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!


That was beautifully heartfelt.....it made me all emotional,
And I agree with it all the way BABY!
Don't you all feel it in the AIR!!!!
I do!

Good afternoon MMC friends! Like I said - I have been trying to read through posts all day & I keep getting side tracked - crocheting, trying to get all my canned goods organized - hubby just went out to mulch leaves (with the mower) - doing a lot of thinking/planning about Thanksgiving today! It's been an awesome day hanging out at home!!! I'm THINKING about putting up my Buckeye Tree in the basement tonight. I'll see what comes up between now & then! I have Hallmark movies on. I need more hours in this day!!!

We had a great time at the Winter Yuletide Gathering yesterday. I will have to send a pic of the candle I bought. I just love it & the smell...Mmmmm - Oh my!! The drive to & from Tipp City was just gorgeous - the Christmas music in my car was awesome! Went out with friends last night. Ran into my bestest friend - was so great chatting with her. Haven't seen her for a couple months! We are both very excited for our annual shopping trip next month! We will be invading Made's state!!! Hee hee! Actually I will be invading Mades state on Tuesday - shopping with the neighbor ladies! Yippee! There is some great shopping in Indiana!

Our girls v-ball team won state yesterday - boys football won the 1st playoff game-big win! Great day all around!!!

I finished my Christmas afghan! I'm happy with how it turned out. I'll post some pics of that too after I take some! On to the next afghan!

Hope you are all having a super great Sunday!!

I'm watching the colts game and thinking I need a drink!!!! 38-8? Really? We are letting the Rams beat us up like this? Fox could at least switch us to the the Green Bay game so I could scan the crowd for Snowflake.

What are your weekend plans?

My parents & Jazzie are heading up today, to hang out with us for the weekend. And tomorrow, Adrian & I, and some friends are going to Lambeau Field for the Packers-Eagles game. Bless my parents hearts, they made the trip to take care of Harlowe for us while we're gone. They adore her, and vice versa, so it all works out! And Jazzie & Har enjoy seeing each other, too.

Our friend, Eric, is coming up today as well. We are going to pick up his brother along the way tomorrow, and then meet my uncle & cousin for a bite to eat before the game. They will be there, too! Should be fun!!
Let's just hope Seneca Warren has been practicing this week!!

We have done some Christmas decorating this week, a little something here & there after work each day. We hung red & white lights on our deck, changed our outdoor bulbs to red & green, put battery operated wreaths around our carriage lights & front door, battery operated pine boughs on our stairway railings (love those, multi-colored or white lights, still or blinking), hung a few xmas signs, and even hung my vintage "believe" stocking. Yay!! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!
Next weekend, I will be decorating the trees. Adi will put them up before he leaves, and I will decorate them & more things around the house. The village is after that! Can't wait!!

Work has been keeping me busy. Lots to learn!! And we've been short-handed with people being sick, and extra shoppers out & about.

I may not be around much for the next couple of days, but I'll be good, just enjoying my time with family & on the road trip. Go Pack, Go!!

Hope you all have a blessed & lovely weekend!!

xx

Snowflake - it sounds like you have an absolutely awesome weekend planned! Enjoy every minute! How nice of your parents to make the trip to watch Harlowe! I'm sure they totally enjoy that! Great weekend all around. YAY!!!
