Trying to Feel Like Christmas


I still need to get my blog post about Hawaii done. Yes, Jarom and I went to Hawaii a couple of weeks ago and it was fabulous. But in the meantime, I'm trying to get my rear in gear and make it feel like Christmas around here. I don't know what the deal is, but I am struggling this year. I have zero desire to get the decorations out, I haven't made one single batch of goodies, I don't even have my Nativities or Christmas cookie jar set out yet. And Christmas cards? Yah....don't count on one from me. It's SO not going to happen this year. Sheesh....my poor kids. I'm bound and determined to be finished Christmas shopping by tomorrow (but I don't think I'm going to make it. A lot is done and now I'm down to just the odds and ends.) and then the kids are out of school for the rest of the year. I'm hoping to start some baking, game playing, and gift delivering to get the Christmas feeling alive in our house. How are things coming along at your house? I hope you're feeling it more than me this year!

when we got back from thanksgiving decorating was the last thing I wanted to do & then I went to the store & the kids in front of me in line starting singing christmas songs & I wanted to kick them! Ha! I was stressed before I even started!! I made Tim put up the tree & decorate. The only thing that saved me was thinking about explaining our nativity scene to Isla! What a blessing. Thank goodness Christ is the reason or I wouldn't celebrate! Ha!

I haven't been feeling it either! Hoping I can start enjoying it this next week now that most of the "TO Do" list is done. I love you cards. Send them out in January. Someone sent me one in Feb. one year. It was great!

How fun that you got to go to Hawaii - especially when it's cold outside here! I can't wait to hear about your trip.

OH boy - I definately have had years like this where it feels like nothing is getting done on time. Somehow you just do your best and Santa makes it anyway!
Good luck :-D
