Christmas

I have decided I need to get a little more into the Christmas spirit....the real Christmas spirit. I need to focus on the real meaning of Christmas and try to not be overwhelmed with time constraints, gift buying, etc. It is going to be hard, but time is truly more valuable than anything money can buy. If someone gave me more time in the day, shopping would not be on my list of what I wanted to do with my time. My number one priority would be spending quality time with my family. So, I am going to try in all I do this Christmas season to focus on my family, to enjoy each and every moment, and to remember the reason this beautiful season exists....The birth of Jesus Christ.

That being said, I did a little decorating today and June helped me set up our Nativity and a few decorations. Jake and I will be making candy for a holiday bake sale at church...peppermint bark and marshmallow pops (pictures and recipes to follow-hopefully). I still plan on sharing our holiday card photos and our Festival of Lights parade. Stay tuned I am gonna give this season my very best shot!

It can be so easy to lose sight of why we do all this every year- right? I try to not get wrapped in it all & sometimes it takes spending more quality time with the little ones to put it all in perspective. I can't wait to see your decorations to celebrate the season. The perspective on this photo is fabulous btw! Hugs my friend!

What a pretty photo. I'm putting more effort into Christmas this year. I got little trees for my kids' bedrooms and more decorations than what I usually do. I figured my children are only little once and I want them to really feel the joy of the season :)
