Hark! The herald angels sing,
Glory to the newborn King!
Sleeping in Heavenly peace on a silent night
in oh little town of Bethlehem
He has come to bring joy to the world!
Mary, did you know that the child that you deliver
Will soon deliver you?
Holy infant, so tender and mild
God and sinner reconcile
Joyful all ye nations rise,
Join the triumph of the skies,
with angelic host proclaim,
Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere,
That Jesus Christ is born.
These are the carols that we sing,
These tunes are more than just holiday rhymes,
They tell of God’s love divine
Frosty and Rudolph and snow days are nice,
But they cannot compare to God’s sacrifice.
He sent His Son, Jesus, for the world’s sin to die
And for the gift of eternal life even Santa can’t supply
Christmas trees are fine to see,
But I prefer what the angels sing:
Peace on Earth and the first Noel,
Good will to men from the King of Israel.
This, this is Christ the King, whom shepherds guard and angels sing!
Salvation from sin will come from this Heavenly being!
Fullness of God in a small child
So God and sinners reconcile
by Katharine Johns
The much loved comedy, Arrested Development, has taken a leave of absence after it’s previous cancelation. For years fans of the short lived series hoped and rumored a return for the Bluth Family. It has been officially announced in a press release that Arrested Development will be making it’s return to your home sometimes in early 2013. The only new quirk about the show is that it will only be available as a Netflix exclusive. Netflix has been pondering over exclusive content for some time now and has even begun filming a few series that only they will have, but this has come as a surprise to most everyone. While some fans rejoice, others fear that Netflix will be stingy with the rights to the show and deter the newly planned season from ever seeing DVD format. The future of the show is still under wraps, and not much more has been announced in regards to the new season or if Netflix will allow it to be sold as a DVD after it debutes, but one thing is for sure, this could mean many more new subscribers for Netflix, just for the return of Arrested Development!
You may or may not have heard about the new craze in pet fashion, KO Couture. This doggy clothing line was started in 2009 by a dog owner named Kelly Owens who was going through some hard times and desperately needed some creative outlet. She never imagined that just two years later her little hobby would take off earning her the title “pet fashion expert.”
The clothes and items carried by KO Couture are beautiful and great quality items ranging in price from $4 to $700 depending on the size of the item and the amount of detail. The clothes are both elegant and functional, and are guaranteed to make any pet feel like a superstar. The clothes are mainly created for dogs but judging by some of the pictures of the items, some can also be worn by cats or young children (mainly the hats).

Imagine you’re outside on a cold winter day, snow is falling around you, your teeth are chattering from the cold. You’re freezing when you finally go inside to warm yourself. What’s the best thing on a cold winter day, after being out in the cold? What warms you from the inside out? That’s right, delicious hot chocolate.
The shop Hot Chocolate Bliss, has some of the most delicious hot chocolate imaginable, and the shop contains a vast variety of flavors.

Looking for a good movie to watch this Halloween season? Well, look no further. There are two groups of viewers out there, and there simply is no in between. The first group loves Fred and the second doesn’t care for his sense of humor. I fit into the first group, or at least I do for the Fred movies. I feel like there should be more movies like this, not in the aspect of how it is written or the storyboard, but more so relating to the style in which it is shot. It is very down to Earth and you get the feeling that this isn’t a very professional movie, it’s relatable! Before we go any further though, let me answer a few questions that you may have bouncing around in your Halloween excited head!
First, let me tell you that the part of Bertha is no longer played by Jennette McCurdy from the show iCarly. They have recase the part of Bertha for some unknown reason, but I don’t enjoy it when they switch out the roles of main characters. Second, the story is still very much like the first and you will notice elements that resemble the first Fred movie very closely. He still visits a shop where comedic humor is exchanged between him and the shop owners, Derf will appear for a moment in the movie just as he did in the first, and for those of you who don’t know, Derf is Freds imaginary opposite in regards to personality, and one last thing that you may want to know about is that this movie makes Fred seem more “unstable” than the first. While the wild imagination is a very important aspect to Fred, this movie takes it almost too far.
Overall, the movie is very entertaining and is definitely something that you will want to watch this Halloween season. It still has the same familiar humor of Fred that we have grown to love, a comical storyboard, and of course the wildly imaginative character of Fred. We recommend this movie as a good watch for this holiday season!

The shop Dream Weaver is home to some pretty amazing tea, and you can find nearly any natural tea flavor you’re looking for. This shop makes buying tea as easy as placing a simple order, and waiting! According to Bob, the man who runs the Dream Weaver shop, “I prefer to sell whole leaf teas because they have much better flavor since when you cut the teas very fine to put them into tea bags they lose flavor from being exposed to air.” The tea also comes with a reusable tea bag that can be rinsed out after each use.
Bob’s site offers many options to customers, available for your purchase, he sells; green tea, black tea, chai, white tea, herbal tea, herbs, resins, and fudge. Bob sent two sample fall flavors to the magazine earlier this week, English Toffee, and Pumpkin Pie herbal tea; both of which were very refreshing. The two flavors, which were very different from one another, had a way of warming you after a day out in the cold.
If anyone has a strong love for tea, this is the place to go! Your quest for delicious, natural teas is over, just visit www.etsy.com/shop/dreamweavershop and get shopping, either for yourself, or for friends and relatives who love tea! This would make an excellent gift during the holidays!
Fall is here and just as it happens every year, the fall drinks that we all know and love are back at Starbucks Coffee. This year they seem to have brought a few surprises with them! There are a few new drinks this fall that seem to be a huge hit with people who love drinks such as the familiar Pumpkin Spice Latte. This year they have introduced the Salted Caramel Mocha.
Something about the fall season draws people to coffee, tea, and hot chocolate more so than any other time of the year. It only makes sense that the fall season at Starbucks should be a grand time of celebration for new drinks, old favorites to return, and a cup of coffee to aid in the unwinding of this beautiful time of year. Starbucks is the perfect place to spend time this fall, so go try their new selection of fall drinks and enjoy some old favorites!
