I've become addicted to Beverly Lewis' books. First of all, I love reading about the Amish. The lifestyle appeals to me- simplicity and all. Anyway, I've been reading Wanda E. Brunstetter's books (she also writes Amish fiction), but Lewis' books are much better in that she is able to weave together many story lines and her books are not as predictable as Brustetter's. They are both great authors, but Lewis' aren't just Amish love stories.
So far, I'm reading the Annie Zook series (3 books in all) and The Heritage of Lancaster County Series (The Shunning, The Confession, and The Reckoning). Books-a-million had a whole bin devoted to Christian fiction... for 75% off! I picked up the Annie series there, and The Reckoning, but didn't realize it was part of a series until I got home... so I ordered the other two from a seller on Amazon for super-duper cheap.
I've been going through books like crazy. If it were not for Half-Price books and BAM's sale bin, I'd have to find some other hobby. :)
Anyway, I'm looking forward to Christmas. We're having chicken and beef fajitas over here with all the fixin's. And, my husband is off for the week following Christmas... so that's my Christmas gift right there! Lots of time with my hunky hubby!
Here are a few photos from our Christmas last year (when we lived in Louisiana)... see how much we've grown (har har):
Merika and Nolyn have gotten so much bigger... and M's hair is so beautiful and long now.
My hair has grown out some too... a little below my shoulders now. Hopefully by next Christmas it will be to the middle of my back!
The kids had a blast with Unca Chip last year.. and will this year as well. They are going to be so excited when they find out he got them a swing set for Christmas!
Oh, and look.. me and hubsters! :) I think I've gotten a little plumper and he's lost a little weight.
Can't wait to share my photos from this Christmas with you... if I remember to take some! :)
