The Coat

This is a great message! Charity can be demonstrated any time of the year! My boys asked to watch it over and over! Carter even gave me a hug at the same time Pres. Grant gave his mom a hug. :)
Click on the title, The Coat, to watch. :)

"Special" Cookies

I am a horrible mom. I got these Christmas cookies for the boys (from Babe's Bakery - the yummiest place, anyway...) - for a special Christmas treat, you know. While the boys were sleeping, I couldn't resist. I HAD to try a little bit of the sugar cookie Santa and gingerbread boy. Now they really are "special" cookies. ;)

Love Christmas Cards

I love everything about Christmas! I love what Christmas represents - our Savior's birth. I also love the lights, trees, decorations, the spirit of giving, family traditions, the goodies, wreaths, Christmas books (which I collect, and read a different story under the tree each night), Christmas music, wrapping gifts (yes, I enjoy doing that), stockings, candy canes, doing the 12 days of Christmas for a family secretly, etc., etc...

I love all of the above, but I especially love walking to the mailbox in hopes of Christmas cards. I love to see how everyone's family has changed over the last year...and the cute/pretty cards that are out there! I put them around our windows by our Christmas tree...and always have a hard time taking them down after Christmas.

Temple Square + Little America for Dinner = New Browning Christmas Tradition

 The boyz were in awe! At Christmas, Temple Square is so magical!

Cannon a little intimidated by the fake Santa.

A Christmas Quote to Remember...

"If you desire to find the true spirit of Christmas and partake of the sweetness of it, let me make this suggestion to you. During the hurry of the festive occasion of this Christmas season, find time to turn your heart to God. Perhaps in the quiet hours, and in a quiet place, and on your knees—alone or with loved ones—give thanks for the good things that have come to you, and ask that His Spirit might dwell in you as you earnestly strive to serve Him and keep His commandments" (Howard W. Hunter, "The Real Christmas," Ensign, Dec 2005, 22–25).
