Peace on the Earth
Goodwill toward ALL! (even that guy who almost ran down the girls and me in the parking lot today)
.
Have a blessed Christmas, filled with everything that makes it special for you and your family.
.
Please pray our trip is safe and also pray for my FIL's mother, who's been in and out of the hospital - that she would be healthy and aware for the holidays.
.
God Bless you!

Check it Out
If you've been reading my blog for a while, then you know I've been making lame attempts at improving my health. I say lame because I always tend to fall off and then it's a while before I get back on board.
.
No more. Last week, I joined a weight loss center (you know, like the ones in the commercials - "I did it and you can too!"). And in my first three days, I lost 7 pounds! Seriously. I am going to be the "biggest loser"!!!! And I'm eating. Too much, I feel. Actually, last night I nearly choked down the remainder of my food for the day. And it isn't "special" food that I have to buy from the center. It's basically what I'm making for my family, only mine is carefully measured out. And, yeah, I'm losing weight.
.
I won't be chronicling all the details here, some of you will be bored to tears by the details by knowing me other than this blog..... but I will eventually share pictures of my journey.
.
I want to use this few minutes to let you know that I will be gone until Christmas - maybe after.
.
May your Christmas be filled with love and light and the joy and peace that only the celebration of Christ's birth can bring!
.
JOY TO THE WORLD!!

'Tis the Season
I can't find my battery charger for my camera...
.
I took my car for an oil change and found out it needed a major repair (we thought it was a minor thing leaking - we were wrong)....
.
I can't shake this pounding headache for nearly a week...
.
But, I am so happy! This is the season it's all about! The celebration of the coming of Christ!
.
I love to give gifts to others....
.
I love to receive beautiful cards in the mail....
.
I love to see visiting friends and relatives....
.
I love all the family togetherness.....
.
I love all the lights, the sounds, the music, the smells.....
.
I love baking for others....
.
I love lighting candles and saying prayers with my family.....
.
I love talking about why Jesus is not yet in the manger (it isn't his "birthday" yet!)....
.
I love the promise of hope for the new year.....
.
I love the craziness and happiness and giddiness of children and adults....
.
I love that I can say "Merry Christmas!" for a whole month.....
.
I love that people smile back!
.
I love our tree and I love that the kids get excited about $1 plastic candy canes along our sidewalk....
.
I love the purple at church - the music, the poinsettias!
.
I love being busy and preparing and making memories with our family....
.
I love knowing that the things we do with our daughters are being engrained on their brains and will be (hopefully) fond memories when they are adults - things they want to replicate with their own families....
.
I love that my girls are willing to use money from their piggy banks to buy toys for kids who don't have any....
.
I can't wait to make cookies with my girls and create new traditions together....
.
I have a lot to do, so I will sign off for now. Once I find the battery charger, I promise to share some new photos!
.
Until then, God be with you!
.
Rejoice, rejoice! Emmanuel! Shall come to you, O Israel!
