All I needed to know about Christmas
I learned on MMC:

Celebrate all year long
Sing a Christmas song at least once a day
Play games with others
Laugh together
Pray for each other
Cry when your heart aches
Bake often and share the recipes and pictures
Watch Christmas movies, even in the summer
Take lots of pictures of your furbabies to share
It is ok to say Merry Christmas, happy holidays or Xmas
Say thank you often
Say hello to newcomers
Believe in Santa…and
Never, ever, loose the wonder of everything Christmas


Christmas is coming again, as it does faithfully every year.
It will come no matter what is going on in the world and in our lives.

We together have faced a year of great joys, welcoming new lives into the world and great sorrows in saying goodbye to friends, family members and beloved pets.
Praying, laughing and crying together as we shared those moments in our lives that we just knew others here would understand.

From daily conversations, to those special times of community chats, Christmas in July and greetings on the podcasts. With the ornament exchange and the mailing of Christmas cards, we bring Christmas into each others homes from around the world. Our very own Kringle radio keeps us dancing to Christmas tunes all year long. Of course we cannot forget the main event party of the year, “The Worlds Largest Christmas party”!!! The only one you can attend without the worry of what to wear.

So celebrate the birth of Jesus and the miracle of His coming. Get together with family and friends. Believe in Santa Claus and his magic. Give to those who are not as blessed as you are. Brighten those dark nights with bright lights and beautiful decorations.
Be excited, the Christmas season is about to begin!
Great post, Star. Superb!!!!!

2013 Chevy Traverse. It only has 12,000 miles, so it is basically brand new. We've bought our last 4 vehicles at this place that we go to. This place is awesome. They've sold 200 cars already this month. They're making the money for sure! Anyway, I LOVE it.

I am getting ready for a day at work so I must run but wanted to wish you all a good Sunday! As I will be in the city later I will get to see the lights and decorations throughout the city. They switched on Christmas lights on Friday and I am looking forward to that!! Tis the season!

See you all tomorrow!
Have a good day at work! Enjoy the scenes while you're out in the city!

Good Morning MMC!!!! It's going to be a warm day here with a high in the mid 50's. Not much going on here. I've been dealing with my niece's this morning and reading through things on here. I'm dealing with a headache and didn't sleep very well so I think a nap is in order this afternoon. I don't know if I will get it though with the Colts playing this morning and then the race later this afternoon. I'll try to catch up some more on here too. I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not too much going on for me today. Unfortunately the girls all have to work again today. And my husband has a few things to do around the house. So I am going to head over to my parents house by myself to have lunch with them. My brother will also be there with his wife so it will be nice to visit all of them. I will meet up with my hubby and kids later today for dinner. I hope everyone is well and has a very happy Sunday!!!
Enjoy your day, HmG, as well as your visit with your family!
