In My Heart Its Christmas!

This is a small look inside my heart! In my heart its Christmas! My tree is decorated, christmas carols are playing and cookies are cooling on the stove. What is wrong with me?? I always used to preach about how awesome Thanksgiving is and how its my favorite time of year.( and often sideswiped by Christmas) But somehow, something has changed. Im ready to put up our new beautiful pre-lit Christmas tree and trim away. My list is written, it has already been checked twice. I can't wait!! Is it too early to watch the Christmas movies? Im buying special Christmas books to read and can't wait to decorate my Mantle with my Christmas swag... made with love by ME!!!
I have been bitten hard by the Christmas bug and am ready to spread some holiday Cheer. My list of traditions are long ! New Christmas ornaments will be bought this year and new Christmas crafts will be made. I want to experience it all and have a magical holiday!!! Gingerbread houses will find their way into our home along with hot cocoa by the gallon! We will go to the parades and decorated houses. Trips downtown to see the Festival of Trees will be made several times and this year we WILL ride that Christmas carousel. Homemade gifts and treats will be passed to my neighbors and friends. If only every year could hold the magic and love that spills out of our hearts. I feel like the Grinch who's heart expanded 3 times!!!
So, what are your Christmas traditions and what are you waiting to do this year???


  1. My husband and I went to Kazakhstan a few years ago to adopt our 4th child. We left here December 1 and got back December 23 (which was a complete answer to prayer that we didn't have to miss Christmas with our other kids). Anyway, we basically missed the Christmas season that year. Ever since then we are all about enjoying every minute of the Christmas season. The kids work on memorizing Luke 2, my husband puts up lights now, the tree goes up right after Thanksgiving! So I'm with you!

  2. I feel your Christmas Cheer!!

    I am looking forward to making lots of Christmas candy's and cookies. And most of all I cannot wait to watch "The Grinch who Stole Christmas" the best movie ever!!
