Christmas is just two days away and I'm scurrying around trying to get last minute preparations finished up... I don't think of myself as a procrastinator, I just seem to be behind all the time. *wink*
The weather has turned colder here again and snow is in the forecast for Christmas Day. The wind is howling outside- my chimes have been singing loudly all morning. It has been several years since we got any snow on Christmas.... and I think we only had less than an inch at that. I remember my Mother telling me about the White Christmas of 1969, the year I was born; 7 inches fell on Christmas Eve and no one could get out the next morning. *Sigh* In some ways I wouldn't mind if that happened again this year....
I have to admit, there is one tradition the child in me enjoys this time of year- our church gives out "treat bags" for all those in attendance the Sunday before Christmas. This year we had a wonderful assortment: apples, oranges, bananas, tangerines, a couple of candy bars, nuts, crackers, Cheez-its and Hershey Kisses. One thing I don't understand is how the candy bars never make it back home.... *grin*
Hubby and I combine our bags (whats left of them) into a big bowl once we get home so we can grab a snack every time we walk by.
I haven't been able to do much blogging this week because I got my Christmas present a little early...
Meet the newest member of our family, Lily.
Lily is 10 weeks old and we're working on the potty training, so being at the computer while she is in another room can be a risky business at the moment. But she is such a sweetheart that it's impossible to stay mad for too long over her "accidents"... .
Getting her beauty rest is a top priority; in fact, she's laying at my feet snoring while I type this. *tiny squeeal*
Did I mention she snores?
How do all those sounds come from that little nose?
Since this will probably be my last post until next week, I want to wish all my blog friends a very Merry Christmas and a prayer that we will take time to remember and share the Reason for the Season...
"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called
Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace."
