I love Christmas!

Yes, I DO love Christmas!  I enjoy the anticipation, the look on my daughters' faces as they open a gift, pecan pie.  I love Christmas.

But in the beginning of November?  Notsomuch.  I was stunned on Monday to hear the radio play a Christmas song.  The kids told me they have been playing them on the radio for over a week.  (What would I know?  I was cruising in Mexico!)  CHRISTMAS SONGS?  What happened to Thanksgiving?

Because our amazing first born was born 10 days before Christmas, we make a distinct effort to not let her birthday get shadowed with Christmas.

So, in honor of November and Thanksgiving, please enjoy my blog's new look.  When I decorate our home for Christmas, I will change the blog over to reflect the same.  I, for one, will not celebrate Christmas until after Thanksgiving.

Hi Cheryl! My name is Melissa, from Seven Matters. I won your beautiful prayer shawl last month for most points on Home Sanctuary. I just wanted to say thank you so much! I love it!

Blessings to you!

I'm with you! I love Christmas but don't want to think about it until the day after Thanksgiving.

I completely agree with you! We skim right over being "thankful" and head right to gifts! Cute new look for your blog! May every blessing be yours with a thankful heart... Sharon

Hello friend!
Just wanted to stop in and tell you that I was thinking of you and praying for you daily! The children always remember Cameron at the meal table. Please keep us updated if you can. Have a wondeful week as you abide in Him! Oh! The date has been set... Aug. 21st 2009! Yippee!!! We will be back in CA for that time of celebration. Perhaps we can find time to sit and have a cup of coffee together!

I love you!!!
