Christmas is such a wonderful time of year! I keep trying to remind myself of that as I stress over having money for the holidays and getting all the presents made that I need to make. Every now and then I just have to take a deep breath and tell myself I will get everything done!
I thought I would share some photos from around our house.
I have seen some people saying on Facebook that they have lost their joy this year. I know the stress of the holidays can cause this to happen. So many people struggling in this awful economy makes the holidays harder than they used to be. Several years ago I decided to just believe what is suppose to happen will happen and though everyone gets down once in awhile I thank God for all the joy I have in my life.
Decorating for Christmas makes me happy--though I will be ready to take them down when the holidays are over. :)
Love this painting of Santa my Grandmother painted.
I even decorated my car this year. Meet my Cruizer the red nosed reindeer--Chantel thinks it is so embarrassing. As a Mother, embarrassing my kids is my job. I picked Chantel and a couple of her friends up at school today and I said, "All abroad the reindeer express". :) Chantel did not seem amused :)
Sending all my blogging friends many Merry Christmas wishes and hoping you are all finding joy in the season!
Thanks for visiting!
