It's been a while

It has been a while since we took a family photo at Christmas.

Oh sure we have had lots of pictures taken
kids opening gifts
hubby and I opening gifts
the Christmas tree
the gifts wrapped
the manger
all the snowmen I collect.

But not a picture of  our little family.

This one was taken in 2008. We still had our Molly and our boys were so young.

Now we are all a little order.
The boys and my hubby are still handsome.
My hair as grown out really long I am seeing.
Justin wears glasses now and Damian is working out alot.

Also our most recent picture was taken with a cell phone. Phooey!
Not as good as hubby's camera that wasn't charged.

I am very Thankful for my family. The Lord has trusted me with our boys and has given me a pretty awesome hubby.

January Giveaway

UPDATE: I corrected the date on my giveaway!!
Thank you for letting me know :)

Good Sunday Morning Bloggers.

I sit in a bit of a chilly house this morning.
Arizona has been really chilly this past week.

From what I can tell we have been more cold than yall that live out East.

It is currently 37 degrees outside and for me that is COLD!

We have been dipping down into the low 30's at night 
so I have had to turn up the heat a little bit here to keep warm.

Northern Arizona where the mountains are has been
getting some great snow!

I found a saying via Pinterest and I fell in love with it.

It so speaks to my heart.

In this life we go through trials and if we did not, we would not find our strength.
The strength that comes from knowing a merciful God.

This will be the first of many giveaways in 2016.

All you have to do to win is leave me a comment. 
Share if you would like but it is not required to win.

Thanks so much for following Cynzplace!

You never know

You never know who may stumble upon your blog.
Someone who needs and encouraging word.
Someone who needs a quick how do you make that sauce?
Someone looking for some wonderful hand made goodies.
Someone who can't sleep and just wants to know you are there.

For me blogging is connecting with others. Hopefully bring some light and love into the lives.

Thought I would share this picture.

This is my mom, Me, my little brother and Santa also known as my Grandpa.

Christmas for me as a child was always wonderful.
I come from a large family with lots of cousins!

My Grandpa dressed up as Santa every single year. Always came in jingling his large sleigh bells.
Such a beautiful sound.

This picture was probably taken I would say around 1975 or 1976.
One of the ones that slipped through and didn't get a year on it.

I am blessed to have old memories like this.
