The First...

Well, here goes!

It's December, Christmas.  I LOVE the Christmas Season!  Spending time with family without all of the hustle and bustle of our daily lives is special and important....savor it!
I am reminded of the special importance of this time.  Christ's birth.  The promise of new beginnings, great joy and the comfort of a loving God.

I'm busy wrapping presents and double checking all of my lists!  I'm not a big fan of wrapping but this year I went the "extra mile" and even made most of my own bows!  My Mom would be so proud of me.  I have to tell you, I "channeled" Mom the whole time!  Some of them even really look good!

My house is all decorated, inside and out!  Do you think 4 Christmas trees are enough?  I had help with 2 of them, Cooper and Sadie spent the day with me and helped decorate the tree in the dining room and the one in the foyer.  Cooper named the one in the foyer the "dog tree" because it has all the doggie ornaments, butterflies and jingle bells.  So much fun!  So far, the Paps have been good and haven't messed with any of them!  woohoo!

I will try to post pics of my trees and the house, just have to get some good shots first!

Ok, I think this is enough for my first blog post. 

Merry Christmas!
