Some Christmas thoughts and pics~
I must admit that I'm not as excited about Christmas this year as I usually am,not to be a downer but there have been so many trials this past year that I guess maybe I just feel a bit worn down.
I've been reading my bible alot lately,especially in the mornings.It's comforting and brings me some peace in this crazy thing that is my life.
I truly love Christmas and I'm trying to be festive,really I am!I know the kids are super excited and putting up the tree,decorating it and making the cookies have been so much fun.
My youngest is almost 4 so needless to say he is really into it this year and even got into the cookie making.
I am blessed and I know it,even through the hardest times I know things could be so much worse.
I'm going to brave some stores and try to get the last of my shopping done today,I think that entails a trip to Starbucks for that yummy peppermint mocha!
Here are some pics I've taken over the last week or so,putting up the tree,making cookies,etc~
