Merry Christmas from my new blog:)

Thanks for making the treck to my new blog address. Please update this address if your blog is linked to mine! I’m still adding pages, links, etc–so if you would like to have your blog linked to mine, please add yours in my comments and I’ll add your link when I update my blog roll. I *love* keeping up with so many of you–and I made the switch-a-roo to a WordPress hosting site to better protect my blog content and pictures. Still have some tweaking to do…but for now here I’ll be!

Now…to share our family’s Christmas card for 2009!

Beautiful blog. I have been following your blog for about a month….our third child is adopted from Guatemala and we are seriously praying about starting ET. (We also have a little girl named Lane….she sometimes goes by Laney). What a precious family you have and can’t wait to see how God is going to bless you even more with your new ET love. I have a wordpress blog too and was wondering if you could give me any tips on how you were able to set yours up with a great template and stuff. I see that you used a .com domain…mine is hosted at I think you have to use a self-hosted domain like yours to be able to set up more options…did you create the template and everything yourself? I know you are a busy mom, but any help would be appreciated. Your blog looks great!

I am thinking about making the move too…how does wordpress protect things?

JonesEthiopia - December 15, 2009 - 6:43 am

Could you tell me how to make the switch, too? I don’t want to go privat necessarily, but I do want to make things a little more secure. I didn’t know you could use special backgrounds and all that on wordpress!

Hey! I’ve been following your blog and would love to continue to do so! Could you let me know exactly what I should do to continue? I’d also would like to know more about the wordpress. Thanks! Heather

Looks awesome! Love how your card coordinates with your blog 🙂 I should have had you make our card…I was never thrilled with my final product. Hope the new format works well for ya…I like having a wordpress blog…pretty sure you will too!!!

love the new header!! and, as always, love your blog!

Jennifer - December 15, 2009 - 1:59 pm

LOVE IT!!! Will you share how you made WordPress so cute on one of your posts!?! I was looking at this, but the templates were so drab and I love the look on my google blogger:)

JJ - December 15, 2009 - 2:02 pm

I love it! The Christmas card is beautiful too. Ours aren’t getting made or sent out until our babies are home, so ours are going to be landing in mailboxes in February. I just can’t bring myself to make them without pictures of 2 members of our family on them. So everyone will just have to wait. I’m sure they’ll understand. Can’t wait to see more pictures. I too would love some advice and details about switching to WordPress.

I would love to be added to your blog roll….Love reading your blog & have updated it on our web. Thanks again for all the tips…. 🙂

Love your Christmas Card- Definitely have sooo many reasons to Celebrate Christ!!

Hey there! So, do you think this website will be more secure? I was wondering if I should move mine too? I love the new look

Heather Wamble - December 17, 2009 - 10:59 am
