September 2012 Member of the Month!
I have started this at least 4 times and will get it finished this time come he ll or high water.

Our September member of the month has been nominated a few times and won hands down this month (well, last month)

She hails from Tennessee but moved to Louisiana on December 21, 2007 to be closer to her husband's family because his aunt had a stroke and they went to help her. She was a firefighter for 6 and half years (our MOM, not the aunt) in Tennessee and is now a wife and very proud stay at home momma to 7 wonderful kids - 4 girls and 3 boys. She loves to write poetry, take pictures, LOVES cooking and is an avid reader!!!

Her favourite part of the Christmas season is hard to pin down as there are so many things she loves but the most important however is being with friends and family. It must be said that another important part in her love of Christmas is MMC itself. There are so many things to see and do here that even if just one day is missed you miss a lot and she loves that about MMC! It's centre is Christmas, but there are so many other things to get involved in throughout the year. She's really hooked on the MMC podcasts too!

Her Christmas tree is always decorated the day after Thanksgiving and she and her children get in the kitchen on Christmas eve and bake cookies for Santa. It's a tradition which was started with her own mother and my sister and brothers so it continued when she became a mom herself. Once the cookies are made, they settle down before bed and read The Night Before Christmas and the story of Christ's birth from her father's bible, the very same one he read out of to her and her siblings.

She has two Christmas dreams. The first Christmas wish has always been to sing "O Holy Night" in the evening service on Christmas Eve and the other is to see Graceland at Christmas

To finish, our Member of the Month was asked "What does My Merry Christmas mean to you?" Her answer was simple..... "It means so many different things to me but the one that stands out is I found old friends here and made so many new ones who all seem like family to me! The fact is that everyone here keeps the spirit and love for Christmas all year through not just one day a year and THAT'S the place I want to be!"
