Christmastime on the brain

It's hard for me to think about much else this time of year. Christmas is my favorite holiday - bar none! I love all of it, Christmas Carols, Christmas programs, Choirs, Giving, sharing, family. Especially family. We have a Christmas Eve party with friends and family and that way the little ones can be home Christmas morning for their own family time.

I'm an online shopper, have been for many years. Shopping is done and all that's left is the wrapping. I'll admit, the wrapping isn't in my top 10 list but, hey, it has to be done.

This past weekend was the little boys Christmas program at church. It was preceded by a concert of the bell choir. That was a treat. The boys did a good job. Rowan had a hard time but he's only 4. He actually hung in there pretty good for a little guy. Milo is becoming a ham :)

It was a fun outing.

Even managed to get the tree decorated. I couldn't find the tree skirt I had planned on but with all the sorting I've misplaced a few things. This one is one I made for Mom several years ago and it works out fine.

P.S. They won

Christmas Nice

I got home today and in the mail was a package (ok, several), it was from a fellow blogger that was doing a Holiday Giveaway. I was so touched by the gesture I had to share. This, to me, is the absolute essence of Christmas giving. What a wonderful idea!

I can't wait to try them all!

 A couple days ago I received a gift to me in the mail. Our daughter, Crystal, had one while she was here for Thanksgiving and I decided I could use some motivation so I jumped on the bandwagon. I'm actually pretty enamored with it.

Also from a couple of days ago, I was lucky enough to get a shot of the moon coming out. The picture definitely doesn't do it justice - it was gorgeous.

Spent the weekend doing some rearranging for tree space. I thought I'd get the tree up and decorated too but that was wishful thinking. I had better get on the stick though, Christmas is just around the corner!
