Merry Christmas

I am now VERY ready for a Merry Christmas.  The presents are purchased and wrapped.  The office gifts delivered, the neighbors gifts delivered.  The Christmas ham and turkey are purchased and the winter picnic is ready to prepare on Monday.  I have listened to tons of Christmas music and watched dozens of holiday movies.  I am also preparing for my birthday dinner Sunday.  I am ready to concentrate on the people in my life who make this season so special--hubby and the kids and grandkids.  I am also devoting more time to my Savior because HE is the reason for the season.  Merry Christmas!

Christmas Fun

We put Christmas decorations up right after Thanksgiving and love the holiday spirit in our home.  I have addressed and prepared Christmas cards for mailing, have the neighbor gifts ready to deliver, and have done some of the family shopping.  We did mail the Maryland gifts!  I have new stockings for Hudson and Jett.  I hope to have most of my shopping done by December 15th.  I had a chance to see the decorated candy windows at Macy's at City Creek Center and some of the beautiful decorations there.  We are going to a nativity display tonight.  Today my dear friends and I had a delightful day: got our hair done, went out for breakfast, and went shopping at Tai Pan Trading.  That's a cool place to shop!  We also exchanged gifts, laughed and relaxed.  Great break from the holiday bustle!  Now I'm ready to enjoy the rest of the Christmas season--more movies and music, more family parties and get-to-gethers, more of the Christmas Spirit!
