Tis the seaSON!

It's the FIRST of December! I cannot believe this year has flown by. Christmas is one of my favorite times of the year. There is so much JOY, GOODNESS, and LOVE felt from within.

Over the Thanksgiving weekend my family pulled out our Christmas stuff. My mom had like THREE extra stockings she pulled out. "Which one do you want" she asks. I reply, "The same one I've always had. What's the others for?" Guess what her reply was... "I found these on sale and one is for your husband." YEP FOLKS, now that Im finished with school, my mom is pushing marriage. HELLO its not like I have CHOSEN NOT to get married yet!! I can just imagine a conversation that goes like this: Oh hi, um I know its our second date, but want to come home for Christmas? My mom has a STOCKING for you! Ha ha! Silly mother!

One of my goals last year was to do some kind of service each day throughout the month of December. How far did I get....Till like Dec. 5. I am really working hard on keeping CHRIST the MAIN focus. Anyone have any daily ideas I could do? A lot of families have those FHE Christmas books... I want to make one- for me and my husband of course :>
