your lovely site here at The Homeschool Village.
    Hope you'll swing by and visit me too. Company is always welcome at my place:)
    Happy New Year!

  2. Debra,
    Thank you for your kind words! I'm so jealous of your foot of snow! My nephew and niece live in NC, and just returned home from California to see the snow still remaining.

    At first glance, I'm enjoying your blog! I'll be sure to take some time after the holidays to read more of your posts.
