‘Twas the weekend before Christmas and all through the town there were presents to be wrapped and stores filled with crowds. You see what I did there?! That is a true reflection of my weekend! Friday (my friday off.. YES) was a day for last minute Christmas shopping, stocking stuffers and all. It seems like a lot of people had the same idea because the stores were pretty crowded. Among the last few gifts on my list, I finally got a star for the Christmas tree! While the Christmas section at Target was pretty picked over, I was still able to find what I wanted. I mean, in Target even if you don’t find exactly what you went in for you still end up spending even more than you would’ve if you had found what you were looking for. Am I right or AM. I. RIGHT!? It was somewhat of a whirlwind trip, but hey, we got everything we needed so I’d say it was a success!
With Christmas on the single digit countdown now, I am really savoring our last week or so of a Christmas decorated house. I really loved our tree this year, our nativity scene, how we hung the cards we got. Well, ok, yeah, I really just loved it all. Here are a few scenes from my house. I hope you enjoy them as much as I’m enjoying having them up!

THREE more days until Christmas people!!!!!
For most, the Christmas season comes along with the excitment of gifting and receiving the perfect gift for or from loved ones. However, I sometimes feel like this becomes the prime focal point of Christmas, rather than what it is really all about. There are so many gifts we take for granted or don’t even acknowledge we have received. This season I challenge you to open your eyes to the gifts you have received from the Lord, that may not be tangible; but, are far more valuable than something you’ll find wrapped under the tree. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
