Merry Christmas!

Well, y’all, we made it! Today is the big day!

It’s OFFICIALLY Christmas! Merry Christmas, everyone!

Most of our festivities happened yesterday on Christmas Eve, so if you drop by our house today, you’ll most likely find the hubby and I snuggling on the couch with CoCo the Black Kitty and Taffy the White Doggie with some kind of movie marathon going on! Normally we are with my side of the family on Christmas Day, but this is the first Christmas we’ve celebrated since half of my family have moved away, and the other half are celebrating about 4 hours north of us – so we’re making it a super quiet one this year.

I hope you stopped by today because you had a quiet moment in between friends and family and gatherings and wanted to be nosy and see what I was up to…

…but if you stopped by because you’re lonely and maybe even a little bit sad because Christmas just isn’t what you dreamed it to be this year, please allow me to share this with you. It’s the reason for the season…it’s the reason for all of our celebrations. And I hope and pray that it brings you the peace you’re looking for on this special day. You are loved! And much faith, hope and joy is wished for you on this day!

Merry Christmas to All!

Good morning, folks, and Merry Christmas! I wanted to share something special with all of you today!

I LOVE Christmas carols, and I pretty much have a favorite carol every single Christmas. This year my favorite one is not one of the carols we hear sung very often. Do you know it? It’s called, “I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day”.
