Merry Christmas!

Wow, it has been a very busy last month!  Time has flown by and too many things have happened to even recount here right now.

However, we are enjoying the holiday season and making preparations (like baking cookies, decorating, shopping for food and gifts, etc.) to celebrate Christmas this Saturday.  We took several weeks off from homeschooling and have enjoyed some nice times together as a family.  With the kids being teenagers, it is hard to find Christmas activities that are not geared towards little kids.  It is hard to believe how much my kids have grown up!  I am going through another transition in how I deal with them because of how mature they are getting.  And change is always hard!

I truly enjoyed decorating our home this year!  There were so many decorations that I haven't been able to us for  many years because of space limitations.  However, this house has so many places that can be decorated that I was able to use almost ALL of my decorations and even had to buy a couple of things to supplement!  I am very happy with how the house looks, except that our 6 1/2 foot tree now looks like a table top tree!  Hoping to get a 9 foot one for next year!

Here is hoping that you have a warm, peaceful holiday season - celebrating the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ!!  He IS the reason we celebrate this season!
