Christmas Giveaways!!!

Let us give according to our incomes,
lest God make our incomes match our gifts.
Peter Marshall

Wrapped gifts are just one way of giving at Christmas.
My prayer for our family this Christmas is,
that we focus on giving of ourselves to others in time and love.
What better way to celebrate the birth of the ultimate gift,

So let each one give as he purposes in his heart,
not grudgingly or of necessity;
for God loves a cheerful giver.
2 Corinthians 9:7

Lets talk about Christmas...


Can you believe Christmas is just around the corner?!?!

Well, that's what I keep hearing people say....

Ya, know this is my first Christmas which makes me pretty excited....

I giggle and smile when I hear talk of Christmas, and see the traditions that my family have to celebrate Christmas.....

I just know it's the most wonderful time of the year!

BUT, then there are the moments when I look like this.......

This is the look I get when I hear that one of our family traditions hasn't happened yet, it's the Christmas blog giveaways!!!!

I can't talk yet, all I can do is give my Mama and big sisters this look! It's the look of, have ya'll forgotten the gift of blog giving tradition?

Well, no need to worry anymore, the news I'm about to share put a smile on my face....

I overheard my Mama and big sisters talking of the Christmas giveaway.

So, keep your eyes wide open because it's coming TOMORROW!!!

I really think you will like the things they made :)

Until the next time we chat I hope each of you has a blessed Christmas season. And as my Daddy always says we need to continually reflect on the true meaning behind CHRISTmas...and that is CHRIST!

For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
Luke 2:11

On this day...

8 years ago.....
December 1, 2003

Arthur began his first leg of his battle with cancer,
this was the day he had colon surgery.
This was the day the head of our family took a step in the direction of the unknown?!?!

Arthur was prayed up, leaning on the Great Physician to guide the hands of his earthly surgeon, his faith never faltered, and he held my hand before surgery always being the rock and encouraging me.
We had one last kiss and he was wheeled away......

I once again began to plead with the Lord...

"Please Lord hold my best friend, love, husband, father of our children in the palm of your hand. Heal him Lord and restore him, that he may be able to continue to serve you...spare him Lord, Please"!

The Lord heard my prayers...
prayers of those who knew Arthur

prayers of those who never knew him, they just knew his name...

Oh how the body of believers lifted Arthur and our family up to the Lord,
and in the days/months that followed....

We felt the Lord's hands carry us....
We saw HIM touch Arthur's tired body...
We experienced the love of Christ in others that words cannot explain....
All because of the power of prayer, and God's amazing grace.....


Now 8 years later..........

I still have my best friend, love, husband, and father of our children...
I never go a day without being thankful to our Heavenly Father!


They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
Psalm 126:5

Just for the record.....

Because there is a rumor floating around I thought I would post here to set things straight.....

I am not pregnant....

Now that is not to say we wouldn't "love & welcome" another baby blessing. We would feel blessed beyond measure to be adding another addition to our family. But for now the only baby in the Munck house is this sweet little girl.....

Picture taken last week in Florida,
thanks Mrs. Victoria for the dress:)

Children are a heritage of the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Psalm 127:3

Memories Monday: Our trip to Germany

OK, so we didn't really go to Germany. In August we really took a day trip into the mountains of Georgia, to a little spot known for looking like Germany....

Helen, Georgia

In the late 1960’s, Helen was revitalized from a remote mountain community into a replica of a quaint Alpine Village located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

We have visited Helen, GA many times and we always enjoy taking in the little German town...only a couple of hours from our home, a mini vacation.

On our way to Helen, Ga we passed by this place...

Goats on the Roof

This was truly a sight to see, well if your city folk ;)

You can see more pictures of them at this YouTube link

The model railroad museum was our next stop.....

Charlemagne's Kingdom
you can see more here

It was amazing all the tiny details, truly nothing was overlooked. We spent almost 2 hours there watching the trains pass by, it was fascinating to see all the locations, events, and imagination that went into this display.

This was a replica of Neuschwanstein Castle, the history behind this famous castle is so interesting and you often see it used in books and magazines.

You can see one of the trains going through in this picture.

These are just a few of the pictures we took while touring, you can see more HERE on there web site!

We had a great little day trip here. It was very hot that day so we ended our trip at the frozen yogurt shop :)

Our Millennium Boy turned 11!!!

Last Saturday were very thankful to have all of James birthday party supplies with us, so there were no worries when the van broke down. This way we were ready on Saturday evening to decorate for his birthday on Sunday!

James was our Millennium Baby born

NOVEMBER 13, 2000

James woke up to a party!!!!!


Breakfast started with a treat, Duncan Donuts...YUM!!!!

James is a Dog Lover, so a doggie theme was perfect for him!

Great that James loves dogs so much since our family business is all about dogs! If James could he would bring all his 4 legged friends home each night from our store. James can often be found curled up with one of the dogs in the floor, on a pillow, or even in a kennel :)

Short bread bone shaped cookies...

James chose to open his presents after breakfast.....

James was "Top Dog" for the day, and spent most of his birthday swimming!

The Dinner Menu:

*Grilled Cajun Chicken
*Green Beans
*Au Gratin Potatoes

*Lemon cupcakes with cream cheese icing and strawberry ice cream

( cupcakes and ice cream and photo taken after lots of swimming and a few were already in jammies)




We pray this year brings you much growth in mind and body, for the Lord has great things for you.

James had a "woofing" good birthday!

Blessed are the peace makers: for they shall be called children of God.
Matthew 5:9
