Twerson definition: Twitter person, member, user.
Synonym: Tweeple

I'm officially a tweeter/twerson!! I am learning so much new twitter language - it's overwhelming!

I started my account on twitter so I would get real-time health updates to my phone from @MattChandler74 and @villagechurchtx but have lately realized the wonderful benefits of this thing called twitter!

First of all, it's just plain fun! It's an awesome way to keep in touch! And for lazy bloggers like me, it keeps people updated without having to sit down at the computer and write a blog entry!

So I invite you to follow me on Twitter (@allipenn or http://twitter.com/allipenn) and join in on the fun! Or at least take a look at my recent tweets on the right side of this blog!

Wishing you a MERRY and BRIGHT day before Christmas Eve!!!!

Christmas Pictures

My brother's longtime girlfriend Elyse is incredibly talented at photography, and she took our Christmas pictures last weekend.

I will not reveal our official Christmas picture until later, but here are a few of my favorites.

I especially love the two of Kosmo by himself - yawning and one where he has a wrinkled lip - such a silly boy! He's my little Santa Kos!!!

Madeline is worn out from all the picture taking!

Here is a picture of our house at night....I LOVE Christmas lights!!! Sweet Michael got up on the roof this year and put lights on the house.

I hope you're enjoying this Christmas season as much as we are!

Beau Hughes preached last Sunday at The Village Church on the Hope of Advent. Listen here. We have hope that we will be with Christ forever, and He will make all things new!

This Sunday is the 4th Sunday of Advent and the candle represents Peace. The fourth candle reminds us that Jesus comes to bring Peace to both the world and to people's hearts. Without Christ there is no peace in this world.

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given. And the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6-7

Peace to you and your family this Christmas.....

The Lewis' are back in town!!!!!!!

My friend, Chelsi, her hubby, Austin and sweet baby girl, Brierley just moved back to DFW from Florida!! To say that I'm excited is such an understatement!!

We welcomed her back with a little party. See her blog for pictures and details of the day!

I so love my friends from high school!

Here is a favorite picture of Chelsi and me in high school. :)
