yes I have heard that before, still it is not natural for a new born.

Well, my Christmas cards are made, I have to get a couple of rope lights to finish my fence in the front yard. So staging which tree I'm going to use and which ornaments for the tree. On a strict budget this year, so not many presents to be bought. It's only the husband and myself. Deciding on the comfort foods/crock pot dishes for the winter months. It doesn't get that cold here, but I'll be ready if it does decide to snow. (PLEASE, I want snow this year).

There are actually 5 months left until Christmas from today! Wow! Time really flies. :] I recently catch myself thinking about Christmas presents for my family members. As I expect to be finally employed at the job I found, I will be able to save some money for Christmas. For my Christmas tree, I will probably use the same decorations which I made last year for last year's Christmas tree. It looked very beautiful with them so I'm thinking of decorating the tree in the same way this year too. :]

You make your own decorations? That's very cool! If you can, post some pictures of your handywork, I like things like to see other peoples craftsmanship and I really apprecate their talents!

Me, I'm always keeping my eye out for things and I have been into a blowmold kick for years now! I'm addicted to them. I have enough now where that between Halloween and Christmas, I have purchased so many of them, where they now fill half of a shed from the floor to the ceiling that is 18'x18'... The wife isn't too thrilled about that, but she likes them when I put them up in the yard~

I bought my first Christmas gifts for my daughters yesterday...ordered them from Amazon. It is called the Rainbow Loom and you can make all these cool bracelets!

On Tues night my 7 y/o was cleaning her room with the radio on and I heard Christmas music...they were playing all Christmas music for the night.

I heard O Come Emmanuel...and felt giddy!

Christmas Decorating

Not only do i decorate my home for Christmas,but i also decorate my chicken coop. I have lights on coop,wreaths on doors/windows and they even get a small Christmas tree decorated with appropriate treats. My feathered children appear to enjoy all the festivities and special treats just as much as my daughters.
